1. Donald Trump@realDonaldTrump This could be the future president of the United States, everyone. Although don't expect too many outbursts from the man himself in the next few hours – his team have apparently wrestled the account from him to stop him going off the rails on the last day of the campaign. We're just getting boring "thank you" messages through right now – but this account is still worth keeping an eye on.

2. Hillary Clinton
@HillaryClinton … Or this could be the first woman to be elected as President. The polls are putting her just out in front, but there's still time for the balance to swing in favour of her rival. Of particular importance are any tweets addressed to herself, such as:
This one's for you, Hillary. pic.twitter.com/KtzpIpSziO— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) November 7, 2016
3. Barack Obama@BarackObama The man of the moment is stepping down after eight years in power. You'll want to keep an eye on what he's saying as the results come in, and when will he hand over the @POTUS account? Also, some of his tweets are brilliant.
4. Nate Silver@NateSilver538 The polling guru and founder of FiveThirtyEight.com has come under fire in recent weeks for giving Trump a higher chance of winning than than many other pollsters are predicting. But he did get the outcomes of previous elections correctly, so many people trust him to predict this year's results right. He's been feeling feisty in the last few days…
People don't debate the premises of 538 model (e.g. state errors correlated, undecideds=uncertainty). They just don't like the conclusions.— Nate Silver (@NateSilver538) November 7, 2016
4. Ben Smith@BuzzFeedBen BuzzFeed's editor in chief in the US is worth a follow. His politics team are chasing the latest developments, and he's also one to point out stories from other outlets too.
5. Jon Sopel@BBCJonSopel The Beeb's North America editor has been across the pond reporting the election for us over here. Keep up with the latest updates by following him

6. Briane Fallon@brianefallon Hillary's press secretary. A funny, gif-filled timeline.
It's going to be the most amazing field team ever. And Mexico is going to pay for ithttps://t.co/H5GGRI97gx— Brian Fallon (@brianefallon) November 7, 2016
7. Mike Pence@mike_pence The Indiana governor, and running mate of Donald Trump. Less controversial than his boss.
8. Tim Kaine@timkaine Clinton's running mate, and US senator from Virginia.
9. Ari Fleischer@AriFleischer Former press secretary to George W. Bush. Now tweeting all sorts of comments on the current race for the White House.

If Bush said about an ongoing FBI investigation what Obama said, the press would kill, persecute, attack, defame & ruin him. Doublestandard.— Ari Fleischer (@AriFleischer) November 3, 2016

16. John Santucci@JTSantucci Campaign reporter at ABC News, covering Donald Trump. He's been hitting a lot of rallies…
As the press walks in, Trump says he beat us because his plane is faster. True.— John Santucci (@Santucci) November 7, 2016
17. Piers Morgan@piersmorgan Everyone's favourite TV host is back in the UK now with Good Morning Britain, but previously went out to the US to work. Back in quieter times, Morgan won Trump's Celebrity Apprentice show, and now refers to him as a friend.
One consequence of a #Trump win would be the sheer volume of smug political 'experts' who would then look as stupid as they say he is…— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) November 6, 2016
18. Stephen Colbert@StephenAtHome Late Show host and satirist. For the fun of the campaign.
Poor @realDonaldTrump can't use his own Twitter anymore! NYT calls him 'anxious,' staff calls him liability! Plus he'll never see this! Sad!— Stephen Colbert (@StephenAtHome) November 7, 2016
