Musicians take to Twitter to celebrate the re-election of Barack Obama as POTUS.

Here’s a piece of news that might have slipped under your radar: Barack Obama has been re-elected as president of the United States.

Given that it’s 2012, people were more likely to tweet their reactions than take to the streets to celebrate, and given that Twitter is the primary platform for most musicians to engage with their audience today, we thought we’d round up some of the tweets that made us smile the most. These range from the jubilant and celebratory to the optimistic and inspiring to the absurd and bewildering.

And it goes without saying, but we’re sure that this is the reason why Romney lost.
