Social media reacts: The Darling v Salmond referendum debate

It was a slow start, with a couple of people tweeting their reluctance to tune in like Ruth Davidson...

...and Better Together campaign director Blair MacDougall.

But the crowd piled in...

...and a passionate debate got underway.

STV encountered a couple of problems...

...to the annoyance of a few viewers.

Those who could watch it witnessed an exciting debate...

...although not everyone was enthralled.

Although it was entertaining - for most people - it's not clear if the debate really settled anything...

...and, inevitability, both sides claimed victory.

But the general consensus seemed to be 'no clear winner'.

Having said that, Rory Bremner named his winner - host Bernard Ponsonby...

...and Paul Waugh named his loser.

Thank God for Twitter.
