The Margin: #NeverWarren is suddenly trending on Twitter, and people are having flashbacks to the 2016 presidential election

A trending topic on social-media sites Wednesday was raising fresh questions about the integrity of those platforms and their capacity to foment antipathy, or even disrupt democracy, rather than foster genuine political discourse ahead of the 2020 presidential election.

The hashtag #NeverWarren has been the most popular topic on Twitter TWTR, +1.25% following Tuesday’s closely watched Democratic debate in Iowa, the last such event prior to that state’s caucuses on Feb. 3, and it isn’t entirely clear why.

The trend emerged after the six-person debate’s conclusion, at which point Warren was seen approaching Sanders, who reaches forward for a handshake but is apparently snubbed by Warren. The two have described themselves as longtime friends.

Check out the YouTube footage of the encounter below via CBS News — it occurs at about the 11-second mark:
