CHARLOTTE, N.C. With 9.5 million Tweets zipping around, it was hard to keep track. Here were 10 of our favorites:
Tonight! Charlotte, North Carolina is full of Democrats – it’s either the Apocalypse or the #DNC2012!
First impressions of Charlotte. Almost as humid as Tampa but smells like barbecue.
So basically the DNC is like Hunger Games and our hotel is in Katniss’ district, except I don’t remember hookers in the movie.
I’m in (Uptown) Charlotte wearing more press lanyards than a concert roadie, in an impeccable suit and great shoes. Ready.
Bank of America Stadium: You Didn’t Fill That #DNC2012
@BarackObama, my offer still stands: two friends & I will make the drive just to hold umbrellas for you and your teleprompters. #DNC2012
Just overheard at #dnc2012 as rain came down: “All you delegates showing up in wet t-shirts: Clinton spoke *last* night.”
After Clinton’s sensational speech, huge wave of positivity swept up Dems. After Obama’s so-so speech + jobs report, the wave’s crashed.
If Obama loses it will be because of the lack of a balloon drop. People love balloons. Bouncy bouncy balloons.
Well, Charlotte, this year, you got the Bachelorette and the DNC. Now move along.
