Television Wasn’t the Only Place People Watched the Presidential Debate
If you watched the second presidential debate, how did you do it? I used YouTube, and apparently so did a lot of other people. “Sunday night’s debate attracted 63 million TV viewers, a 20 percent decline from the first. But on YouTube, debate content garnered 124 million views, a 40 percent spike compared with the first. And that’s just on YouTube. Millions of people also watched on platforms like Facebook and Twitter, which both live-streamed the event.” I watched it full-screen, and after shifting back from full screen after the debate I noticed that about 766,000 people were still watching the livestream. This was maybe five or six minutes after the debate concluded.
