Did Hillary Clinton reveal classified information at Wednesday's presidential debate? That's the question some are now asking.

Users on social media took to Twitter shortly after Clinton might have provided one too many details about the United States' nuclear response time.

"The bottom line on nuclear weapons is that when the president gives the order it must be followed. There's about four minutes between the order being given and the people responsible for launching nuclear weapons to do so," Clinton said at the final presidential debate in Las Vegas.

Further, a tweet sent from Clinton's account mentioned how long it "can take" for the U.S. to respond with its nuclear arsenal.

CNN's Barbara Starr reported on air Thursday that when asked if the information Clinton revealed at the debate is classified a spokesman for the military replied that it does not discuss operational timelines.
