Last night, the annual Eurovision Song Contest took place in Denmark's capital, Copenhagen. But you knew that already of course - as one Twitter user observed, attempting to discuss anything other than Eurovision online last night was "pissing into the wind."

The UK's entrant, Molly, put up an admirable fight with her surprisingly not-awful 'Children Of The Universe', but it was Austria's entry Conchita Wurst who won the competition... as well, it would seem, as the heart of Twitter.

Speaking backstage after her win, Wurst said: ""This night is dedicated to everyone who believes in a future of peace and freedom. You know who you are - we are unity and we are unstoppable."
