Last night's showdown between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton was the "most tweeted debate ever," passing the 10.3 million tweets sent during 2012's first presidential debate. You can't be expected to read millions of tweets, so we've picked some of the best for y'all.

Hillary Clinton faces a lot of double standards as the first female candidate, and Twitter pointed that out:

While it's unfair that so much emphasis is placed on Clinton's looks, some of the outfit jokes were just too good:

Others called out Trump's weak attempts at clapping back at Clinton:

After calling for "law and order," Trump got wrecked:

And these are just great:

In the end though, here's the main takeaway from the debate:
