Liveblog: How is the Trump-Hillary Debate Playing on Social Media?

At 9 p.m. Eastern time, two widely disliked political figures will go at it, in what has been described as "the greatest political show on Earth." Pundits expect an audience rivaling that of the Super Bowl — perhaps around 100 million Americans. That suggests a huge presence on Facebook and Twitter.

More than half of Americans reportedly fear a Donald Trump presidency, and nearly that many also fear Hillary Clinton in the White House. That suggests an even greater explosion of social media bullets as the candidates go head to head this evening. Indeed, two hours before the debate starts, #debatenight is already the top U.S.A. trend on Twitter.

PJ Media has asked for your input for debate questions, and here are some of the results (more available at the link): Clinton has a lot to account for, both candidates are horrible (are you both just Satan in two different bodies?), why isn't Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson on that stage?

As the night proceeds, I will be capturing the key moments here, so feel free to tweet at @tyler2oneil and @PJMedia_com if you have any insights! Also, check out Stephen Green's drunk blog here. Let the games begin.

11:35 p.m.

And that's a wrap! I hope you all enjoyed the social media reactions — they were certainly better than the debate itself. Just for kicks and giggles, here are my Twitter polls on the debate. One's finished, but the others are still going. Feel free to vote in them!

Seriously, Cthulhu or Sweet Meteor of Death? It's a close race.

And Trump beats the apocalypse. Who knew?

By the way, here are the top tweeted moments.

And Trump won the Twitter debate.

11:15 p.m.

Hands down perfect.

And Howard Dean called Trump a cocaine user.

Yes. It's true.

10:41 p.m.

Yes, Hillary needs to learn this.

Pertinent question.

The sad thing is, Lester Holt was unfair to Trump, but it was almost impossible to see, since Trump kept interrupting so much. Hillary didn't exactly look good, but she was slightly less horrible than the competition.

10:31 p.m.

Is Donald Trump a satire of himself?

So true.

Oh euphemism.

Yes, this is the accurate summation of the debate.

10:27 p.m.

Sauron came out ahead in this debate.

Or did Romney-Obama?

But hey, this is fun to watch.

10:25 p.m.

Who is really winning this debate? Definitely not those who are campaigning.

Trump has a better temperament...

First debate summarized.

10:15 p.m.

So, when Trump was saying ICE endorsed him, he didn't mean ISIS.

This needs to happen.

And this is why you can't vote for Hillary Clinton.

10:09 p.m.

Yes! I wasn't alone. Hillary said "Obama went high." This is what Students for Liberty thought of that.

So I know this was like 52 issues ago, but it's still a great tweet.

People are missing the non-nominees. Hard core.

10:05 p.m.

Vodka (or is it whiskey?) the drink of the hour. (Or maybe the next four years.)

Bipartisan consensus.

Speaking of breaking the consensus, here's Tom Woods.

10:01 p.m.

People of color are not happy with this debate.

No, they are not.

And Michael Moore ... holds nothing back.
