Here's how the candidates and Twitter responded to Monday's debate


(UPDATE 9:29 a.m. EST Tuesday)  Trump scored the most retweeted tweet of the debate, according to Twitter's @gov handle.

Here's the winner.

(UPDATE 9:13 a.m. EST Tuesday) Clinton harshly criticized Trump for calling a former Miss Universe pageant winner "Miss Piggy" and "Miss Housekeeping." Trump defended his comments on "Fox and Friends" Tuesday morning, saying "she gained a massive amount of weight and it was a real problem."

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton's Twitter resurrected her most memorable debate moments. 

The GIF of her response to Trump praising his temperament quickly took off.

Other tweets mostly hearkened to points she'd brought up on the campaign trail before.

Clinton only shared one poll result, but did retweet favorable articles. 

She also got a ringing endorsement from Vice President Joe Biden.

But #TrumpWon ended up trending on Twitter Tuesday morning. 

Some users were using the hashtag ironically.
