Some rushed to praise Donald... no surprises who was among the first in line:
I hand over the mantle to @RealDonaldTrump! Many congratulations. You have fought a brave campaign. https://t.co/txD3RFMQ2l — Nigel Farage (@Nigel Farage)
Others stifled muted dis-May (apologies).
There's also a trending suggestion to Make America Great Britain Again: people are calling for the Queen to revoke US independence and 'Take Back Control' of this madness.
And among the white noise, there emerges one beautifully concise hashtag:
#RIPAmerica https://t.co/mrOXouPIUS — Julie (@Julie)
