With the entire world focused on the spread of the coronavirus, it makes it difficult for people, even those on twitter, to focus on anything else. However, there have been a few headlines that have gained attention.
Let’s start with the major headline– coronavirus. As the virus spreads throughout the world and the United States, the World Health Organization released an update on the virus.
The new #coronavirus has killed about 3.4% of confirmed cases globally - making it deadlier than the flu, but still containable.— Al Jazeera English (@AJEnglish) March 4, 2020

While several countries rally to prepare, South Korea had a unique response– declaring war on the virus.

While coronavirus is a constant trend, Tuesday twitter was all about the polls. More specifically, the difficulty people had getting to the polls. Voter inequality has been a debated issue and this past election showed just how difficult it can be for people to cast their vote.
In California, people were advised to stay in line, despite the polls impending close.

You’re allowed to vote as long as you’re in line by 8 p.m.—no matter how long it takes.
In Texas, people waited hours after the closing to ensure they were able to cast their vote.

After casting their vote, twitter users decided to have some fun, describing the election season in four words.
While Bachelor Nation prepares for the final rose ceremony, they were surprised by the announcement of the new Bachelorette, Clare Crawley. She was announced as the newest Bachelorette and twitter was not disappointed at all. People were thrilled to welcome Crawley, a 38 year-old Bachelor alum back to the franchise.
Cannot wait to watch Clare Crawley, a 38-year-old woman, star on #thebachelorette. In past seasons, a star's average age has been 27, with only 2 women in their 30s.— Lisa Bonos (@lisabonos) March 2, 2020
All of the drama and history aside, I’m excited to have a 38 year old Bachelorette... We complain about babies on the show all the time. Now, the producers gave us what we want. @BacheloretteABC #TheBachelorette— Kelly Bazzle (@KellyBazzle) March 2, 2020
However, some people were not as thrilled.
Y’all always be making decisions like you WANT NO ONE to watch this show... pic.twitter.com/JeRBq5tRiw— Jenna (@TheJBesus) March 2, 2020
Sadly, it pains me to leave you with this last announcement. Judge Judy has announced that after 25 seasons, her show will be coming to an end.
