It seems social media has been getting in the act with the birth of Kate Middleton‘s baby, the Prince of Cambridge with a total of 487 million tweets and counting during her eleven hour labor process.
That number is continued to go up even higher now that the successor to the royal family has been born with celebrities, fans, politicians and the media taking to congratulate Kate Middleton and Prince William who are said to be jubilant with the addition of the newest member to the royal family who now stands third in line in succession to the royal throne.
Carving up the statistics, the UK’s dailymail goes on to tell that that just on 41 per cent of the posts came from the UK, while the US accounted for 29 per cent, followed by Canada and Australia, and two-thirds were made by women.
Within hours of the Palace’s announcement that the Duchess had gone into labour, the term ‘#royalbaby’ had become the most popular topic on the UK site, while the words ‘Kate Middleton’ were a top discussion in the US.
At least seven topics relating to the royal baby jumped to the top of the ‘trending’ list, and among the most popular was speculation over the baby’s name.
