State of the Union Tweets Visualized
An interactive visualization from Twitter shows how President Obama’s State of the Union address captivated social media. The visualization lets users see what topics Twitter users were tweeting about during each paragraph of the President’s speech, and how the conversation moved through policy areas such as energy, jobs, fairness, healthcare, and defense. The conversation, which peaked in volume right around the time the President made a “Mad Men” reference, varied state by state, and users can also see how engaged in the conversation each state was at a given moment.
