It's the 4th of July. A day for Americans to celebrate their country's independence from the British Empire with fireworks, food and flag waving.
Europe has to wait just a few hours for the US to wake up, then we can all party together.
In true internet style, Twitter couldn't wait to kick off the celebrations, even if most of the US was still in bed.
As the clock struck midnight in the US, some night-owls finally began to join in, sharing messages of freedom and close calls with fireworks.
Now we're just waiting for the rest of America to wake up so we can send 4th of July celebrations into overdrive.
