Twitter revealed their ‘Top Tweets of 2017,’ and can you believe that although President Trump tweets at least 9 million times a day, not one of his Tweets made it into the top 10?!?! (…but we still have 26 more days to go so the President still has time!)
Here are the top tweets of 2017:
1. Carter Wilkerson. Wilkerson tried his best to get free Wendy’s chicken nuggets for a year. He fell short of Wendy’s 18 million retweets requirement but with that tweet he became the most retweeted tweet with 3.6 million.
2. Barack Obama. President Obama quoted Nelson Mandela in response to the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va.
3. Penn State IFC. The Pennsylvania State University Interfraternity Council pledged to donate to Hurricane Harvey Houston relief efforts for every retweet, offering $0.15 for every share the tweet received.
4. Ariana Grande. This was the pop star's heart wrenching tweet, after 22 people died when a bomb went off at her May 22 concert in Manchester, England.

from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don't have words.
5. Barack Obama. Former President Obama tweeted out a thank you and a charge to the American people.
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
6. Linkin Park. The rock band tweeted a photo of lead singer Chester Bennington after he killed himself at age 41.
7. LeBron James. His “U bum” tweet was directed towards President Trump. After the Golden State Warriors won the NBA championship, guard Steph Curry decided not to attend the White House championship visit. Then the president tweeted that visiting the White House was a “great honor” and since Steph Curry hesitated “his invitation was withdrawn.” That’s when James’ “U bum” tweet was born.
8. Barack Obama. Obama posted his farewell tweet on his last day in office as President of the United States.
It's been the honor of my life to serve you. You made me a better leader and a better man.— President Obama (@POTUS44) January 20, 2017
9. Sam Martin. The Detroit Lions punter pledged that for every retweet he received he would donate 6 pounds of dog food, up to $10,000, to the victims of Hurricane Harvey in Houston.
10. Seth Joesph. The former Viner and social influencer tweeted about suicide prevention.
