Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the US, yesterday. The world is hopeful of better beginnings as the newly-elected government takes charge in the United States of America.
The inauguration address, attended virtually, by the entire world was full of moments to remember. Here’s the best tweets that sum it up.
So many things I like about Joe Biden: his spirit of reconciliation, his humbleness, his respect for diversity, his looking for Guidance of the Almighty, his wisdom, his respect for his adversaries, his humanity and his use of We not I!— Anton Cutajar (@AntonCutajar) January 21, 2021

If you were looking for ~signs~, I can tell you that it started to rain four years ago just as Trump started taking his oath of office and that the sun really came out just a few minutes before Biden took his.— Matt Fuller (@MEPFuller) January 20, 2021
Such a relief to hear a calm and sensible speech.— nxthompson (@nxthompson) January 20, 2021
Also calming because the previous guy can no longer Tweet.

A remarkable poem, beautifully delivered. Shabash America, for recognizing talent early & providing it a platform. So much for us to learn in India! @theAmandaGorman https://t.co/ynFfCz7Vmi— Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) January 21, 2021

Right now, at this very second, millions, literally millions of Americans are headed to the restroom, and whatever they do in there, will be the best it’s been in 1460 days. It’s over. Congrats…and release.— Vir Das (@thevirdas) January 20, 2021
It delights me to think that what feels historical and amazing to us today—a woman sworn in to the vice presidency—will seem normal, obvious, “of course” to Kamala’s grand-nieces as they grow up. And they will be right. pic.twitter.com/1gQOvmNipB— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) January 20, 2021
Amanda Gorman is 23 which I believe is the age I destroyed a microwave by accidentally putting popcorn in and setting the timer for 30 minutes instead of 3 minutes— Rachel Wenitsky (@RachelWenitsky) January 20, 2021
Lots of fights still to be had, but it is an unmixed blessing that the president of the United States isn’t a malevolent buffoon.— Jeet Heer (@HeerJeet) January 20, 2021

There are a lotta lines to meditate on from today. I’m starting with, “(We’ve learned that) quiet isn’t always peace.”— Caitlin Dickerson (@itscaitlinhd) January 20, 2021
I’m incredibly thankful and relieved democracy prevailed. I think it’s also wise to remember how close it was to complete political disaster, by way of a massacre at congress and a coup. American democracy got lucky to get here: and it’s time to get real now; not just lucky.— ❤️ (@umairh) January 20, 2021
He seems like a very happy old man looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see! pic.twitter.com/G8gObLhsz9— Greta Thunberg (@GretaThunberg) January 20, 2021

Really like “my whole soul is in it” as a line. It suits Biden’s sentimentality but it’s also such a good line about committing to getting better.— Heidi N. Moore (@moorehn) January 20, 2021

Twitter is indeed the best place to chronicle these new beginnings.
