The Most Retweeted Posts Of 2016 Involves Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson And Taylor Swift
Just when you thought Haylor had finally died.
Just when you thought you'd finally managed to bury Haylor in that locked box of memories you'd rather pretend never happened, along comes 2016 to ruin it for you.
Way back in February you'll no doubt remember Harry taking to Twitter to celebrate his birthday with a rather excellent tweet referencing the lyrics of '22', the song penned by his former girlfriend.
Well it turns out you, your sister, your best friend and your gossipy next door neighbour Angela's mum weren't the only ones who spotted it and it's been revealed that this tweet was actually the second most retweeted post of the whole entire year. That is at least unless you lot pull out all the stops and get that post about our hash brown and gravy dinner a whopping 708,202 more retweets by December 31st.
It's actually the top tweet of the year in the English language and was only pipped to the post by a Spanish gamer called elrubius who simply tweeted 'LIMONADA' (Spanish for lemonade) and who has managed to garner a cool 1,386,381 retweets for the pleasure.
Also on the list of top tweets is another One Direction band member, with Louis Tomlinson getting two tweets in the Top 10. The first was his first pic of baby Freddie with the second his announcement of the birth.
So while Selena Gomez is clearly ruling Instagram right now, it appears the 1D boys (with just a splash of Haylor) still have Twitter totally under their rather perfect thumbs.
