President Trump’s tweets are more consequential than your average bear’s — they might, on a given morning, tick off an American ally, say, or raise the possibility of a nuclear attack, but they aren’t all that — according to Twitter, which released its compilation of 2017’s top tweets and trends.
The tweeter-in-chief’s 140-character missives weren’t among the top 10 most shared or liked, according to the list. But his predecessor’s were: Former president Barack Obama had three of the top 10 most retweeted and two of the 10 most “liked.”
Obama’s tweet quoting Nelson Mandela following the white-supremacist rally in Charlottesville in August was the year’s most liked and second most-shared tweet. Perhaps illustrating the tragedy-comedy scale of the year, the ex prez’s message of tolerance came in second only to “chicken nugget guy” Carter Wilkerson, who begged for retweets so that he could get a year’s worth of free nugs from Wendy’s.

But it’s not like Trump went unnoticed on the social-media platform. He was the subject of the seventh most-shared tweet, with a tweet from Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James knocking Trump for rescinding Stephen Curry’s invitation to the White House in honor of the Golden State Warrior’s NBA championship. (James referred to him as “U bum.”)
And Trump topped the list of most-talked-about elected leaders and U.S. politicians. You can see the entire list here.
