So a lot went down at the weekend. Friday was the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States, which, in itself, will go down as one of the most controversial political moments in modern day history. On Saturday we saw over 5 million people around the globe march for women’s equal rights, a march that was sparked from an audio recording of Mr. Trump being crude and boasting about grabbing women’s pussy’s.
Our Social feeds went wild and we were overloaded with memes, gifs, protest boards, videos, articles and all the rest.
Heres some of the best:

Six years into his presidency, Barack Obama is finally on Twitter as @POTUS.
According to Guinness World Records, Obama who signed up for his own Twitter account on the 18th of May, racked up 1 million followers in under 5 hours.
As you might already know, this isn’t the first time Obama has used Twitter. When he’s tweeted in the past, the president did so under The White House’s handle (@WhiteHouse). But The White House account, as well as the @BarackObama account, are managed by staffers. Tweets from @POTUS, meanwhile, will come exclusively from the president, the White House promised. Truth or lie? We’ll never know.
The White House said in a blog post that the new account “will serve as a new way for President Obama to engage directly with the American people, with tweets coming exclusively from him. President Obama is committed to making his Administration the most open and participatory in history, and will give Americans a new venue to engage on the issues that matter most to them.”
Talking about “issues that matters” Bill Clinton wondered if the new username stays with the office of President:
Hopefully, the President is successful in continuing to engage Twitter users. After all, social media is how information spreads, these days.
