1. #fourmoreyears
Even before the results were in, #fourmoreyears had been trending worldwide. If the election was held on Twitter, Obama would have won, no doubt about it and we definitely wouldn’t have had to wait so long for the governor to concede.

2. #Halo4

While the nation eagerly waited to find out who the next president of the United States was, gamers all over the world tweeted about Halo4. It was good to see something other than Obama and Romney jokes all over my timeline no matter how funny some of them were.

3. #HarrisonFord

I know what you’re thinking: “why was Harrison Ford trending?” Truth is, I really don’t know. Some tweeted about his possible appearance in the new Star Wars movie as Hans Solo. Others made hilarious Indiana Jones jokes.

4. #whenIfirstmet

People relive and share some of the moments they remember when first meeting someone. They say first impressions are everything, but the way people described some of their first encounters I’m assuming they’ve had to rely on a second one.

5. #ImSickOf

I’mSickOf this trending topic. Every time I check the trending topics, this one’s somewhere at the top of the list. There’s millions of people on Twitter and no one can come up with a more creative topic? I guess I’ll have to do it. How about #youknowwhatgrindsmygears?
