1) Recap of last night's democratic debate:

The Chairman of the Democratic National Committee funneled four pots of coffee before taking the stage and nearly has a heart attack while screaming about the republicans.
2)The quote of the night is already, "Climate change threatens our universe."
Never change, Tom Perez... Never change.

The moderators are introduced.
We have three hours of tonight's debate featuring ten candidates talking for seven minutes each divided into segments of four
3) I'm already confused.

ONE?! Only one of these jobbers has dropped since the last debate? How is that possible? I'm looking directly at you, Beto.
The national anthem is sung and shockingly, all the candidates remained standing and no one took a knee.

Both #DemDebate and #DemocraticDebate trended immediately prior to, during, and after the first night of the July Democratic presidential debates. We performed some comparative analysis of the traffic mentioning each candidate.

@ZellaQuixote Which candidates received the most discussion? Warren and Sanders topped the list, followed by Buttigieg and Williamson. We included tweets containing the candidates first name, last name, or Twitter account, excluding common first names that introduced ambiguity.
@ZellaQuixote Next, we performed sentiment analysis on the traffic mentioning each candidate. Overall, the average sentiment scores were higher during the first half of the debate than the second, with John Delaney experiencing the most drastic reduction.

Unpopular opinion: There is no moderate voter to be won in the 2020 election, and the response to the #DemocraticDebate shows just how little the Left understands this. (Thread)
I heard/read so many people say, "Oh, but Bernie/Warren shouldn't say Medicare For All/Green New Deal/etc. because we're going to lose the moderates/undecideds/on the fence-ers, electability, blah blah blah." This assumes two misunderstandings.
A) That we can change a (current) Trump voter into a Democrat voter and
B) That the choices are Trump or Electable Dem X

This is just wrong.

@rlefraim wrote, "QUESTION:

The media, talking about the Democratic Party debates, keep talking about "progressives versus moderates" in the mix of candidates.

I am confused. Where are these moderates? 1) #DemocraticDebate #Progressives #Moderates
Democrats all claimed they would provide illegal migrants with full free health care. 2) #Democrats #DemocraticDebate #freehealthcare #illegals
Democrats all refused to condemn anti-Semitism and the anti-Semites in their party. Two of them sought endorsements from Louis Farrahkhan 3) #Democrats #DemDebate #Antisemitism #Antisemites #LouisFarrakhan

@NoraBrup @Nikkithegreen Especially since many states lack the resources to fight a #CYBERWAR backed by the resources of countries like Russia, China, North Korea, Saudi Arabia...

Deleted the tweet praising Williamson’s answer on race.

She is even more dangerous than i realized. Thanks to all the folks #onhere who quickly educated me.

Me when I finally started digging in on Marianne Williamson.

I thought she was just weird.

She’s a WHOLE problem.

When she first announced her run a lot of white women on IG told her not to and tagged me as someone she should learn from.

Meanwhile all I really knew about her was that Coach Carter quote 🤷🏾‍♀️

(1/3) The good: That looked more like the fiery Bernie I supported in 2016. Bullock has crossover appeal; any D who can win over Republican Montana is doing something right. I can't help liking Williamson. #DemocraticDebate
(2/3) The meh: Pete is just hot air. Warren is like a schoolmarm. She just sounds phony. Got in a good line on Delaney, who's a pathetic joke. Funny thing is she could have used that line on Hillary too, when universal healthcare was "just too much to wish for."
(3/3) Watching mostly for entertainment purposes. My two favorites, Gabbard and Yang, are up tomorrow.

A group of right-wing trolls are pushing (#)DemDebateSoWhite and it’s being boosted by a handful of accounts created in June/July 2018.

These nearly identical tweets were posted within 22 min of each other. #DemocraticDebate #CNNDebate

The top tweet that comes up when you search (#)DemDebateSoWhite is from this guy, who created his account on July 27, 2019 and is using the same photo as a 2015 account by the name “Troy Smith.”

The first account he followed was Carpe Donktum. #DemocraticDebate #CNNDebate

This account, created yesterday, is spamming the hashtag (#)DemDebateSoWhite and retweeting Carpe Donktum’s tweets using the hashtag. (Noticing a pattern yet?)

It has one follower: Right-wing group Campus Hate Watch. #DemocraticDebate #CNNDebate

Independent Political Commentators Censored Amid Democratic Primary Debates…
Meanwhile the corporate-sanctioned "progressive" commentators like @TheYoungTurks conveniently memory-hole candidates, which is the other side of the censorship coin:

Just my opinion here, but I don't think it's a coincidence that @nikoCSFB's @McscNetwork coverage of the first night of the #DemDebate received 90k + views, and was prevented from live-streaming on the second night. #DemocraticDebate

I wouldn't be surprised if Kamala Harris ends up being President Trump's opponent. She had a great debate tonight and she would definitely satisfy the leftward lurch of the Democrats. #DemDebate #DemocraticDebate

Who killed it in the first night of the first #DemocraticDebate of 2020? Let's ask the denizens of Twitter! #DemDebate

cc: @ZellaQuixote
We downloaded tweets containing "is killing it" or "killed it" for a period of roughly three hours beginning at the start of the debate). Here are the words that most frequently preceded "killed it" or "is killing it.” Most are the names of candidates.
We then aggregated the tweets by which candidate was being referenced. Slightly over half of Twitter concluded that Elizabeth Warren killed it in the first debate, followed by Julián Castro and Cory Booker.

Folks, I want to be very transparent that I take the debates seriously & for that reason I will continue to call out Rep Tulsi Gabbard for the fraud she is. I refuse to let her RT-approved talking points get lost in shuffle of this intense ping pong match

#DemocraticDebate Tulsi, these are friends of Putin, not liberal democracy

"Kitchen table" is such a terrible way to say "proletariate issues"

What kind of economically ignorant question is it?

Translated: @amyklobuchar wants to means test.

"It never ends," says @POTUS on @FoxBusiness, reacting to news of special counsel Mueller to testify before House committees on July 17. "You had crime on the other side."
"It's probably the biggest political scandal in history," adds @POTUS of the "spying" on his #Election2016 campaign.
"We had a deal" with #China "that was really close to being done," says @POTUS, on the phone with @MariaBartiromo. "We're open, but China's not open."
