Trump's inauguration breaks live streaming records

At its peak, a record 8.7Tbps of live video was streamed, according to content delivery network Akamai Technologies.

The previous record of 7.5Tbps was set during US election day coverage on 8 November 2016.

The figures reflect the growing popularity of online streaming.

In the US, 31 million people watched Mr Trump's inauguration on television, compared with 38 million who watched Barack Obama becoming president in 2009.

However, video traffic of Mr Obama's inauguration reached a peak of just 1.1Tbps the same year.

How presidents stay fit

The president-elect has referred to the speeches he gave on the campaign trail as a way in which he has stayed active.

"It's a lot of work, you know, when I'm speaking in front of 15,000 to 20,000 people and I'm up there using a lot of motion. I guess in its own way, it's a pretty healthy act," Trump said on "The Dr. Oz Show" in September.

"A lot of times, these rooms are very hot, like saunas, and I guess that's a form of exercise," he said.

Kanye West fans throw support behind rapper's White House bid after Trump victory

In the wake of Wednesday's shock election result, hundreds of fans took to Twitter to call on the hip hop star to make good on his promise to run for office and to pledge their support.

They say that with Republican Donald Trump — a reality television star with no prior experience in office — now headed for the White House, a West presidency might not be as inconceivable as once thought.

"If Trump was able to become president, then for sure Kanye will win in 2020," tweeted Lele Pons.
