You may have heard the news that Great Britain held a referendum on whether or not to remain a part of the European Union or to leave - and the vote for "Leave" won out, by a significant margin no less. The immediate consequences have been extensive - Great Britain's prime minister, David Cameron, has resigned, the pound has dropped in value, Scotland is threatening independence, and the entire global market has been shaken.
Luckily, we've gathered some tweets that pretty accurately sum up what's going on:
