Most Popular Tweets In 2017

What do a former U.S. president, LeBron James and a guy who really, really likes chicken nuggets have in common? They made the biggest splash on Twitter this year. Twitter released its top trending people and topics for 2017, ranging from sports to politics to Korean boy bands. The most shared tweet of the year came from fast food lover Carter Wilkerson, who, on a quest for a year’s worth of free chicken nuggets, pleaded with the world to retweet: “HELP ME PLEASE. A MAN NEEDS HIS NUGGS.”

Former U-S President Barack Obama, with 1.7 million re-tweets in August, was second, posting, “No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin or his background or his religion.” That is a quote from Nelson Mandela. The tweet was accompanied by an adorable photo of Obama peeking into a window where several small children are looking out. (The Canadian Press)
