Twitter Toronto election

Twitter reaction to the 2014 Toronto election

There's no better place to hang out during a city-wide event than Twitter. As Toronto landed firmly in PurgaTory way before anyone was able to properly get their drink on, social media erupted with "election tweeting peaking at 2,193 tweets per minute" according to the Star, and CP24 reporting that Tory's name was tweeted 400 times per minute after his win. I'm pretty sure that's nothing on Taylor Swift, but I'm all for Toronto's media frenzy to go back to reasonable, non-celebrity fanfare levels.

From the funny to the somber (everyone managed to get some drinks in them during the speeches) here are some of the most memorable (non-Jian) moments from last night on Twitter. Doug Ford has made no statement thus far on Twitter. It's unclear if Drake voted last night, in advance polls, through song, or at all.
