People on Twitter Are Staging a Blackout to Protest Trump
The Election is finally over, and it’s clear that millions of people are devastated by the result. If you’ve been on any social media platform yet today, you’ll see that it’s really hit the fan (although yesterday Hillary sent the sweetest message to a Facebook group of her supporters). If you want to move to Canada, here’s how to do it. If you need somewhere to look for hope for the future, look no further.
Tons of users are changing their Twitter profile and header photos to the color black to protest our new President-Elect, and using this show of togetherness to pass on messages of love and support to one another.
You all are important. You all have a purpose. You all have rights. #twitterblackout

#twitterblackout isn't about changing the fact that Trump was elected. It's a statement to show the unification of ppl that know it's wrong.

This has been a stressful time for all of us, but just know that no matter who your candidate was, you are loved and you matter.
