Waiting for election results to trickle in for hours and hours and hours can be a drag. But one upside is it gives snarky journalists, pundits, and other election watchers time to make a bunch of jokes on Twitter.
Super Tuesday was no exception. From Donald Trump's dominance to Chris Christie's facial expressions, there was plenty to panic and joke about throughout the night.
Here's a roundup of some of Vox's favorite tweets of the night, from the best zingers to the most interesting points.
Of course Donald Trump dominated the Republican primary — and Twitter had a lot of fun with it

media twitter: um... virginia is close? *claps for rubio, tinkerbell style*

But Trump still has small hands, says Twitter

they win a lot of states on super tuesday
Chris Christie introduced Donald Trump. Then Christie's face stole the show.
Is Christie being held hostage by the Trump campaign?— Dan Pfeiffer (@danpfeiffer) March 2, 2016
If you took this video back in time a year and showed it to Chris Christie, he would strangle you.— Josh Barro (@jbarro) March 2, 2016
Marco Rubio's big hope was Virginia. He lost.
Perfect metaphor for this campaign that Rubio was depending on the suburbs of DC to save him, and they didn't.— Josh Barro (@jbarro) March 2, 2016
Republican commentators usually: "DC insider sellouts are hurting America."— Josh Barro (@jbarro) March 2, 2016
Republican commentators tonight: "Save us, Fairfax County!"
Marco Rubio did win Minnesota. But that's it.

Rubio on track to miss delegate threshold in Alabama, Texas and Vermont.— Will Jordan (@williamjordann) March 2, 2016
this rubio speech is amazing. "we are seeing in state after state, [Trump's] numbers going down, our numbers going up"— BuzzFeed Brenny '16 (@deep_beige) March 2, 2016
For Rubio, 3-5-2-2-3-2-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-2-1 is the new 3-2-1. https://t.co/JexaxrPxYZ— Dan Diamond (@ddiamond) March 2, 2016
But if Carson, Kasich, Cruz and Trump all drop out of the race, think of how many votes would break for Rubio— Dave Itzkoff (@ditzkoff) March 2, 2016
By the way, Ted Cruz actually won states — Texas and Oklahoma
Cruz is winning states. Rubio is not (at all!). Cruz has beaten Trump. Rubio has not. Cruz will have more delegates. Obvious case for Cruz.— Ross Douthat (@DouthatNYT) March 2, 2016
When tonight finishes with Cruz way ahead of Rubio, will anyone suggest Marco should stand aside?— Matthew Yglesias (@mattyglesias) March 2, 2016
On the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders gave a very early speech, maybe to avoid giving a much sadder one later on
General rule: if you're giving your election night speech during Wheel of Fortune, you probably haven't had a very good night.— Harry Enten (@ForecasterEnten) March 2, 2016
ESSEX JUNCTION, VT — With Clinton claiming AL, AR, GA, TN, and VA—and Sanders with VT in his column—the Bernie rally here is now 100% empty.— Gabriel Debenedetti (@gdebenedetti) March 2, 2016
