The best and worst of Twitter in this 2019 that is now coming to an end: the social network highlights the trends of the year.
Twitter, too, is now almost close to the end of this year. It does so with #ThisHappened, a kind of recap that collects the trends that emerged in 2019. It starts with an egg that can break every retweet record.
Let's set a world record together and get the most retweeted tweet on Twitter. Beating the current world record held by Yusaku Maezawa @yousuck2020 (5.3 million!)

#ThisHappened on Twitter in 2019
Leaving aside posts with cats in funny attitudes and various animals, it is more interesting to focus attention on how the platform was used as an information tool. In this regard, among the hashtags related to the news that have collected the most interventions and interactions, there is #NotreDame, following the fire of the cathedral in April.
In the world of politics, Donald Trump’s profile is stable on the top step of the podium, just ahead of his predecessor Barack Obama. Staying on the subject of the White House and candidates for the Oval Office, former rival Hillary Clinton and Bernie Senders are also in the Top 10.
We close with emojis, now ubiquitous communication tool, like it or not. At the top of the list of the most used the one who laughs with tears in his eyes, followed by the weeping face.
Other statistics shared by Twitter concern the most discussed TV series (Game of Thrones excels), films (The Avengers: Endgame), actors (Tom Holland), musicians (BTS), sports teams (Barcelona), female athletes (Megan Rapinoe), the male ones (Neymar) and the sports tournaments (Champion’s League).
