We primed a bedroom last night, need to tape off corners and walls because we;'re doing two different colors - my question is - Is it ok to put tape on the Primer and start painting over the primer? It will have been almost 24 hours.

Most primers dry in an hour.
After 24-hours you will certainly be safe to tape.
If you are concerned about pulling primer or paint off the wall, consider using 3M Delicate Surface tape. It is low adhesion, but also has edge-lock to help create a perfectly straight line.
