This Is Why Everyone's Twitter Photos Are Turning Black
You may have noticed that a lot of your followers on Twitter have changed their profile pictures to a plain black box.
People are also posting these boxes on Instagram - and the reason is pretty dark.
The world has turned black for the new hashtags #Blackout and #TwitterBlackout, which were created following the last night's election result.
The hashtags are acting as symbols for those who supported Hillary Clinton and who are enraged about America's new leader.
Katy Perry has even joined the cause.
There has been a massive reaction to the Presidential election and this seems to be only the first of many protests against the new President of the United States.
