Bernie Sanders won last night’s Democratic debate. That is, if you’re using Twitter followers for your data. 

While Sanders beat Clinton in sheer number of followers, they were evenly matched when it came to who Twitter users were talking about. 

Clinton was able to snag the most tweeted moment of the debate by referencing the most popular movie of the year, Star Wars

Her stance against backdoors in encryption also gained traction online.
