Nearly 8-in-10 Latinos use social media, and Twitter was definitely active during the third Republican presidential debate.
Taking into account all ethnicities, Donald Trump was the most discussed White House hopeful on Twitter during Wednesday night’s debate. Based on Twitter’s data, Trump accounted for 22.3 percent of the conversation share among all the GOP candidates. However, Trump’s share of conversation dropped considerably compared to the second Republican presidential primary debate on CNN on Sept. 16. The CNN debate had Trump with 37 percent of the conversation share.
