As election news unfolded last night, Twitter exploded with information. Over 31 million Tweets were sent about last night’s election, with a peak of 327,452 per minute. President Barack Obama took to the platform as soon as the news was announced to thank his supporters. World leaders everywhere followed suit and offered their congratulations.

Joking about the speed of Twitter feeds while a record breaking number of election Tweets were sent, Buzzfeed Tech Editor John Herrman suggested using the hashtag #electiondaysecrets for sharing all manner of deep, dark personal secrets while Twitter scrolled quickly on with election news.

Several people jumped on the hashtag and below are some of the most random, funniest, darkest, most bizarre, most disturbing thoughts Twitter shared when everyone was distracted by the election.
