People all over the United States spent election night on Nov. 3 watching nervously as the vote counts roll in. As some states went from red to blue and vice-versa, results became even more nerve-wracking. One of the states voters paid special attention to was Florida, and these tweets about Florida on election night 2020 will give you so much anxiety (if you didn't have enough already).
As Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden faced off for office against President Donald Trump, the numbers were still unclear as of Tuesday night at 8:30 p.m. ET. If the Florida majority vote came in for Biden, a Democratic win in the battleground state would greatly affect the outcome of the 2020 election. In the 2016 election, Trump won Florida's vote by 1.2% against Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
Twitter users were reacting to the close shift as Florida's tallies rolled in. Early in the night, the majority vote kept switching between Biden and Trump consistently, and for a lot of people, it was really tough to watch.
Most Twitter users took to the social media platform to express their anxiety. The outcome in the Florida race would sway the outcome of the presidential election one way or another.

After a few agonizing hours of back and forth, it happened. Shortly after 12:30 a.m. ET on Nov. 4, the Associated Press called Florida for Trump, giving him the prize of the state's 29 electoral votes. On Twitter, the reactions were... a lot.
The results of the 2020 election will likely be inconclusive on Nov. 3 due to extended mail-in ballot deadlines. It might be a few days until the results of the election are official, so basically — don't hold your breath, everyone.
