Top Tweet of 2012: Two ParentsDanielle Sullivan
Do you know that Facebook app that shows your past year’s statuses highlighted in a paragraph form? More often than not, I’ll use that app for a laugh and invariably end up not even remembering some of the updates I wrote. But there are always a few that stand out, and make me smile from a good memory.
I’m not sure if Twitter has any similar app but they did announce their top tweet of the year for all of us to remember.
It was the one tweet that generated the most retweets of the entire year.
Can you guess what it was in 2012?
It was a three-word phrase with a simple photo that warmed many hearts back in November. And it immediately made (and still) makes me smile because it was, yet again, a thrilling moment in history I will always remember.
President Obama’s simple tweet stating “Four more years” generated over 810,000 tweets. The photo accompanying the tweet was a tender and loving hug between the President and First Lady. It was beautiful then and still beautiful now; a photo capturing the genuine love the couple has for one another.
With all the disturbing things (especially from famous people) on Twitter this year, this tweet showed how social media can be used to inspire, share, and celebrate.
