Chicken Nuggets have been the most retweeted subject of the past 12 months...
An American football player's begging letter for free chicken nuggets for a year has become the most retweeted tweet in the UK in 2017
Carter Wilkerson asked the US fast food chain Wendy's how many retweets he would need for them to give him free chicken nuggets for a year - and they quoted him a cool 18 million.
He only got retweeted more than 3.6 million times, but the restaurant still gave him the nuggets!
Also on the list of the most re-tweeted posts were Ariana Grande’s response to the terror attack at her show in Manchester in May and footballer Jermain Defoe’s tribute to six-year-old cancer sufferer Bradley Lowery, who died in July.
On a lighter note, Stoke City FC footballer and Radio X DJ Peter Crouch caused much hilarity of a holiday snap with his “family” - the 6 foot 7 striker was seen feeding a group of giraffes!
