How to follow the US Election: Best Twitter, Facebook, Reddit accounts for election results, news & commentary

The whole world is talking about it – the US Election has reached its day of reckoning, when voters across the US head to the polls to cast a vote which will either see Clinton or Trump as President Elect.

The 2016 US election has been fought in cyberspace as much as on the stump. Now that the campaigning has finished, attention turns to the results. CBR offers guides to the key twitter accounts and blog, the biggest online only news streams, the mainstream media online presence and social accounts and the best analytics and data sites.


Must-Follow Twitter Accounts


You have to right? As one of the most contentious US presidential candidates, Donald Trump, no matter your allegiance, should be followed on election night. Although there are rumours that his staffers have blocked him from personally using Twitter, for anyone watching the US election this twitter account must top the list.

Also on CBR: Will Trump win the US Election with Big Data?


As CBR will remain unbiased, if you are going to follow Trump then you have to follow Clinton. Again, no matter where your allegiances may lie, its a must to follow the FLOTUS on Twitter throughout the night.



While many argue that national news in the US is biased towards Clinton or Trump, the BBC politics twitter account may offer more neutral, unbiased tweets throughout the election night. With BBC correspondents on the ground in the US, a well-rounded view of the night as it progresses will hopefully unfold on this account.
