Hillary Clinton claimed her moment in history Tuesday night as the first female U.S. presidential nominee of a major political party.
It was a victory, Clinton noted on Twitter, for “every little girl who dreams big.”
Supporters on Twitter predictably erupted in celebration, with Clinton mentioned in 210,000 tweets over a three-hour stretch in the evening, reaching a crescendo of 1,000 tweets a minute around the time she appeared at a Brooklyn rally at 7:36 pm PT. The campaign's hashtag #ImWithHer became the top trend on Twitter, appearing in some 120,000 tweets.
Some within the tech community, which has been somewhat tepid in its support of the former secretary of state's candidacy, seemed swept up in the moment as well. Here are some we spotted:
