Supreme Court Healthcare Decision Generated Over 13,000 Tweets Per Minute

Everyone was talking about the Supreme Court's decision on health care reform yesterday, which means that everyone was talking about it on Twitter. The news that SCOTUS had decided to uphold the Obama administration's Affordable Care Act dominated the twittersphere more than any political event since the president's State of the Union address way back in January. According to Twitter's official government account, chatter about the news peaked at 13,166 tweets per minute. Not too shabby for a complicated judicial ruling on an even more complex piece of legislation.
