Oscars 2017: Best Social Media Moments

The social media platform has since become home to an endless stream of smart, (sometimes) scathing and all too sarcastic commentary that now accompany every major event, and the 89th Academy Awards are no different.
Below is a roundup of the best tweets that take aim at everything from (yet another) Hidden Fences mishap, to Hailee Steinfeld trying to swipe an award.
