As votes pour in from across the nation, the election appears to be narrowing drastically, causing concerned citizens everywhere to chew their fingernails off in miserable anxiety and sway back and forth, chanting “It’ll be OK” (at least that’s what I’m doing).

Despite early predictions of a win for Hillary Clinton, current results show a very tight race. As of this moment, The New York Times shows Ohio, Florida, New Hampshire, and Michigan all leaning red, and though some of those results are based on small percentages of the vote, it’s nevertheless worrying (and by “worrying,” I mean, “utterly panic inducing”) to see how predictions, and election maps, have changed in only a few hours.
Of course, the thing to do when one sees the apocalypse approaching is run headlong to Twitter (I’m only kind of joking), so people have been feeling their feelings on the social media platform has the maps have slowly evolved.
