On Twitter, Criticism of Obama’s State of the Union Speech Outpaces Praise; Many Different Issues Discussed The reviews on Twitter regarding the State of the Union Speech were more negative than positive, as many users opposed President Obama’s specific policy proposals. Education was the largest topic while several economic issues, such as jobs, the deficit and energy, were also among the most discussed. However, a number of other topics, such as the minimum wage and climate change, received almost as much attention on Twitter despite shorter mentions from the President.
