CHARTS: Social Media Analysis Reveals Just How Badly Mitt Romney Trounced Obama Last Night

Taykey, an advertising company that monitors social media volume and tone, passed along some of the most compelling graphs that show just how significantly Mitt Romney trounced Barack Obama in last night’s debate — at least in a social-media context.

The graphs measure volume — or how many tweets are going out about a candidate — and sentiment, which gauges how positive the tweets are. 

Here’s how Obama fared over the course of the evening:

Contrast that with what people were saying — and how much people were saying — about Romney:

That’s a pretty significant difference, only enunciated more by this chart laying one graph over the other.

Pay attention especially to sentiment, where it’s clear that people weren’t just talking about Romney the whole time — they were also saying better things about him, too:
