Social media is in a frenzy after Australia voted Yes in favour of marriage equality.

Celebrities, sportspeople and business people have come out in support of the vote on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Apple CEO Tim Cook also jumped on to welcome the result with a tweet.

"Congratulations Australia! Another important step toward equality for all," he said.

Unfortunately Cook managed to use the New Zealand flag in the tweet, and had to replace it.

We got a screenshot of his initial post.

To be fair, the flags are very similar. But someone should have told him about the Aussie/Kiwi rivalry.
