Democrat claims most re-tweeted message of GOP convention

The most re-distributed tweet of the Republican National Convention came from a Democrat.

A representative of Twitter said Sunday that President Barack Obama’s message rebuffing Clint Eastwood’s speech was the most re-tweeted message of the GOP event.

"@BarackObama This seat's taken. OFA.BO/c2gbfi,"

Eastwood's speech came the same night Mitt Romney accepted the Republican presidential nomination in Tampa, Florida. The legendary actor and director posed questions to an empty chair, which he said represented Obama.

The sprawling, off-the-cuff address drew criticism from some, who said Eastwood's unorthodox remarks overshadowed Romney.

The Twitter representative, Rachael Horwitz, said Thursday’s Obama tweet was the president’s second most re-tweeted since he began using the social media network, after a message announcing his support of same-sex marriage in May.
