Earlier today, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were sworn in as the 46th President and Vice President of the U.S respectively.

For most of us, the inauguration was a virtual affair and a lot of chatter went viral on social media. Here are some of the best and funniest tweets.

Really like “my whole soul is in it” as a line. It suits Biden’s sentimentality but it’s also such a good line about committing to getting better.

Just as the American Founding Fathers intended, the transfer of the @POTUS Twitter account is complete

Lots of fights still to be had, but it is an unmixed blessing that the president of the United States isn’t a malevolent buffoon.

I’m so glad Biden is going directly at the politicians who tolerated and repeated the lies. That is the heart of the problem and has to change.

“Every disagreement doesn’t have to be a cause for total war” – President Biden.

Refreshing to hear a President who clearly hasn’t spent much time on Twitter.

My favorite part about today is the representation on stage. We have an Asian American Vice President.

My second favorite part about today is the puffy coat representation.

The Obama’s everyone!

When I see @MichelleObama, I see myself.

From the Southside of Chicago to the White House.

— Derek Willis (@derekwillis) January 20, 2021

“In my poem, I’m not going to in any way gloss over what we’ve seen over the past few weeks … what I really aspire to do in the poem is to be able to use my words to envision a way in which our country can still come together and can still heal.”

— Millie Tran (@millie) January 20, 2021

Amanda Gorman, 22 years old. The nations first youth poet laureate. When I spoke to her back in October, she joked that she’s a 60 year old woman in a 16 year old body.

Wise. She is indeed wise.

— EricaJoy (@EricaJoy) January 20, 2021

“Gorman began the process, as she always does, with research. She took inspiration from the speeches of American leaders who tried to bring citizens together during times of intense division, including Abraham Lincoln and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr”

Amanda Gorman (@TheAmandaGorman) has already declared for president.

Chris Wallace on Fox News just now: “I thought this was the best inaugural address I ever heard.”

— Justin Baragona (@justinbaragona) January 20, 2021

Juan Williams choked back tears on Fox News talking about Kamala Harris:

“It’s visceral..I am the son of a Black mother. You think about American history… The idea that a Black woman would assume such power in this moment as an national leader is truly inspiring.”

— Michael M. Grynbaum (@grynbaum) January 20, 2021

Fox News’s Chris Wallace acknowledges what Biden said about embracing truth. “It was a call to all of us .. in TV, broadcast to social media… an understanding that we have to hear from facts and from the truth.”

There are a lotta lines to meditate on from today. I’m starting with, “(We’ve learned that) quiet isn’t always peace.”

Here’s the full poem from Amanda Gorman, who is the youngest poet to ever read at an inauguration.

“Somehow we’ve weathered and witnessed a nation that isn’t broken, but simply unfinished.”

— BuzzFeed News (@BuzzFeedNews) January 20, 2021

“There is always light if we are brave enough to see it. If only we are brave enough to be it.”

Amanda Gorman, 22, has become the youngest poet ever to perform at an inauguration. She used to have a speech impediment as a child like the president.

— Channel 4 News (@Channel4News) January 20, 2021

“There are lies. Lies told for power and profit.”

This seems to be a theme of this speech. A call for a shared set of facts in the public square.

— Somini Sengupta🥭 (@SominiSengupta) January 20, 2021

What a wild two weeks for our country but especially for people like Capitol Police Officer Eugene Goodman.

On Jan 6, he put his life on the line when he lured insurrectionists away from Senators and staff.

Two weeks later, he’s escorting VPE Kamala Harris into the US Capitol

— Yashar Ali 🐘 (@yashar) January 20, 2021

The “delayed/defeated” words from @TheAmandaGorman today beautifully evoked King for me:

“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.”

— Kelsey Proud (@KelseyProud) January 20, 2021

I can’t believe Mike Pence has seen Gaga live and I haven’t

— Drew Garland (@drew_garland) January 20, 2021

I’m incredibly thankful and relieved democracy prevailed. I think it’s also wise to remember how close it was to complete political disaster, by way of a massacre at congress and a coup. American democracy got lucky to get here: and it’s time to get real now; not just lucky.
