Want to know what is keeping Twittterati busy on Monday morning? It's the elections in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Puducherry, currently underway in these two states and the union territory respectively.

As the voters waited patiently in the long queues to cast their votes, Twittterati decided to talk about elections. Thus most of the trends on the micro-blogging site were about elections. Some of the trends devoted to elections are #TNVotes, #KeralaVotes, #TN100Percent, #TNElection2016, #TamilNaduElection, #IvotesTN, #TamilNaduPolls and #Kerala2016, to name a few.

It is rare to see so many Twitter trends dedicated just to elections and voting in a single day. This shows how important are these elections as major parties like BJP, Congress, AIADMK, DMK, UDF and LDF, to name a few, aspire to form governments in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Puducherry.

Here we bring you few tweets:

"Everyone should vote, that is a duty: #Thalaivar #Rajinikanth #TNVotes #TNElection2016 #TN100Percent #Tamil," tweeted Rajinikanth Fans (@RajiniFC).

"#TN100Percent Voting initiative is off to a good start.. For the 1st 2 hrs (7 am to 9 am) 18.3% of Total Votes are polled so far..," tweeted Ramesh (@rameshlaus).

"#KeralaVotes VS considers d rains as a good omen 2 usher in d much-needed change -read LDF- is dat d Leftist take on omens? @thenewsminute," tweeted chintha (@chinthaspeak).

"Rahul Gandhi says Jayalalitha stays behind closed doors. As if his ally Karunanidhi goes jogging at Marina everyday #TNElection2016," tweeted Madhavan Narayanan (@madversity).

Twitter

Right from posting pictures of film stars casting their votes to selfies of inked fingers, the micro-blogging site is full of images giving a clear-picture of excitement generated during any elections. Because of Twitter feeds, we know why actor Rajnikanth is not just a fine artist, but a responsible citizen too, as he was one of the first few to vote in Chennai. Similarly, in spite of heavy downpour in various parts of Kerala, voters are coming out in considerable numbers to vote.
