Barack Obama beats Donald Trump in most popular tweets of 2017

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.

While it was filled with the names of presidents, National Basketball Association stars and musicians, one young man from Reno, Nevada took the top spot for the most retweeted tweet of the last 12 months.

PBS' special live coverage of Trump's inauguration day was the most viewed live stream broadcast of the year.

Twitter said that Trump with 44.1 million followers and Prime Minister Modi with 37.5 million followers are respectively the first and second "most tweeted about world leaders" for the year 2017.

Carter Wilkerson beat out the likes of former President Barack Obama and singer Ariana Grande and it was all in the name of 'nuggs.

Trump says he wants Senator Orrin Hatch to seek re-election in Utah
Orrin Hatch , R-Utah, to seek for re-election in 2018 - a move which some see as an attempt to block former Massachusetts Gov. Romney fiercely criticized Trump during last year's campaign and came to personify the "Never Trump" movement for a time.

Woods finishes strong with final-round 68 at Hero
Third-round leader Hoffman (72) once again failed to convert his 54-hole lead into a win and finished four behind Fowler. No more birdies were forthcoming, however, and Fowler settled for a course-record 61 and an 18-under total of 270.

The tweet showed a photo of a racially diverse group of children looking out a window at Obama as he smiled back, and bore a quote from Nelson Mandela.

On April 5, Wilkerson asked Wendy's how many retweets he would need to get free chicken nuggets for a year.

All of the political and humanitarian tweets, though, were outperformed on the social media platform by one man's appeal for free chicken nuggets.

The current occupant of the White House was, however, the most tweeted-about world leader though.

Wilkerson's post topped the list ahead of singer Ariana Grande's response to the terror attack following her concert at the MEN Arena in Manchester in May, in which the U.S. star said she was "broken". I'm asking you to believe-not in my ability to create change, but in yours. The former president tweeted: "It's been the honor of my life to serve you". You made me a better leader and a better man. They include two from Obama thanking his supporters during his final days in the White House, and basketball star LeBron James calling Trump a "bum" in defense of Golden State Warriors' star Stephen Curry, who said his NBA championship team would not take part in the ceremonial visit to White House this season. Cancer doesn't know what it's up against.
