Second presidential debate tweets exceed 7.2 million
Voters took to Twitter during Tuesday evening’s presidential debate, in numbers that would make a binder full of women burst.
In total, users watching the debate between 9 p.m. and 10:39 p.m. sent 7.2 million tweets.
“This is more than the entire VP Debate last week,” said Twitter’s Government & Politics team. 3.5 million tweets were sent during the vice presidential debate.
The first presidential debate, however, still holds the Twitter record, with 10.2 million tweets sent during a U.S. political event.
