10 Tweets About The DNC That Will Make You Proud To Be Liberal

Social Media Is In Love With The DNC

Twitter, by its nature, condenses matter down into bite-sized chunks of 140 character or less. It’s also immediate — people whip out their phones and react to exactly what is happening, at exactly that moment, and so it has a way of capturing the sentiment of the public, in real time, in a way that nothing else really does. And as the DNC provides viewers with one rock star speaker after the other, in a convention that has been, so far, high on drama and draped in pageantry, from the impassioned and passionate speech by Michelle Obama, who undoubtedly stole the show on the first night, to Bill Clinton’s more muted, personal speech that was, at its essence, a love letter spoken to his wife on national stage, Twitter provides insight to public opinion.

As we go into day 3 of the DNC, leading up to tomorrow’s big night when Hillary Clinton will formally accept the Democratic party’s nomination for President of the United States, we’ve gathered up some of the best reactions to the DNC on Twitter so far.

On Michelle Obama, who so obviously slayed it:

To the emotional moment that Bernie Sanders’ own brother cast his delegate vote which was just…well, watch. (I’M NOT CRYING, YOU ARE.)


Which led to the historical moment when Bernie Sanders, in a display of unity, nominated Hillary Clinton.

Which led to literal, actual history being made on the floor at the DNC, as the party who elected America’s first African American president became the first party to nominate a woman candidate.

The second night of the DNC ended with Bill Clinton, a speech that was remarkable in its intimacy, in its tenderness, in its success in introducing the world to a Hillary Clinton with whom they may not yet be familiar.


The DNC is re-introducing Hillary Clinton to the American public, reminding the world that America has always been great…and shaping history at the same time. While one party argues about whether or not Donald Trump is too racist, or if their strategy of focusing only on the votes of angry, white men will work, liberals focus on what we can do to make our party more accountable and open. While Conservatives argue about whether to abolish the minimum wage, we argue as to how high it should be raised. Our arguments center on how to bring as much good to the common good as we can, while the Republicans argue about how many rights they can strip from the middle class while rewarding the wealthy with tax breaks and call it “freedom.” Even our disputes are better.

The difference between the two parties in America has never been so great. And the world is taking note of the stark difference between political parties, as they should. It will only work in our favor. Liberals should be proud of the DNC, our party, of what we have accomplished so far — and how we will shape the future when we defeat Donald Trump in November.
