The presidential campaign has begun with new impetus following the March 11th elections to Congress, the Easter holidays and the lack of merger between Fajardo and De La Calle. Extraordinary interest in the candidates’ debates echoes what can be detected on Twitter: the volume of campaign tweets has gone up from 1,870,709 (with 198,825 users) to 4,519,579 (334,861 users) - a growth of 142%- between February to March. All candidates’ followers have continued to grow steadily since February, with Petro way ahead of all others. Of course, this data needs to put in relation with the number of votes that the different candidates got in the March election. And there, Duque got a healthy headstart.
