LOS ANGELES — A 4.4-magnitude earthquake shook the Los Angeles area on Monday morning, jolting some people awake just before sunrise.
The quake was centered about 6 miles north-northwest of Westwood and about 15 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles.
You probably heard the news about the quake via social media (unless you were watching KTLA).
Here’s the best Twitter reactions to the Los Angeles earthquake, now dubbed the Shamrock Shake of 2014.

If your favorite LA YouTuber didn't tweet about the #earthquake, I think it's safe to assume they're dead, or even worse, don't have wifi.

Portia and I woke up and all of the furniture was in a different place. Then we remembered we moved. #earthquake
