The Results Are In!

Did you ever think your Twitter stream could help you decide the next president? SwiftKey, the famous makers of the Andriod keyboard app that predicts your typing, utilized its software to analyze 150,000 words from Barack Obama and Mitt Romney to determine how your language from your Twitter handle compares to the candidates.

As a newly registered and undecided voter, I wanted to see how my Twitter handle swayed. My instantaneous results revealed that my Twitter handle language was 81 percent (out of 100) more like President Obama.
SwiftKey also analyzed the Tweets of famous personalities such as Donald Trump (@realDonaldTrump) and Glenn Beck (@glennbeck), the results were surprising.
  • Donald Trump scored 61 for Romney (to be expected)
  • Rupert Murdoch (@rupertmurdoch) tweets more like Obama 51 to 49 Romney
  • And the kicker, notorious conservative Glenn Beck scored 81 for Obama
  • Lindsay Lohan (@lindsaylohan), a reported Mitt Romney supporter, uses language more like Obama by 82

How did you Twitter handle compare to the results?
