We monitored the event on Twitter and collected 21,923 tweets from 8,600 users. Based on this we compiled the following lists of popular tweets. Ranking was based on the number of users who shared the content on Twitter, and divided between media, links and mentions (tweets without links/media).

Disclaimer: Please remember that the tweets in this list may be misinformation, whether deliberate or unintentional.
