Democratic presidential candidate tweeted Saturday that on Friday traffic to his campaign website reached an all-time high.
His announcement followed his participation in the first Democratic debate on Thursday night, during which he only spoke for two minutes and 50 seconds, according to a Hill analysis.
“Wow website traffic at yang2020.com hit an all-time high yesterday!” the former tech executive tweeted Saturday. “Guess even my limited airtime generated some high-level interest.”

The Hill has reached out to Yang’s campaign for additional comment.
Yang has said that his microphone was off at times during the debate in Miami. The Hill’s analysis found he spoke the least out of any candidate during the two-night event.
Yang was among 20 Democratic presidential hopefuls to make the debate stage this week.
