CNN was expecting one more player for the debate, since they had a backup podium in case Joe Biden decided to show up at the last minute. ​And indeed he showed up, but not in the flesh. His presence on Twitter was greater than Chafee’s, Webb’s or O’Malley’s, which is shocking considering he wasn’t even on stage fighting for speaking time.

But the VP’s field may have narrowed after the debate. Clinton came out strong and her debating experience showed. On Twitter, the main points related to the Secretary revolved around #Benghazi, #equalpay, #woman, #uniteblue and #email, the last of which was shot down by Bernie Sanders in his usual grumpy way.

The real surprise apparently was the Vermont Senator himself. Topics around Sanders were dominated by #whoa (not an acronym, just an interjection). While a lot of viewers were talking about his comments on #revolution and #socialism, he was the clear winner of the debate on the social channel, garnering several #great, #won, #winner and #vote.

Surprisingly, there were no noteworthy mentions of other topics such as Planned Parenthood or they Keystone XL pipeline. Even less were the mentions about the other 3 hopeful candidates.
