MOST LIKED TWEET OF 2017

ArabAd - - SOCIAL SPHERE -

US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump may have been the most talked about fig­ure on Twit­ter and the In­ter­net in 2017 but sur­pris­ingly enough (or not), the most liked tweet (and se­cond most retweeted tweet) of 2017 be­longs to none but his pre­de­ces­sor, for­mer Pres­i­dent Barack Obama, whose Au­gust 2017 plea for ra­cial equal­ity fol­low­ing white na­tion­al­ist vi­o­lence in Vir­ginia earned over 4.6 mil­lion likes in to­tal. Not only that, but three of Obama’s tweets in to­tal made the ‘most retweeted’ list and two ap­peared on the ‘most liked’ list, con­firm­ing Obama’s sta­tus as one of the most beloved Twit­ter per­son­al­i­ties (and US Pres­i­dents, as some would ar­gue). To put things into a bit of per­spec­tive, Obama es­sen­tially has more than dou­ble the fol­low­ers Trump has, with each gar­ner­ing 97.6 mil­lion and 44.1 mil­lion fol­low­ers re­spec­tively.
