Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton live-tweeted and text messaged her reactions to the third Republican presidential debate. The former secretary of state made jabs at the 10 Republican candidates while they discussed policy and criticized her record.

Clinton seems to have taken a page out of Republican candidate Donald Trump's playbook, who live-tweeted during the Democratic debate on Oct. 13. The business mogul gave his opinion throughout the CNN-moderated debate, saying that “people are going to turn it on for a couple of minutes and then fall asleep,” according to Politico.

Clinton returned the favor by giving her take on the CNBC-moderated Republican debate from her Twitter account and through texting her supporters. She began by attacking the GOP candidates for their lack of discussion on women’s rights, The Huffington Post reports.

In the past two Republican debates, no one said a word about equal pay. Maybe the third time's the charm? #GOPdebate

While the Republican candidates discussed immigration, Clinton countered with her own stance.

Comprehensive immigration reform will strengthen families, our economy, and our country. #CNBCGOPDebate

She then followed up the tweet with the same statement written in Spanish.

Clinton was a hot topic among the Republican candidates, who each took turns to criticize the former secretary of state, NBC News reports.

“Donald Trump would be a better president every day of the week and twice on Sunday rather than Hillary," former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee said.

Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina said that in a general election, “I am Hillary Clinton’s worst nightmare.”

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie claimed that if he is nominated, Clinton “wouldn’t get within 10 miles of the White House.”

Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida asserted that he is running, “because there is no way we can elect Hillary Clinton to continue the policies of Barack Obama."

While the Republican field was busy slamming her throughout the debate, Clinton specifically singled out retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson during her text message commentary, according to ABC News.

The former secretary of state continued to hit the Republican candidates on issues such as LGBT discrimination, gun control and climate change.

While Clinton was getting her message out on social media during the debate, her campaign released attack ads against the Republican field in the primary states of Iowa and New Hampshire.
