#TwitterBlackout is how people are protesting the election on Twitter
To our credit as a nation, this will be yet another peaceful transition of power. But that doesn't mean that those who are opposed to Donald Trump have changed their minds. Instead, a growing number of them are taking to Twitter to protest peacefully, via a movement called #TwitterBlackout.
They are changing their profile pictures to a blank black square. Some of them are also tweeting hopeful messages of support to the people that feel particularly vulnerable now that Trump, whose campaign was marked by divisive rhetoric, has won the White House.
While this won't change the outcome of the election, the protest seems particularly apt. This has been called the Twitter election as everyone has taken to the social media site to share opinions, make statements, and fire insults and come-backs - especially the candidates themselves.
