Twitter Rob Ford Crack Video

Twitter reaction to the Rob Ford video revelations

When Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair revealed that his force was in possession of a video of Rob Ford that was "consistent with what was reported in the media," Twitter was immediately ablaze with reaction to the latest development in what has been a long lasting controversy. While calls for the mayor's resignation were swift, a great deal of tweets merely expressed excitement and satisfaction at the confirmation that the notorious video actually exists, something the mayor has repeatedly denied.

Far from quelling the controversy, a statement from Ford earlier this afternoon that he has no intention to resign should mean that the media firestorm and public questioning continues until he addresses the allegations head on. Here's a sample of how Twitter reacted to today's developments.
