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.
