Two statistics from Twitter Government - @gov:
- Tonight's debate was the most tweeted about event in US political history, topping the numbers from the RNC and DNC.
- 17,000 Tweets per minute for "Big Bird" and 10,000 Tweets per minute for "PBS".
The US unemployment rate has edged down to 8.1% nationally but any failure to continue that momentum will be seized upon by Republicans.
The lackluster debate performance from Obama, who has been called the greatest communicator since Reagan, gave us our October surprise.
The dust is settling on a successful night for Mitt Romney but the show must go on.
