Twitter Decides

25 July 2010

The Gillard-Abbott debate lit up the Twitter stream with keywords topping the worldwide trending topics and the reaction recorded by bots and pulse checkers. While each tracker will no doubt claim a winner I thought I’d throw in my own evaluation of the debate by comparing the buzz of the buzzwords. So, fair dinkum vs moving forward – who is our winner?

Moving forward peaked at 0.04% of tweets

Fair dinkum peaked at 0.08% of tweets

So there you have it. Abbott’s fair dinkum trumped Gillard’s moving forward with twice the reaction on Twitter to the true blue catch cry. Now we just need to figure out if this is a good thing or a bad thing!
