AUSTIN, Texas -- Many Austin residents were late to work Thursday morning as traffic came to a standstill in many parts of the city due to the presidential motorcade passing through.

On Thursday morning, President Barack Obama headed from his downtown hotel to a DNC event at a private residence, tying up traffic as his motorcade drove down major thoroughfares in Austin -- right in the middle of morning rush hour.

According to Trendsmap, the hashtag #ThanksObama was trending in Austin throughout the day Thursday and even Wednesday night, when Air Force One landed at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport and Obama headed to a private DNC fundraiser at the home of director Robert Rodriguez.

Other president-related trending topics in Austin on Thursday included fundraiser, @ParamountAustin, @BarackObama, motorcade, paramount, #obama, potus, presidential, obama, #potus and border.
