What Twitter Thought Of The 2014 State Of The Union Address [INFOGRAPHIC]

What Twitter Thought Of The 2014 State Of The Union Address [INFOGRAPHIC]

Millions logged in during the 2014 State of the Union address to share their thoughts and read what others had to say, in real time. Here’s a look at what Twitter thought of President Obama’s address.

MWW, one of the US’s top public relations firms, explored Twitter’s real-time reactions to the State of the Union in the below infographic. They looked at more than 670,000 tweets to determine what mattered most to Americans.

Interestingly, the most-tweeted part of the speech wasn’t a particular issue. During Obama’s discussion of the gender gap, he mentioned the show Mad Men, which sent Twitter into a frenzy – but didn’t have any long-term impact on the sentiment about the topic.

Other issues that provoked a significant response on Twitter included health care (which resulted in a drop in sentiment from a vocal minority) and veteran care (when Twitter users rallied with positive sentiment around wounded soldier Cory Remsburg).
