I have already commented on the lack of info graphics from the National Party during the Budget Statement. My main observation was the lack of graphics that they were tweeting during the statement. However, 90 min after the start of the statement, they posted the graphic below. What I don’t understand is why did they not tweet this during the statement, as opposed to just a bland quote from the speech. The below graphic gets the same point across, is more pleasing to the eye, and despite being available for 1 hour 15min less, it has 5 more retweets and 12 more favourites. This goes to show that graphics are more likely to grab attention and be shared.
