The night of the January debate that he missed brought more media attention and more verified twitter accounts that were mentioning Yang than I've seen with any debate in the past. That night, the Dave Chappelle endorsement was formally announced, as well as some activities from the campaign.

IIRC, he had the 2nd most twitter followers and the 4th most mentions on twitter, as well as a leading international hashtag that night.

That was the night the momentum took off for the campaign, particularly in regards to traditional media.
Thatís quite impressive, theyíre a loyal bunch.

I got a text from Pete saying they met their January goal but I havenít found the numbers yet. Pete usually releases on the first day, it may be buried in my email.
