The last day of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC, was full of celebrities, touching moments, rousing speeches (I'm looking at YOU, Jen Granholm!), and -- finally -- President Obama's speech accepting the nomination. And social media was following right along:

So the people holding the HOPE banner...they know this is the same guy, right? #dnc2012
curious why a commentator would say this is NOT the mommy party but the daddy party? why does confidence or a good speech need gender? @cnn
The Bidens' Speeches
Vice President @joebiden: “Osama bin Laden is dead, and General Motors is alive.”
Shame on Joe Biden, turning the Bin Laden killing into a cheap political slogan.
If you are playing the new Joe Biden drinking game -drink every time he says literally- you are drunk by now. Literally. #DNC2012
Ummmm not to be rude but Biden is taking, like, a really long time to give out this award. #VMAs
I like to imagine Jill Biden & MObama hanging out drinking martinis, complaining about this silly "why I love my husband" speech obligation.
Gabby Giffords Leads the Pledge of Allegiance
And it felt like all of Twitter choked up as Gabby Giffords led the pledge of allegiance.
Amazed by Gabby Giffords. I was a primary caregiver for someone w a severe brain injury. I have a small idea of what that huge moment took.
Gabrielle Giffords just said the Pledge of Allegiance at #DNC2012 and I'm pretty sure there's not a dry eye in the house.
celebs endorse Obama. i just don't give political credit to celebrities. they will not sway my vote. #dnc2012
The crowd is grooving hard to EWF "Shining Star" #DNC2012
"You may not be thinking about politics, but politics is thinking about you." - Kerry Washington #DNC2012
@kerrywashngton "The other side wants to...render us invisible." getting great response from delegates..."none of us can be silent"
Fun fact: Scarlett Johansson comes from longtime NY Dem family; grandmother was a tenants'-rights advocate. (via the New Yorker)
Thanks Scarlett Johansson for reminding us that pretty girls can be smart too . Ladies that IS allowed .. instagr.am/p/PQMsqaF6pS/

Frank, Granholm, Kerry Deliver Scorching Speeches
WATCH: Barney Frank Unleashes And Goes On A Rant Over 'Myth Romney' Read more: read.bi/NPgXKP
I see your Myth Romney and raise you a B(a)roke Obama.
Barney Frank on stage now, undermining the sanctity of Newt's three marriages.
In your car & on your ballot, the D is for Drive forward & the R is for Reverse. And in this election, we're driving forward, not back!
Is Jennifer Granholm a real person? It looks like she's an actor, playing the role of a kooky pitchwoman. This speech is weird.
Did someone give John Kerry permission to open up a can of whoopass or WHAT? #DNC2012
If I ever get a time machine, I'm using it to take this John Kerry back to 2004.
Kerry line you'll definitely be hearing again: "Ask Osama bin Laden if he's better off now than he was four years ago."
Shorter John Kerry: "Mitt Romney is an exact copy of me except he has an R behind his name and darker hair." #DNC2012
What was your most memorable moment from the convention? Or were you not watching?
