Celebrities from both sides of the aisle agreed on one thing this election: Twitter was their site of choice to express their political beliefs, enthusiasm for the election and excitement or disappointment about the results. Donald Trump started out a long tirade of tweets with a call for revolution, but that particular tweet was deleted. He continued his rant with quotes from George Washington and slams on the electoral college system. But other reactions were more supportive of the President, from Andy Cohen’s “mazel” to the “most retweeted tweet ever” from Obama himself, below a selection of tweets after the networks announced the re-election of President Obama.

Classy concession speech by Mitt Romney. Gave the speech alone, took high road, no excuses, and the country can move on.
