In two landmark decisions, SCOTUS strikes down DOMA and Prop 8, paving the way towards marriage equality. Here's what the Twitterverse had to say.
Updated: 10:45 a.m.
[6:00 a.m. PT] - People take to Twitter early to discuss possible outcomes and media coverage
@klingerlevi36 - I'm hoping the Supreme Court does the right thing today, and by right I mean left.
@MattVas - The Day of Awful Headlines—> Playbook: “GAY DAY AT SUPREME COURT.” Drudge: “GAY OR NAY?”
