The Conservatives topped social media on Thursday night as more mentions were recorded for the party than any other during the Question Time special.

It comes as snap polls show David Cameron emerged as the winner of the question and answer session; 44 per cent of people said the Prime Minister performed the best, while 38 per cent favoured Ed Miliband. Nick Clegg was trailing the two prime ministerial hopefuls on 19 per cent.
