Twitter's Merriam-Webster's Twitter account reported on Sunday night that the term "fascism" was the top search term on its website on Sunday.
According to the website-dictionary, there were searches for the terms: "misogyny", "fanatic", "xenophobic", "racism" and "xenophobia" after Tuesday's US election.

I wonder why.
In addition, it seems that searches for the term "fascism" saw a sharp increase in Google Trends on the day that Donald Trump was named elected president.
I'm not sure what this all means, but it's definitely something you should think about. Very.
