The news today that the United Kingdom has voted in favor of leaving the European Union shook the world market, Europe’s political foundation and the more than 200,000 Texans who support the state’s secession from the United States. Using the hashtag #Texit, the Twitterverse took on Texas secession.

Some Twitter users believe the Brexit is the inspirational push the Texit movement has been waiting for.

Others remain unsure, or support the secession conditionally (namely, a Trump presidency).

Still others are disappointed to see even the proposal of secession.

Not everyone, however, is distraught at the idea of a Texas-less U.S.

For others, a Texit is nothing more than an “lol.” Some users weren’t afraid to blow the dust off memories of secession past, either.

Lastly, at least one would-be-supporter took issue with just what a Texit would mean.

Read a more detailed breakdown of the similarities between the two movements here.
