While you were sleeping, the Internet never stopped. And it's amazing what the Internet comes up with.

Check out what people are tweeting, sharing and talking about.

#DDay unfolds in real-time on Twitter

A sun-splattered Normandy celebrated peace Friday, with silent salutes, tears and international friendship marking 70 years since the D-Day invasion helped change the course of World War II and modern history.

Decades later, Twitter users can experience the D-Day mission minute-by-minute, as if the events were being covered today. The real-time updates provide a more meaningful way to connect with younger generations.

On the anniversary, check out some of these Twitter accounts:

@CBCDDayLive: The Canadian news channel covers details in real time, with a focus on Canada's role in the historic invasion.

@RealTimeDDay: This account is live tweeting the build-up and execution of the mission, offering photos and more.

@ukwarcabinet: Watch WWII unfold 70 years later using official government and military documents from the National Archives in the UK.

Beastie Boys fight for the right to litigate

The Beastie Boys are trending on Facebook after winning $1.7 million in a copyright violation case against the maker of Monster Energy drink.

The jury decided the drink company had violated the band's copyrights by using several of their songs like "sabotage," "make some noise," "looking down the barrel of a gun" and others in a 2012 promotional video.

Thursday's ruling ends a case in which the two surviving members of the band testified about their staunch opposition to the use of their music in commercial endorsements.

Beastie Boys v. Monster: Case closed.

Turn down (adoption) for what? Kittens need a home

Finding a good home for small kittens isn't as easy as you'd think. That was the case for foster parents Andrew Kerr and Hayley Markham looking for someone to adopt a pair of adorable, two-month-old kittens.

So, they posted the best video you'll see all day long of the felines getting crunk to DJ Snake & Lil Jon's song "Turn Down For What."

The kittens, Daisy and Tulip, were still listed as an adoptable pet on the Animal Welfare League of Arlington, Virginia.
