'Four more years'

The most popular Tweet in history: 200,000 re-tweets in fifteen minutes as Barack Obama says 'Four more years'. The previous most popular tweet was by Canadian teen pop star Justin Bieber. We also look at delays and techie breakdowns during voting. Can the same president build a new landscape, asks The Washington Post. That's the focus for this US election press review for Wednesday 7th November, 2012.

The Barack Obama victory tweet keeps it brief: 'Four more years'. And shows a photo of the re-elected US President hugging his wife.

The website Buzzfeed reports that is the most popular Tweet of all time.

The Los Angeles Times looks at technical problems and delays that came up during voting.

Florida's Sun-Sentinel reports that the state is in limbo.

The New York Times editorial says Obama's win is a repudiation of Trickle Down Reaganomics.

And The Washington Post is asking: 'Can the same president build a new landscape?'
