#YesBecause hashtag takes twitter by storm as one million sign indy declaration
Yesterday the Scottish independence referendum took over twitter when ordinary people began tweeting messages containing their reasons for supporting a Yes vote in September's historic ballot.
However few were prepared for the volume of tweets that saw the hashtag #YesBecause dominate twitter, becoming one of the most trended tags in the world.
Messages from tens of thousands of people shot #YesBecause to the top of the twitter trending league across the UK.

The #YesBecause phenomenon has also led to an inspirational video from the fledgling film company Independence Live.
