The 76 Best Tweets of the Democratic National Convention
After what went down at the Republican National Convention last week, it was always going to be tough for the DNC to create the same amount of buzz.
Or so we thought.
The convention was a highlight reel of grandstanding and speech-giving, from Michelle Obama actually delivering Michelle Obama’s speech, to Bill Clinton making a pitch to become the country’s first First Man, to a Katy Perry performance that one man really, really, enjoyed.
Twitter was there to take it all in and then spit it back out with venom, vitriol and videos.
Day 1: “United Together”
The DNC brings the big guns early with Michelle Obama.
Since this video is produced by JJ Abrams, I assume we won’t know anything about Michelle Obama when it ends.

In a perfect world, Sanders would take the stage and say “tits out for harambe” and then drop the mic and walk offstage
