A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle
Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):
I’m not sure why they release these end of the year lists so early, maybe they’re lazy, I don’t know, because 2017 isn’t over yet, but Twitter has released its list of the most popular Tweets of 2017, and I know this is gonna shock you (not) that Trump took the top spot in most Tweeted about world leaders.
The most retweeted Tweet of the year goes to the Wendy’s Chicken Nugget challenge. Wendy’s told a user if he got 18 million retweets they’d give him free chicken nuggets for a year. He got 3.6 million, so not bad, and they still gave him the nuggets. And Wendy’s got free publicity!
LeBron James took the top spot for athlete Tweet when he reacted to Trump not inviting the Warriors to the White House, an issue he won’t have to worry about anytime soon, since he never wins.
The most Tweeted about celebrity in 2017 is a band you’ve never heard of, the K-pop band BTS. The most Tweeted about TV show in America in 2017 goes to HBO’s Game of “Porn.” And it’s no Wonder, that Wonder Woman landed at the top of the list for most Tweeted about movies since that movie was such a hit.
Top hashtags are all about Trump with #Resist coming in at number one and #MAGA at two.
My guess is that Trump will be topping Twitter’s list in 2018 as well, multiple times in fact.
