The U.S. Congress has seen a chaotic 24 hours. In the wake of the Pulse mass shooting in Orlando and other mass shootings - the democratic members of congress - the minority party there - held a protest.

With the congressional C-Span camera turned off by speaker Paul Ryan the congress members used social media - including live stream services to deliver their message to Americans.

Now the sit-down strike is over - and what was accomplished - who won?
