Twelve hours of Surrey election tweets

Surrey election 2014 » Twitter posts for 12 hours, from 5:04 pm to 5:07 am on election night

  

I know, crazy, right? I wanted to document the flurry of last-minute pleas, the excitement, the joy, the acceptance and the occasional bitter comment.

Originally I wanted to do the whole day, but that was just too much. I think these twelve hours cover the gamut of emotions from before the polls closed through all the raw emotions as event unfolded. There are almost 450 tweets below, selected from the mayoral candidate's Twitter accounts and users using the #sryelxn14 hashtag.

I don't want to highlight any in particular, but there are some real gems in the feed below.
