Alckmin registers 45k mentions in interview for JN newscast

The interviews hosted this Wednesday night (29) by Jornal Nacional and by Globonews with the presidential hopeful Geraldo Alckmin contributed to propel the debate about the former governor of São Paulo on the social networks; however, the repercussion was less significant than that of the question-and-answer sessions with Ciro Gomes (on the 27th) and Jair Bolsonaro (on the 28th). We registered 44,965 publications on Twitter about Alckmin between Wednesday at 7 pm and Thursday (30) at 7 am – the debate about Ciro reached around 107 thousand publications, and about Bolsonaro, 1.3 million.

There was a peak of 21,550 mentions (around 359 per minute) to the PSDB candidate yesterday at 8 pm.  The volume of references to Alckmin was higher than the one generated in the first Globonews question-and-answer session on August 2, when we registered 174 tweets per minute at the peak moment (11 pm of August 2), and in the debate at Rede TV! on August 17 – 143 tweets at its peak of mentions at midnight. However, the pinnacle of references to the candidate is still the one registered with the debate at Band (August 9), when there were 111,899 daily tweets (751 per minute at its peak).
