Hundreds of protesters gathered outside La Fortaleza are holding their phones up to their ears trying to hear Rossello’s broadcast. The quiet hum is a marked difference to the loud drums and music playing most of today. pic.twitter.com/NVB9GSp0sy— Jose A. Del Real (@jdelreal) July 25, 2019

The people of Puerto Rico have just won a gigantic victory 🇵🇷🇵🇷🇵🇷
BREAKING: It is official. @ricardorossello will resign effective August 2. Protesters light fireworks, erupt in euphoric cheer. Here is the moment they find out their cries, fraught as they are, have been heard. That Ricky has resigned. #rickyrenuncia #PuertoRico pic.twitter.com/y3FYBidOGa— Nick Brown (@NickPBrown) July 25, 2019
Protesters in #PuertoRico sing the revolutionary anthem after hearing the governor @ricardorossello saying he’s going to resign. They’ve been protesting for 2 weeks. He’ll leave in Aug 2. It’s now a celebration more than a protest. #RickyRenuncia #RickyLeaks pic.twitter.com/VHNQVenIz5— Cindy Burgos (@Cindy_Andreina) July 25, 2019
BREAKING: “He’s gone.”— David Begnaud (@DavidBegnaud) July 25, 2019
The Governor of Puerto Rico has left the Governors mansion, according to an inside source. That’s not to say he’s gone for good, or is resigning.
We are still waiting for a message from him to be aired around the island, tonight. pic.twitter.com/ireK3XYpzP
More reinforcements moving in, from the inside the Governors compound, heading to the protest line.— David Begnaud (@DavidBegnaud) July 25, 2019
Everything is peaceful.
The crowd is very loud.
This is the 12 straight night of protests.
As the cops move in, we wait to find out when the Governor will give his address. pic.twitter.com/FWyLLL0sAS
Every indication was that @ricardorossello would resign today. It’s 9:15pm and he still has not. Lawmakers will start impeachment process tomorrow, if he doesn’t. The crowd outside la Fortaleza is BIG. How they react tonight and how police respond...potentially dangerous.— Bryan Llenas (@BryanLlenas) July 25, 2019
