2017 was quite the year and it was all well documented on social media.

Twitter was abuzz with a variety of topics from politics to nuggets.

* Most popular tweets

1. Carter Wilkerson’s campaign for free nuggets for a year

The most popular tweet of the year goes to Carter Wilkerson’s campaign for free Wendy’s chicken nuggets for an entire year. If he gained 18 million retweets, the company said his wish would be granted. Despite not reaching the mark, Wendy decided to award him for his efforts. Nothing ventured nothing gained right?


2 Former US President Barack Obama's tweet in response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia was also among the top re-tweets.

3. Ariana Grande's tweet after the Manchester bombing in May

4. Obama gained another spot on the list when he thanked the public as president and expressed gratitude, as his time in office was nearing its end.

5. LeBron James' tweet about US President Donald Trump

While his individual tweets did not make the most popular tweets list, Trump certainly was a hot topic this year. LeBron's tweet commenting on Stephen Curry’s invitation to the White House went crazy viral. Mainly because of his statement to the president.
