The ‘Paul Ryan: How the Conversation Took Off’ infographic gives explanation to the immediate and seemingly sudden intensity of Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s Vice Presidential pick. Ryan being tapped for the role of VP was kept under lock and key until hours before the announcement.

Though the administration and key coordinator Beth Meyers, put in great effort to not have the information released, NBC was able to scoop them and announced, via Twitter, the information regarding Ryan’s appointment at midnight, approximately seven hours before Romney officially confirmed himself.

The Paul Ryan: How the Conversation Took Off infographic is part of an interesting rise in which social media is playing a huge role in the political realm. With its ability to release immediate, timely and relevant information, social media has become a great asset to journalists and politicians everywhere.
