CNN's Democratic debate: Twitter complains over short time limits, quick questions

Multiple social media members complained that CNN wasn't giving candidates enough time to speak during the Democratic debates.

SALT LAKE CITY — CNN hosted the second round of the Democratic primary debates on Tuesday night, and Twitter wasn't happy with the quick time limits.

Candidates were asked a question and given 60 seconds to respond, and rebuttals and responses were limited to 30 seconds.

The time limits created a round of rapid-fire question and answers. Twitter didn’t love the quick time limits. CNN anchor and debate moderator Jake Tapper was mentioned a few times by social media for speaking too much early on as well since he was keeping track of the time limits.

Here's how Twitter reacted.
