Twitter reaction: the final leaders’ debate

While the final leaders’ debate raged on, we kept an eye on what the Twitter folk were saying. Here are some of yesterday evening’s better tweets.

ONCE AGAIN, IRISH political debate dominated Twitter for a large chunk of the evening. As last night’s final leaders’ debate entered its last stages shortly before 11pm, the #rtedeb hashtag was trending at number two worldwide.

Quantity and quality don’t always go hand in hand however, so we’ve sifted through the masses of tweets to bring you some of our favourites. Enjoy.
