Hillary Clinton's quick recovery Sunday from a woozy episode at the 9/11 memorial ceremony lit up Twitter with excited speculation the Democratic presidential dispatched a body double.

Conspiracy theorists' comparisons of before-and-after shots taken of Clinton at the solemn ceremony she left early because of being "overheated" – it was revealed hours later she had been diagnosed with pneumonia two days beforehand – and emerging from daughter Chelsea's Manhattan apartment took note of what they saw were not-so-subtle changes in the candidate's nose, hairstyle, hip size and finger measurements.

There were even some efforts to identify the double.

But for the most part, theorists focused on size, and found that it matters. For example, one poster saw something fishy in Clinton's waving index finger:

Another, in her svelte post-episode hips:

And one retweeter got on board with the theory it just didn't look right there was no visible Secret Service contingent:

Not everyone was troubled by the before-and-after pictures.

And others were rather glad there was some fun to be had in #HillarysBodyDouble hunting.

The Blaze points out whether Clinton has used a body double during her presidential campaign is not the only conspiracy theory floating around about her.

According to CNN, conspiracies surrounding her health have dated back to 2012 after she suffered a concussion from passing out from dehydration prior to testifying before Congress on the Benghazi attacks.

At the time, some Republicans suggested Clinton had faked her health scare in order to avoid the testimony.

One person not jumping into the pool is GOP nominee Donald Trump, who wished her well on Monday.
