Bernie Sanders won the Republican debate on Twitter

Everyone was trying to get a few more words in during last night's Republican debate, and that included the Democrats, who were chiming in on Twitter apparently to some success. Twitter says that Bernie Sanders ended up with the most retweeted tweet of the night, out of all presidential candidates. It's no surprise given that Sanders continues to draw huge crowds by tapping into the issues that Democrats care about. The same goes here, where he literally just lists things Democrats are concerned with:

‏@BernieSanders
It's over. Not one word about economic inequality, climate change, Citizens United or student debt. That's why the Rs are so out of touch.


Sanders is, of course, right.

1. Yes, he did win that debate. It was where I watched the debate, following Bernie's responses

to the Repubs and watching the support he was getting for each response, sometimes as many as 4,000 retweets on one response alone.

His final tweet got over 20,000 retweets four times the number of the second most tweeted candidate, Hillary Clinton who got only 5,000. She was hanging out with the Kardashian 'clan' at an over $2,000 a plate fundraiser, while Bernie was debating the Republicans. Her final tweet to ask for MORE money.

Bernie's was about the issues NOT discussed in the debates.

People haven't yet grasped the power of Social Media, even on the Left where people still think the MSM has much relevancy left.
