Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was the talk of the summer and finished strong. Twitter analytics demonstrate just how much the billionaire has dominated the conversation on the social network, propelled by his appearance in the Fox News debate and his resulting feud with host Megyn Kelly.

Between Aug. 10 and Sept. 9, Trump was mentioned on Twitter more than 1.5 million times, according to data from Topsy. To put that in perspective, it's almost three times the number of mentions Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton had. For each candidate, those numbers include all @ mentions, positive and negative, but it's safe to say that each one of them has a healthy mix of both.
