Along with the candidates themselves, Kitchen Aid and Big Bird drew attention, the former for a mistakenly published tweet, the latter for Romney's threat to end PBS funding.

During the debate, Mitt Romney had 11% more Facebook mentions, but overall Obama was mentioned 500,000 more times over the course of Wednesday.
