2017年度十大被重推最多推文,奥巴马占了三个

Twitter统计了2017年度的十大被重推最多的推文,奥巴马的占了其中三个,而总是发有争议推文的川普,则榜上无名。毕竟,全世界的网民爱好和平,善良,正常的还是大多数。

奥巴马引用纳尔逊曼德拉的推文排名第二,有一百七十万的重推:“没有人生来就会因为肤色,背景和宗教信仰的不同而互相仇恨。。。”,其他入选2条最流行推文的都是在他准备离职期间发的,看来他是深受美国人爱戴。
一条呼吁需要免费鸡肉块的推文击败所有其他政治和人文的推,被转发一千七百万次,内容极其幼稚:“请帮帮我吧,某人需要鸡肉块。”

Twitter has released its annual list of the most popular tweets on the platform, and in a year when so much coverage of the US president, Donald Trump, has been dominated by his Twitter activity, it is his predecessor Barack Obama who dominates.

Obama’s tweet quoting Nelson Mandela, stating “no one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion …” had more than 1.7m retweets and was the second most popular tweet of the year. It was tweeted on 13 August after the death of the anti-fascist protester Heather Heyer at Charlottesville.

Two other tweets posted by Obama also featured in the top 10 – both posted in January as his term in office came to an end.

Also on the top 10 list was the explicitly anti-Trump sentiment of the NBA star LeBron James after the controversy over whether the Golden State Warriors would attend an event at the White House. Trump appeared to rescind the invitation after members of the team stated they were not going to accept it, prompting LeBron to tweet:

Ariana Grande’s reaction to the deaths at her concert in Manchester after the terrorist bombing in May were the fourth most retweeted post of the year. The star’s admission that she was “broken” by events was retweeted more than a million times. Grande returned to the city a few weeks later to lead a huge fundraising concert. 

Fundraising attempts for victims of flooding in Houston also proved popular, with one appeal for dog food potentially racking up a donation of more than 1,800 US tons of it. The appeal was from Sam Martin, who plays for the NFL’s Detroit Lions.

The popularity figures are, however, difficult to verify. There has been considerable controversy around the activities of botnets and paid trolls on Twitter, and there is no independent audit of what the platform claims is the most popular.

All of the political and humanitarian tweets, though, were outperformed on the social media platform by one man’s appeal for free chicken nuggets. Eight months after posting the most viral tweet of the year, Carter Wilkerson is still over 14m retweets short of getting his nuggs.
