We don't know about the result (despite what the current predictions would have us believe), but we predict it's going to be a long morning.

As much as we love the BBC, ITV and Channel 4, we've got our eyes glued to Twitter, and for good reason – more people tweeted about the Election than the Royal Baby, sorry K-Middy. 

No time delays, these are our favourite #GE2015 tweets of the night so far...
