We took a gander at #DemDebate/#DemDebate8/#DemocraticDebate traffic for the Feb 7 debate. Volume was lower than the previous debate (peaks at 3.5K tweets/minute vs 5K), possibly due to the debate being on a Friday night. We saw little in the way of automation.

@ZellaQuixote Which candidates were discussed most during the 8th #DemDebate? @BernieSanders, followed by @PeteButtigieg, @JoeBiden, and @ewarren, with all seven participants showing up in more #DemDebate tweets than the candidates who didn't make the debate.
@ZellaQuixote @BernieSanders @PeteButtigieg @JoeBiden @ewarren Retweet network for #DemDebate etc. Traffic is split into a left-wing cluster and a right-wing cluster. The right-wing accounts focused on Biden and Buttigieg, while the left-wing accounts mostly discussed Sanders and Warren (who was behind Biden and Buttigieg in total volume.)

#1 Tom Steyer is as bland as unflavored Jello & adds no value to the debates. Enough of the white guilt speeches already. He needs to go away now.
#2 Andrew Yang can only sing one note: the Value Added Tax. It's fun to talk about Yang's ideas, but so is debating Star Trek & Star Wars issues. But at the end of the day, we all know that the Force doesn't really work. And, neither would Yang's proposals.

A Trump blackmail victim, a socialist & Democrats walk into a bar and agree:

Joe Biden is a good human.


"Joe Biden is a man who has devoted his entire life to public service and to the well-being of working families and the middle class" - Bernie Sanders, Oct 2015


"I have known Joe for many many years and I think regardless of one's political views ... Joe Biden is an extremely decent, down to Earth person who has not forgotten where he came from, a working class background" - B Sanders, 2016

When Steyer, Warren, Tulsi Gabbard, Andrew Yang & Marianne Williamson all join with Bernie Sanders & doom us to a loss, you're gonna regret that we didn't unite behind VP Joe Joe Biden

Consider the number of open primaries where Republicans will vote Bernie to doom Democrats
Joe Biden sends a message to the world ... we are restoring stability & integrity

Policies we can all agree on, someone we know & trust, a genuinely good human and a safe bridge to the future
Even Bernie agrees Joe Biden will fight for the "working class"

"Biden is a man who has devoted his entire life to public service & to the well-being of working families & the middle class" - Bernie Sanders

Joe Biden is the unity candidate and it could not be any more obvious

Nina Turner doesn't want voters to see this before New Hampshire votes

Yes, Nina Turner loves Joe Biden

It's ok, Nina - tens of millions do 💋

Presidential candidates used to run from the issue of gun safety––now they recognize you can't win without running on it. #DemDebate #democraticdebate
While Trump and the Senate Majority Leader continue to choose the gun lobby over saving American lives, tonight’s debate sent a clear message that change is coming in 2020 with a new pro-gun safety president. #DemDebate #democraticdebate
And @MomsDemand volunteers will organize across the country and fight for a leader who will fight for us. #DemDebate #democraticdebate

yet another hit piece against a certain candidate.
"In a rant on MSNBC that went viral on Tuesday evening, the longtime Democratic strategist vented his concerns about the party’s prospects for beating Donald Trump, taking particular aim at the party’s leftward lurch."
"We have candidates on the debate stage talking about open borders and decriminalizing illegal immigration. They’re talking about doing away with nuclear energy and fracking. You’ve got Bernie Sanders talking about letting criminals and terrorists vote from jail cells.
It doesn’t matter what you think about any of that, or if there are good arguments — talking about that is not how you win a national election. It’s not how you become a majoritarian party."
"For fuck’s sake, we’ve got Trump at Davos talking about cutting Medicare and no one in

And so it begins. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders gearing up for a fight. #DemocraticDebate
#FakeNewsCNN lies all the time and Warren should call them out. Now this is playing out in the public domain. Fantastic!
What's said in the dark comes to light.

The most interesting exchange of the debate came at the end when Elizabeth Warren refused to shake the hand of Bernie Sanders

Anyone want to take a shot at what was said between them?

The tense exchange after the debate between Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders

Cropped closer and slowed just a smidge

Tom Steyer knows at least part of what was said between Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders

Early observations on tonight's #DemDebate/#DemocraticDebate tweets:

• More tweets than the last debate; peaked at over 5K tweets/minute vs 3.5K
• Most tweeted about candidates thus far: Sanders and Warren. Despite not being in the debate, Yang beat Steyer.

@ZellaQuixote We updated our dataset of #DemDebate/#DemDebate7/#DemocraticDebate tweets to include the 10 hours immediately before and after the last debate. All the numbers got bigger, but @BernieSanders and @ewarren are still the most discussed candidates.
@ZellaQuixote @BernieSanders @ewarren Retweet network for #DemDebate/#DemDebate7/#DemocraticDebate. Sanders was a hot topic on both sides of the aisle, while Warren was discussed mostly by the left. Gabbard has the distinction of being the only candidate whose own #DemDebate tweets were largely boosted by the right.

Elizabeth Warren tried to talk with Bernie Sanders after the #DemocraticDebate ended.

He literally turned his back on her and walked away.

You can read the body language for yourself.

Here’s the video.

Sanders approached Warren with his hand out. She did not take it and began speaking.

He then held up his hands as if to push her away and then turned his back and walked off.

I hope he was saying let’s talk later.

I disagree it’s “odd” to refuse to shake the hand of a friend who has called you a liar rather than say “I don’t recall saying that, and it’s certainly not what I believe.”

I respect her refusal to make nice.

Would very much like to know why @CNN accepted a massive ad buy for tonight's #DemocraticDebate from an actual bona fide hate group founded and supported by white nationalists

He did shake her hand at the beginning ... then, there was the exhange at the end if the debate between Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders
Bernie Sanders' interpersonal communications ... the face, the hand gestures, the dismissive attitude

Scowl, point, the hand, dissmissed, turn back and ignore

New! Watch! 🔥🔥🔥(Did I do that right, kids?)
Excited for 2nd episode of @MyRadarWX climate series, after the #Paradise fires. What does recovery look like in an age of #climatechange? Rebuild or retreat? Watch (and read).

MyRadar is the world's most popular weather app; the CEO @agreen (he also brought you Flightwise) is committed to educating people about how a changing climate will impact how we live and where we live. He let me, @milesobrien and his team tell this homeland security story. 2/
We've been amazed at the response to our first episode on Bahamas. You can watch it on youtube and the myradar app (better idea) and we hope we can top 2 million views this time. 3/

@ZellaQuixote Which candidates came up most frequently in #DemDebate tweets? @BernieSanders, @AndrewYang are virtually tied for 1st place, followed by @ewarren. All seven candidates on the debate stage were tweeted about more than those who were absent (this hasn't been true of past debates.)
@ZellaQuixote @BernieSanders @AndrewYang @ewarren Much of the Yang-related traffic is the result of hashtags - #YangGang, with 21504 tweets, is the hashtag most often accompanying #DemDebate etc, and several other Yang-related hashtags turn up as well. #KAG and #Trump2020Landslide appear courtesy of @DanScavino.

Here is the UN Press Briefing Room from which Inner City Press is banned for 535th day by corrupt UNSG @AntonioGuterres; before @UN_Spokesperson @StephDujarric started late, it submitted 7 questions #Cmr #Hnd UN rape - no answers, cover up. Thread

There is no question that the two women candidates won the #DemocraticDebate. @amyklobuchar and @ewarren each raised issues no one else did and answered questions the moderators asked that other candidates side-stepped. Each made powerful cases for her electability and strength.
.@TomSteyer had his best debate thus far. But his argument that no one else can bring it to Trump is false. He's not that strong a debater. @AndrewYang was better than Steyer, but still too dependent on his $1k UBI. He had a superb statement about being a feminist ally, though.
.@JoeBiden had a better debate than any recently and did a good job reminding people that he has been on the political stage for decades in a good way and only referred to Obama twice.
@BernieSanders was repetitive shouty Bernie. Warren won the left polemics over Bernie--bigly.

Biden - B+, but because he's Uncle Joe, America gives him an A.
Klobuchar - A- Really good, tough, but kind
Yang - C even though he pissed me off
Steyer - C even though he pissed me off
Buttigieg - B- even though he REALLY pissed me off
Warren - G and in OMG, she seemed petty and mean and Mayor Pete made her look really bad.

Sanders - F - for fraud who made every issue just his issue
I actually wish Warren had performed better, but she was really off tonight. Also, she doesn't get to pick up "prosecute the case against Trump" just because Kamala suspended. Not cool, Senator, not cool

1/ THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4417: Democratic Presidential Candidate Debate — Mayor Pete's Nonverbal response to Senator Klobuchar's Defense • #Nonverbal #EmotionalIntelligence #BodyLanguage #BodyLanguageExpert #DemocraticDebate #Debate
2/ Earlier tonight, during the Democratic Presidential Candidate Debate, Senator Amy Klobuchar defended herself, Senator Warren, Senator Sanders, and Vice President Biden against previous criticism by Mayor Pete.
3/ Before Mayor Pete could respond verbally, his immediate nonverbal response was a classic example of a rapid series of Body Language displays — a nonverbal sentence known as a Cluster.

#DemDebate How are you all feeling about what’s going on tonight?
Shit just got real. #DemocraticDebate
(I’m still not endorsing anyone):

Biden’s strongest debate.

I missed Booker.

I always learn something from Yang.

Warren makes it look so easy.

Steyer was solid.

Bernie always seems the most sure-footed.

Klobuchar is going to surge.

Buttigieg always picks a fight.
