An infographic by Meltwater looking into the social media comments that took place in the first 12 hours after it was announced that Margaret Thatcher died peacefully following a stroke, discovered that only 19 per cent of mentions had positive sentiments.

The research found that 43 per cent of mentions were negative, while 39 per cent were neutral.

However, a positive tweet from Barack Obama on the death of the only female Prime Minister was found to be the one which received the most retweets.

It was also found that 25 per cent of comments came from the US, making the country second behind the UK (46 per cent) in terms of discussion, while the Netherlands came third with six per cent of the discussion taking place there.
