The night in tweets: the 2013 Eat Out DStv Food Network Restaurant Awards

Tweeting guests were encouraged to use the #eatoutawards hash tag, which trended both on Sunday night and Monday morning. Our timeline was – and still is – flooded with pages and pages of excitement, suspense, compliments and congratulations as guests and winning restaurants share the news with the world. If you missed out on all the action, we give you the evening’s proceedings in 30 of our favourite tweets:
