The back and forth on Wall Street between Sanders and Clinton was the most-tweeted moment during the debate. 

Sanders repeatedly hammered Clinton for her ties to the financial industry. 

“I don’t take money from big banks,” Sanders said, accusing Clinton of accepting $600,000 from Goldman Sachs in one year. “I don’t get personal speaking fees from Goldman Sachs.” 

But it was when Sanders gave Clinton serious side-eye over claims of disloyalty to Obama that Twitter attention truly peaked.
