Immigration Question Sparks Most Tweets During Presidential Debate

Out of the 7.2 million tweets sent during last night’s presidential debate, the reaction on Twitter peaked with 109,560 tweets per minute after the question about immigration. An audience member asked Mitt Romney what he planned to do about the undocumented immigrants who are living and working in the United States. Romney explained that he won’t grant amnesty and how he wouldn’t put in “magnets” that attract “people coming here illegally,” echoing the self-deportation immigration policy he laid out during the GOP primary.
