Reaction: President Obama opposes Prop 8 gay marriage ban
Initial reaction to President Barack Obama's historic move was mostly positive in the social media world. Few were tweeting in opposition to his decision to file a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court opposing California's ban on gay marriage, and some people were elated.

- There were a few who thought the president should stay out of the battle, however, they were few and far between on Twittter.

- There, too, were some interesting photo shopped pictures to mark the occasion.
