Most Twitter users were, to say the least, surprised to see Donald Trump become the 45th President of the United States. Many seemed to be less-than-enthusiastic.
Others looked for obscure prophecies of the election’s outcome in cartoons.
Meanwhile Trump’s supporters celebrated their victory.
#Trump victory is a resounding slap on the faces of pseudo-intellectual liberals who think it's their right to tell everyone what to think— The Bad Doctor (@DOCTORATLARGE) 9 ноября 2016 г.
Im amazed #Trump won even with the entire media against him. What does that tell you? No one trust them and the Polls are lies.— Partisangirl (@Partisangirl) 9 ноября 2016 г.
The result of the elections was, to a large extent, determined by voting in 'swing' states. Voters in Florida were especially disappointed.

Another popular joke among the disappointed ones was the promise to immigrate to Canada. Search traffic for "Canada immigration," and "move to Canada" increased in the US, according to Google Trends. Canada's Immigration and Citizenship site was reported to be down for hours.

In the evening, citizens of California took to Twitter to advocate seceding from the US. Hashtags #Calexit and #Caleavefornia were trending.
