Delhi polls: Posts that went viral on social media

A stumped Delhi was abuzz with Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) overwhelming victory against the nation’s biggest political parties. The streets had AAP supporters thanking voters throughout Tuesday. While the ‘aam aadmi’ fervor swept Delhi, the cyber space was roaring with hashtags, memes, one-liners and jokes.

Social media, which has been extremely pro-Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) all through the 2014 Lok Sabha elections and thereafter, was a transformed place altogether. AAP was at the centre of all conversations.

According to Twitter, #DelhiDecides was the top trend with 81,000 tweets, followed by #AapSweeps with 61,000. At 1.30pm, Twitter trends touched a record at 160 tweets per minute. It came as no surprise that Kiran Bedi, Arvind Kejriwal and Narendra Modi were the most popular names on social media.

In an attempt to map social media buzz and collate the best of Delhi’s ‘D-Day’, exchange4media lists the top conversations by media personalities that were shared on social media throughout Tuesday. Dr Subhash Chandra of Zee Group tweeted: “BJP president's belief in a community is one of the reason for defeat in Delhi” , “Also BJP ignoring it's well wishers & supporters is another major reason & needs correction”, and “Delhi election results should be accepted by BJP as nature's gift to avoid major problems.”
