Obama, Flooding, Bomb and Chicken Nuggets Top Twitter in 2917

Carter Wilkerson

Half of the top 10 tweets reveal a year marked by tragedy and sorrow, from a Houston submerged in water, to a concert in Manchester, England, where a suicide bomber killed 22 people, including children.

"No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin or his background or his religion".

But this is one he won't be able to reverse: Three of Obama's tweets rank among 2017's most retweeted posts, Twitter says.

Third was former Obama adviser Ben Rhodes, @brhodes, followed by Obama's former official photographer, @PeteSouza, who has tweeted flattering pictures of Obama during some of Trump most criticized moments.

It 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".

Obama took three of the top 10 spots on the list.

Obama would make the top nine most retweets two additional times while current President Donald Trump did not make this specific list. Her post was retweeted over 1.12 million times and was the second most-liked tweet of 2017. He also came in No. 1 for top tweeted US elected officials, with Vice President Mike Pence and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan taking second and third. "I'm asking you to believe-not in my ability to create change, but in yours".

Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James immediately hit back at the president in a tweet that drew immediate praise and more than 661,000 retweets. Obama's personal @BarackObama account tweeted. That earned 871,000 retweets and 1.9 million likes. "U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going!", James wrote on Sep. 23.

Pop star Ariana Grande's message on May 22, the day a terrorist attack on her Manchester concert left almost two dozen people dead and hundreds injured, drew almost 3 million likes and more than 1 million retweets. "Consider it done", was the 16-year-old's confident response. "Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!" The tweet was also the second most liked in 2017. As President Trump is learning, exploring Twitter's outer limits can only take you so far.
