And the most popular tweet of 2016 is a bit obscure. It comes from Spanish gamer named “elrubius”, in which he tweeted the Spanish word for lemonade. Garnering over a million retweets, that might’ve been so because he told his followers he would give prizes to those who retweeted him. Looks like his publicity stunt worked out for him.
Among 2016’s most trending topics on Twitter were the Rio Olympics, the US presidential election, and PokemonGo.
