Now we compare the distribution of Twitter exposure of CNN debate versus the first debate, one month and a half before.
We see that Donald Trump created a similar degree of buzz on both debates, arounf 40% of all mentions. Fiorina increases substantially her share of voice in this second debate (she did not take part in the main debate at Fox News). Jeb Bush also reinforces his visibility, while Ben Carson loses some of the impact created in the first debate.
