Chicken nugget guy, Obama among most retweeted of 2017

Narendra Modi emerges as 'most tweeted about world leader' after Donald Trump

Former U.S. President Barack Obama scored the most popular post of 2017, earning nearly five million "likes" after responding to the violence at a white supremacy rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in August (17).

US President Donald Trump, whose posts on the site have become a key part of his communication strategy, hasn't even made the top 10 most retweeted or liked tweets this year.

Despite his status as a truly prolific tweeter, President Donald Trump will not be finding any of his tweets on this year's official Twitter list of most retweeted tweets. Another tweet, which he shared after Senator John McCain's brain cancer diagnosis was made public, received more than 2 million likes, making it the third most-liked of 2017.

That was also the second most retweeted item at 1.7 million times.

Others, including the most shared tweet of the year, expose social media's other-side-of-the-looking-glass panorama. Wendy's responded by saying they would give the man free chicken nuggets if his tweet was retweeted 18 million times.

Mr Obama appeared twice more in the top-10 most shared tweets of the year.
