In death, as less-so in life, Nelson Mandela has been dominating Twitter.
We then take in the MPs' pay rise, Beyonce's surprise album, TIME magazine's person of the year (aka the Pope), England's World Cup draw, London's fog - and more. Including, of course, tweets about the forthcoming festival known as Christmas.

The only sort of blue Christmas we're after is an Elvis one.
Have a great weekend, folks!
