How did the social media world react to the #RoyalWedding?

Did you get involved with the Royal Wedding? I saw a lot of people who had avowed that they weren’t going to get involved, vigorously tweeting & Facebooking about the event, and I watched much more of it than I anticipated, and went to a garden party in the afternoon!
