Political Discourse Fuels 200 Millionth Comment On HuffPo, Romney Vid Ranks No. 1
Fueled by community dialogue surrounding political discourse, the Huffington Post estimates it will post its 200 millionth reader's comment sometime early tomorrow.
How much posts related to the campaign season contribute to the milestone may not be discernable, but consider this stat offered by HuffPo's PR team: "It took six years for the first 100 million, but only around 15 months for the second."
Not surprisingly, the top five commented-on stories of HuffPo's brief history have been mainly political in nature, including No. 1, "Mitt Romney Video: Barack Obama Voters 'Dependent On Government," which garnered 171,160 comments.
Two of the other top four were also political in nature, and Romney-related at that:
Iran Updates: Live-Blogging The Uprising - 96,281 comments
Supreme Court Health Care Decision: Individual Mandate Survives - 71,632 comments
Mitt Romney: 'I Never Paid Less Than 13 Percent' In Taxes - 62,562 comments
