As former president Pervez Musharraf ran for his Chak Shahzad residence following an Islamabad High Court judge issuing arrest orders for him, Twitter saw a flurry of activity.
Given his successful escape from arrest, most tweets were critical of the one-time dictator, and jokes flew in fast and heavy.
Some of the top tweets are below:
