On Wednesday, two rulings on same-sex marriage by the U.S. Supreme Court made history.

After it was announced that SCOTUS struck down a provision of the Defense of Marriage Act and let stand earlier rulings that California's Proposition 8 was unconstitutional, Twitter erupted (mostly with joy).

Topics ranging from "Loveislove" and "marriageequality" to "Bible" trended online as celebrities, comedians and pundits reacted to the news via the social network.

But it was the positive reactions to the news that gained the most traction.

Below, check out the top 10 Tweets.
