We followed how the election played out on social media with periodic updates
about what is being said on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other social
Here's what caught our eye:
Obama victory speech draws praise, some criticism on Twitter.
It was late, but Kansas Citians stayed up late to hear Obama's victory speech. Some believed it was among his best, giving him kudos when he talked about his wife. Still others pointed out that Obama doesn't have a plan for the future of the country.
Here's what people were saying in the wee hours of the morning on Twitter.
@myfriendstef: Holy crap! I didn't think I'd be all stirred up at 1am, but damn! That was a great speech President Obama!
@__amanderr: This is why I like Obama. "It's not about your own campaign party it's about America and how we can fix the issues that matter."
@aliciard: We all have to have faith and give potus #Obama opportunity to bring our American family together!
@j_hawkprincess: Obama is such a smooth talker
@Xspos: Everytime Obama mention Romney the place gets quiet , Hahahahahahaha
@nateG_23: Even though Obama won, he clearly does not have a plan for the future of our country.
@alli_girl_kc: the only thing i hope for from this election is that obama realizes that the country is not happy and hopefully with work with both parties
@cookseyftw: I can't sleep. Obama won again, & my cast comes off tomorrow. It's like Christmas.
@gabriellmarie: oh the words President Obama said about Michelle :) awwww
@BrooklynJayhawk: Respect to Obama for shouting out his girl like that. #gentleman
@markvanbaale: High regards for Obama for recognizing and appreciating his wife and kids for the pillar of support they are to him.
@Glith: Obama is making one heck of a speech tonight. #election2012
@laurenkuehl: 5 years ago my mom & I went campaigning for Obama, Im proud to say he was the 1st & 2nd person I voted for & was president for 8 years!
@JeneeinKC: Both speeches tonight were wonderful. I'm glad Obama isn't shying away from the division. We must come together. Forward, folks
@DreamChaserCEO: Preach Obama !!!!!!!!!
Ã}@smithtara: I cannot believe Obama is still talking. It's freaking 1am and the campaign is won. You can stop talking about it now.
@Combsysaid: Put everything aside and just listen to what Obama is saying. Can you honestly not relate to what he is saying?
@aaronlindberg: I am willing to bet Obama got an A+ in his public speaking classes. #motivation
@Just_Inthesky: Don't tell me I missed Obama speech ... Iv been waiting up for this all night
@amritsidhu24: Still wanted #Romney to win, but got respect for #Obama
@eric_wreath: If almost the entire world thinks Obama should be president, then I think we made a pretty damn good choice.
@JeffBowen07: I bet Obama got 100% on all his speeches in college
@wjoewatson: Both Romney and Obama look utterly wiped out in their speeches tonight. Why anyone would run for public office is beyond me.
@blah89blah: I'm glad Obama has won...but I can't listen to anymore speeches from anybody right now...
