The Republican National Convention may have been all about the GOP, but Barack Obama still came out victorious in the world of Twitter for his simple and direct response to Clint Eastwood's odd speech. After Eastwood used his time during the RNC to rant in the direction of an empty chair that was meant to represent Obama, the POTUS responded with a few words saying, "This seat's taken." Along with the tweet came an image of Barack, which you can see in the second thumbnail. Eventually, that post by @BarackObama was re-tweeted over 50,000 times and became the most re-tweeted tweet of entire convention.
