36 Responses To Hillary Clinton's CNN Interview That Don't Hold Back

Sometimes, keeping mum only makes the public want to hear what you have to save even more. That might have been Hillary Clinton's strategy before her first national interview. After remaining tight-lipped to reporters throughout her campaign, the former secretary of state finally broke her silence to appear on CNN's "The Situation Room" with Senior Political Correspondent Brianna Keilar. The interview aired at 5 p.m. EDT and will also appear on Anderson Cooper 360 at 8 p.m. EDT. But if you missed the first round, Twitter is already responding to Clinton's best moments.

This interview has been a long time coming. Although she launched some social media accounts in April, Clinton has only accepted questions from a handful of journalists, and the only publications that have gotten full interviews from her were local news outlets in early voting states such as New Hampshire and Iowa, CNN says. Clinton received scrutiny for an incident in which her staff allegedly kicked a pool reporter out of her event for the day and another in which journalists were kept away with a rope.

However, Clinton is giving at least one journalist the needed access to gain the public's trust. Trust ended up being a major theme for the interview, along with immigration and her Republican competitors. Twitter users were happy to respond to the most important quotes and moments from the show, whether happily or not. Here are some of the Tweets on the interview:
