When Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor swore Kamala Harris into office just before noon today, it marked a historical win we've long been waiting for: Harris became the first female, Black, and South Asian vice president of the United States of America.

The triumphal moment couldn't come soon enough. With the past year riddled with destruction and chaos, despair and injustice, today starts a new, bright chapter for American democracy. And this moment isn't just a victory for Vice President Kamala Harris (man, it feels good to finally type that!), but for women, specifically women of color, nationwide. Across the country, we celebrate Vice President Harris's win by wearing pearls, by seizing the streets with pots, pans, and cheers, and by sharing our excitement loud and proud all over the Internet. Here, we've rounded up some some Twitter reactions to the news.

In short, people were PSYCHED.

And for some, there were not even words. Just feelings.

Not even a mispronunciation of the VP's name can bring us down:



Because today is a good day.

Yes, it truly is.
