"Hillary Clinton" - trending with 42k tweets.

I was reading my twitter feed tonight and noticed that "Hillary Clinton" was trending with over 42k tweets.
I am a Sanders supporter and have never actively searched Hillary tweets before, but I was curious to see why she was trending so... I clicked the trending link.

I was quite surprised to find that a very significant percentage (probably the majority) of this trending Hillary Clinton feed was fairly to very negative. Some of it was obviously right-wing vitriol, but a fair amount seemed more progressive and left-leaning, and more than a little was apparently coming from Democrats who were experiencing a change of heart. The following article particularly struck me...
Falling out of Love with Hillary Clinton

If you're a twitter user, (either pro Hillary or otherwise), I'd be interested to read your impressions of this trending feed.
