The State Capture Report was made public following a ruling by Pretoria High Court that it had to be released before 17:00 Wednesday.
President Jacob Zuma withdrew his attempt to halt and postpone the release of the report.
The 355 page document has found damning evidence of state capture.
Numerous topics trended before and after its release on social media.
Some of those included #StateOfCapture, #ThingsThatCanHappenBefore5, Ajay Gupta, #denel and #nenegate.
