Missed the first Obama-Romney debate tonight? Twitter didn't.
Tonight's debate was the most tweeted about event in US political history, topping the numbers from the RNC and DNC.

The hands-down winner of the 1st debate was Twitter. But we knew that going in.

Romney Emerges Ahead
CBS News instapoll: 46% said Romney won. 22% said Obama won. 32% said tie. Decisive win for Romney.

As an "undecided" voter who isn't a fan of Obama, I gotta say POTUS came off as weak as he did in EVRY debate against #HillaryClinton in 08.

If Big Bird's out of work, he'll at least have company with the bonehead at @kitchenaidusa's twitter account tomorrow.

Deepest apologies for an irresponsible tweet that is in no way a representation of the brand's opinion. #nbcpolitics

The good thing about public social media gaffes is they're powerful teachable moments - they remind ALL of us to be intentional w/our words.
