From the candidates themselves to political comedians, here are some Twitter feeds you may want to follow while watching the returns come in on Election Night.

NAPLES, Fla. - Police say a man in Southwest Florida was arrested after he bragged about punching his neighbor on Twitter.

According to an arrest report, Brandon Michael Perry of Naples and a neighbor got into an argument about Perry's sister on Oct. 25. The neighbor told police that Perry punched him in the face, knocking him off his bicycle later that day.

The Naples Daily News reports detectives looked at Perry's Twitter account, where he describes himself as a "pill-popping animal." He posted several tweets about his neighbor, including one where he apparently wrote that he was going to "knock" his neighbor out that day.

Police say that hours later Perry tweeted that he was thinking of turning himself in.
Perry was arrested this week on a battery charge. Records didn't list an attorney.
