The much-hyped US presidential elections are finally over, and I for one am relieved. I was getting sick and tired of watching Hillary and Trump’s faces pasted all over social media, the TV, in the papers — everywhere I looked!

Both Instagram and Twitter were on fire today — people just couldn’t get over the fact that Trump actually won! To us outsiders, it seems surprising, given that it was the American people who themselves voted for him. Lady Gaga even staged a protest against the president elect outside Trump Tower.

Twitter was flooded with tweets from all over. Some were celebrating, but many were in shock. Not surprisingly, Trump was the most trending hashtag yesterday.

What started as a joke is now reality…
