The micro-blogging social network of Twitter has immense popularity at a global level and is used by world leaders, politicians, celebrity and the general public to convey a message or participate in an informal debate.

The top 10 'Most-Retweeted Tweets' of 2017 have shown surprising results. While US President Donald Trump, who relies greatly on Twitter in order to bypass the media in giving his message to the public missed the cut, former US President Barack Obama is featured thrice.

Ranked number 1 with 3.6 million retweets is a tweet from Carter Wilkerson who sought public help to secure 18 million retweets in order to get a year's worth of free chicken nuggets from Wendy's fast food chain.

The other tweets on the top 10 list were more serious than the light-hearted first one. Obama's final tweets as the US President made it to the list, as did his tweet after the protests in Charlottesville, Virginia. Pop singer Ariana Grande's tweet after the terrorist attack during her concert in the UK also made it to the list, as did a tweet sharing a suicide helpline number.

While the list is said to be of the 'Most-Retweeted Tweets (Global)' mostly tweets from people in the US made it to the top 10.
