Take a bow, Americans.
You tweeted your asses off this Election Day and Night, surpassing a whopping 20 million tweets about the election even before 10:30 p.m. EST — the most tweets ever about an American event. A new record!
And the best is yet to come — with a winner chosen later tonight — meaning this will likely be a record that will stand for … at least a couple weeks anyway.
