As the world wakes up to the reality that Donald Trump has been elected US President, the internet has been filled with election-related facts, figures and trends.
Here's a summary of the more interesting information to come out after the surprising win.
1. Voter registration hit an all-time high of 200 million, with voter turn-out 4,7% higher than the previous election in 2012.
2. But 81 million of those who registered did not cast their vote. If they were a candidate, they would have won the election.
3. Trumps first tweet as President elect has been liked by over 300 000 accounts and re-tweeted over 130 000 times - and counting.
Such a beautiful and important evening! The forgotten man and woman will never be forgotten again. We will all come together as never before— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 9, 2016
4. Kanye West also started trending on Twitter, with users suggesting that even he could be elected as president after saying earlier this year that he was gunning for the White House in 2020.
5. The Canadian immigration website crashed today and there was a reported explosion in search traffic on Google for phrases such as "emigrate" and "how to emigrate to Canada".
6. Back in Mzantsi, locals have been waiting patiently for some celebrities, such as Samuel L. Jackson to announce their return to the 'Mother Land' after declaring they would move to South Africa if Trump won the elections.
7. Elsewhere on the continent, Nigerian televangelist TB Joshua is getting major flak for his false prophecy that Clinton would become president.
8. Twitter reported at least 40 million tweets on election day, and one of the more quirky stories or conspiracies is that 'The Simpsons' series predicted Trump's victory and tenure as president back in 2000.
