Celebrity Twittersphere Reacts to Obama’s Re-Election

Barack Obama has been re-elected and will serve four more years as the United States President. Following a very expensive campaign, Obama, 51, beat out Republican Mitt Romney on Nov. 6, 2012, clinching the majority of the Electoral College votes with victories in states like Ohio, Pennsylvania, Iowa, and Virginia.

On the eve of the election, the announcement of President Obama’s likely re-election was celebrated by many famous celebrities on the social media site, Twitter. The entertainment world historically leans to the left, which was reflected by the Twittersphere. Most celebrities congratulated Obama, but there were a few who disagreed with the results of the election. Following are a few samples of the Twitter feed following the announcement.
