Clinton wins battle of debate re-tweets, not so much that whole election thing

While it certainly won't predict election outcomes, Hillary Clinton won the re-tweet battle this evening.

The Clinton campaign’s use of Twitter’s re-tweet function, to disprove Trump’s debate claim that he’s never suggested China was responsible for deploying climate change mythology, got over 4.8k shares. 


That’s more than double the number of shares Trump’s most popular debate tweet received. Said tweet was also simply an announcement that his "team of deplorables" would be managing his account during the debate.

Also worth noting, as MacLeans was quick to point out, Clinton's social media team walked away the winner of the post-debate gif battle.
