At 9:00 PM Sunday night, just 7 hours after the first videos popped up, there were more than 120 placements, 24,000 views, and 600 comments. 12 hours later, at 7:00 AM Monday morning, the video [link] had spread far and wide, skyrocketing to more than 450 placements, 3.2 million views, and 35,000 comments.
Since then, placements, views, and comments have grown consistently, with a spike late in the afternoon, pushing the event’s footprint past 650 placements, 5.5 million views, and 48,000 comments (!!).
Obama’s victory speech got 5 million views with 200 placements after 24 hours; the Bush shoe-dodging video got less views (4.4+ million) but far more placements (650) in the first 24 hours.
