It wasn’t in a speech or a statement that Barack Obama announced that he was going to be re-elected as the President of the United States. It was through Twitter.At 11:14 p.m. @BarackObama tweeted, “This happened because of you. Thank you.”A few minutes later: “We’re all in this together. That’s how we campaigned, and that’s who we are. Thank you. – bo.”And finally, along with a photo of him and Michelle Obama, the president tweeted, “Four more years.”That last tweet is now his most re-tweeted tweet and one of the most re-tweeted tweets ever. Twitter would not confirm if it was the most, but just 40 minutes after posting, it had 308,705 re-tweets.According to Twitter, after a network call of the presidential race at 11:19 p.m., there were 327,453 tweets per minute.On Election Day itself, there were more than 20 million election related Tweets.
