Micro-blogging website Twitter has just released some interesting figures around the recent Parliament monsoon session that took place in the capital. As the session ran its course with the No Confidence motion, Twitter claims that it recorded more than 1.1 Million tweets being shared on the platform. The tweets recorded were made during a span of the weekend, i.e. from July 20 to July 22, 2018. As the government and the opposition took their turns on the no-confidence motion debate, many Indian citizens joined in with their opinions on Twitter.

Twitter has also released a heat map to display the areas with the maximum number of tweets during the recorded duration. Amid all speeches, the conversations on Twitter peaked on the platform between Jul 20, 10:30 - 11:30 pm IST, and lit up the country as seen in the heat map below. Key hashtags that emerged on Twitter around the subject included #MonsoonSession, #NoConfidenceVote, #NoConfidenceMotion, #BhookampAaneWalaHai, #KyaHuaTeraVaada, #NoConfidencePolitics, #hugplomacy and #IndiaTrustsModi.
