1. The number of followers, tweets, re-tweets, had no reflections on the number of votes and those in the bottom 35 accounted for <5% of the vote and those that dropped out account for <1% of the vote.
2. The tone or the negative tweets didn't negatively reflect on the support at the polls.
Three things that didn't surprise me
1. only 50-70% of candidates used twitter and/or facebook, and some of them didn't use it at all
Candidates in the 2010 October Toronto Mayor Race (official primary or active twitter account)2. There was a lot more sharing of ideas, by the otherwise 35 unknown candidates to the 5 in the media spotlight (ignoring those that dropped out the race before the deadline)
3. Some candidates just used it to follow or put another down instead of sharing their own platform.
4. The number of non official mayor accounts (I found 38) almost out numbered the number of candidates 40
unofficial, unreal, or funny, copycat or mocking, but isn't imitation the best form of flattery
