Charlotte - On Tuesday, Fox news asked, "How will Michelle Obama's speech stack up to Ann Romney's?" If the number of tweets per minute during a speech is any indication, then the question has already answered itself.
A Twitter blog post said that among tonight’s keynotes, First Lady Michelle Obama’s (@MichelleObama) Tuesday prime time speech at the Democratic National Convention drove a staggering 28,003 tweets per minute (TPM) at its peak, nearly double the 14,289 mark reached by Mitt Romney‘s (@MittRomney) acceptance speech at the Republican convention last week.
"One line in her speech this evening — “we've got so much more to do” — saw 22,004 TPM," the blog post read.
These impressive numbers put the Democratic National Convention way ahead of its Republican counterpart in just its first night, TechCrunch said.
One of those tweets, no surprise, came from her biggest fans: the President and daughters Malia and Sasha who watched from home (the president stayed behind so that he could take his daughters to school).

According to Mashable, by the end of its first night, the Democratic Convention as a whole had sparked more than 3 million tweets, nearing the 4 million point reached by the entirety of last week’s Republican Convention.
If you didn't get a chance to watch the speech that Mashable says destroyed Twitter, you can watch it in its entirety above.
