Twitter is out with it’s most retweeted and "liked" tweets of 2017, and the president — who has made Twitter a central part of his presidency — didn’t make the top 10 most retweeted or the top three most liked. But you know who did? Former president Barack Obama — multiple times.

Of the most retweeted tweets of 2017 from around the world, Obama made the list three times. His tweets were also two out of the top three most liked.

The former president’s tweet with a photo of him looking into a room full of multi-racial kids on August 12 — the day of violent protests at a white nationalist rally in Virginia — was the second most retweeted.

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion..." the tweet read. That photo also was Twitter’s most liked tweet of the year.






On that same day, President Trump said that “many sides” were to blame for the display of “of hatred, bigotry and violence.”

11. Cheeto needs more bots

... that's the only way he'll beat Obama for likes and RTs.

Real people - not retweeting Cheeto unless they use his tweets for ridiculing him.

7. Putin needs to draft more trolls for Trump's Russian Bot Army.

At least half of all Trump's retweets aren't even real people, so the comparison is truly frivolous. Trump is a fake twit.

10. LOL, that's gotta hurt.

Wait for Mr Trump to accuse Twitter of cooking the books.
