The tweets were flying in reaction to the launch of the iPhone 5 on Wednesday. So, what types of responses did the new phone elicit?

A full 39 percent of the tweets about the iPhone 5 were positive, according to a report from research firm Crimson Hexagon. Among those, 14 percent said they were excited about the new phone or planned to buy it and 18 percent were eagerly anticipating or were excited about the launch itself. Just 7 percent of the positive tweets centered around new features such the support for 4G LTE.

Others tweeters discussed more neutral topics. Among the 30 percent included in that category, 18 percent were just “spreading the news,” while 6 percent talked about sales expectations. Another 6 percent asked questions about the iPhone 5.

But 12 percent of the responses were negative. Among this crowd, 8 percent didn’t care about the launch or thought it was just hype, while 4 percent said they wouldn’t buy the phone or said they didn’t like Apple or the phone’s new features.

And a hefty 19 percent tried to express their comedic talents by injecting some humor and sarcasm about the phone and the launch event.
