Twelve of the Democratic candidates for President faced off last night in the fourth debate of the 2020 cycle, and as always, the Internet had a lot to say. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite tweets here, enjoy! (And if you’re feeling nostalgic, June, July, and September Tweets are here!)
Another fun fact: Women have voted at higher rates than men in every presidential election since 1964. https://t.co/JItLboslfb https://t.co/IxcbnG0z2S

At least this debate passes the Bechdel test.

I even love the fact that the women are mixing it up, offering different policies and parts of the ideological spectrum. No one women’s lane. Just some great candidates.

What Cory just did is so important so don’t miss it.
He said men shouldn’t be allies bc women are our daughters and sisters, it’s because WOMEN ARE PEOPLE #DemDebate

This debate should put aside two outdated notions: “Women aren’t presidential.” They sure sounded presidential to me. And “women are less electable.” None of the women on the stage have ever lost an election. That’s electable. #DemDebate #GetOutTheBias

Every woman has cultivated this tone of voice by year five in the workplace https://t.co/88cYe6dqwX

Every time @KamalaHarris uses female pronouns to talk about the presidency, I get chills.
When I was a little girl, I used to stare at the poster in my classroom. At the time, it only included white men.
I aspired to be First Lady. Now girls aspire to be President. #DemDebate

Yes, it shouldn’t have to be said, but the rumors are true:
Women are people.
In fact, we’re the majority of voters.
And we’ve got some questions. #DemDebate #TIMESUP2020

Wow, a man taking credit for a woman’s work, how original.

Look, Twitter. You can’t have a women’s health question AND a climate change question in the same debate. Otherwise, you won’t have a time for a question on who is your wackiest friend.

And one more thought from the #DemDebate:
We need to fight for big ideas. If we don’t, people of color, women, LGBTQ, the disabled community, and marginalized folks—#PeopleLikeUs—will continue to be left behind. ✊🏾✊🏼✊🏿✊🏽
