The Death Of Margaret Thatcher: 43% Of All Social Mentions Were Negative [INFOGRAPHIC]

Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher died yesterday, and her death, much like her life, proved to be a deeply divisive affair.

Indeed, while her passing triggered a huge reaction of 900 posts per minute in the first three hours of the news breaking, some 43 percent of these mentions were negative, with less than one in five people (19 percent) displaying any kind of positive sentiment.

Almost half (46 percent) of all mentions about Thatcher took place in the UK, with 25 percent in the U.S., and it was President Barack Obama’s Twitter message that generated the biggest response, with more than eleven thousand retweets.
