Merriam-Webster stole the show on Twitter during Monday night's presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, correcting the candidates' bad word usage.

The Twitter engagement and referral traffic earned for such efforts was impressive. For instance, Merriam-Webster.com site searches for "braggadocious"—a Trump utterance when he meant "braggadocio"—increased by 15,500 percent. His use of "bigly" inspired searches for that term—which shares a web page with "big"—to jump 65,000 percent.
