As we're moving towards the end of yet another beautiful year, Twitter has started rolling out its top 10 list of everything that was on trend in 2017. And in the year when President Trump seemed to have overtaken Twitter completely, it surprisingly turns out that micro-blogging website was ruled by none other than former American President Barack Obama.
On Twitter's list of the ten most-re-tweeted tweets of 2017, Obama has four counts, and Trump has none. Barack Obama clearly overshadows President Trump on Twitter.
Have a look!
On August 13, after the death of anti-fascist protestor Heather Heyer, former American President Barack Obama was quick to quote the words of Nelson Mandela on Twitter which also became one of the most popular tweets on Twitter. Apparently, it also received more than 1.7 million re-tweets.
All of these tweets are those which Obama posted while handling his presidential responsibilities to Donald Trump.
President Barack Obama tweeted this on Trump's inaugural day.
This tweet from Obama when he reacted to Sen. John McCain's (R-AZ) brain cancer diagnosis in July got instant love from people, and it comes out as the third most liked tweet on Twitter in 2017.
Back in 2012, when Obama was elected as the President of the USA for the second term, he had tweeted this picture with a caption 'Four More Years,' and it became the most retweeted tweet of 2012.
Trump may not have featured on this top 10 list of Twitter trends in 2017, but his name is probably there. Apparently, an anti-Trump tweet (above) from NBA fame LeBron James. He had tweeted this after the controversy that Golden State Warriors would attend an event at the White House.
If Trump's controversies on Twitter has become a global phenomenon, then we should not forget that Obama is also a household name around the world.
Or he could take a lesson from these stats and level up the topics he tweets about being a President of the most powerful country in the world.
Oh, we saw that coming. See below.
Donald tweeted this inflammatory GIF of himself in July 2017. It may not have found its space on Twitter's most-retweeted tweet, but it's undoubtedly the most re-tweeted tweet from Trump's official account.
On Facebook, Trump's POTUS account has 22 million likes, whereas his personal profile has only 2.1 million likes.
On Facebook also, Barack Obama is ahead of Trump with 55 million likes. Even if you combine his official account and personal profile, he couldn't compete with Obama.
The rest, ladies and gentlemen, is for you to decide.
That's all, folks!
