On Tuesday, Twitter tweeted out a countdown of 2017's top tweets. It was a year in which nearly every sector of society was mashed together or clashing on social media, with the "Tweeter in Chief", President Donald Trump, leading the way.

The most-liked tweet of the year was from Mr Obama.

Coming in at the second most retweeted tweet of 2017, the former president's response to the violence in Charlottesville over the summer was retweeted by over 1.7 million users (and, when it was posted, quickly became the most-retweeted tweet at the time).

The current U.S. president made neither the most-retweeted nor the most-shared lists this year. (Sad!) And much to his chagrin, his predecessor Barack Obama managed to make that not once, not twice, but three times.
