Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney (L) and U.S. President Barack Obama talk to each other during a town hall style debate at Hofstra University October 16, 2012 in Hempstead, New York.
Tuesday night's presidential debate was more contentious than round one, with Barack Obama and Mitt Romney both hitting hard at their opponent. Also hitting hard? Twitter commenters.
Along with the usual Twitter jokes, according to social media security firm Impermium, three topics made social media users lose it. (The following tweets have been censored for your perusal.)

Holy s--- tonight's drinking game word: economy! #debates— Beth(@mshollywood1978) October 17, 2012
Very vague answers so far. "We need to improve the economy and grow jobs". No s---. #debates— Rachael Nichol (@RachaelNichol) October 17, 2012
I'm more interested in some social issues. We covered the s--- out of taxes last time. #debates— daddyfiles (@DaddyFiles) October 17, 2012
Impermium data also says that comments slurring Obama exceeded those slurring Romney by five times.
