Twitter continues to buzz following the five-year sentence handed down to Oscar Pistorius in the killing of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, with the top trending topic being: #ThingsLongerThanOscarsSentence.

#OscarPistorius, Judge Masipa and Reeva also continued to trend on Twitter this afternoon following this morning’s sentencing.

Twitter users believed that the sentence was too short – which spawned a slew of jokes.
