* 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?

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.
Thank you for everything. My last ask is the same as my first. I'm asking you to believe—not in my ability to create change, but in yours.— President Obama (@POTUS44) January 11, 2017
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.
U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!— LeBron James (@KingJames) September 23, 2017
