As expected, social media erupted Saturday night when George Zimmerman was found not guilty on Saturday of all charges in the shooting of Trayvon Martin.
The reactions that poured in from around the country ranged from agreement with the verdict to outrage. A number of Twitter users also expressed sympathy for Martin's family.
The entire trial was widely discussed and tracked on social media. Thousands tweeted and posted on Facebook with hashtags such as #Zimmerman and #StandWithTrayvon.
Commentary and speculation swirled in the days leading up to the verdict. In a symbolic move, Martin's supporters blacked out Twitter and Facebook profile photos and circulated the #Blackout4Trayvon hashtag.
