Here's What The World Tweeted About The Most In 2019

From Marvel movies to the K-pop explosion, here's what the world tweeted about the most in 2019.

Every year, we spend hundreds of hours on Twitter: reading, writing, faving, and replying. And each year, the people at Twitter tally up all of our jibber-jabber and tell us the things we've been jibber-jabbering about the most.

In the least shocking news ever, the most tweeted about TV show in 2019 was Game of Thrones, which is no surprise given the fanfare and discussions over the much talked-about final season.

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!) We got this 🙌

2. In second place we have Jungkook from BTS dancing to Billie Eilish's "Bad Guy."

3. Next, we have people being chased by a cute little bird.


4. In fourth place we have this regal cat who can jump over a fence with grace and ease.

5. And in fifth place we have this supremely loyal bird.

My niece has her bird trained to attack anyone she screams at 😂😂😂

And these were the three most retweeted threads of the year:

1. First is a story about the circumstances around a British man meeting his wife.

ONE My dad died. Classic start to a funny story. He was buried in a small village in Sussex. I was really close to my dad so I visited his grave a lot. I still do. [DON’T WORRY, IT GETS FUNNIER.]

2. In second place is an educational thread about the climate crisis.

Remember: 1. The Amazon is burning 2. The Arctic's on fire 3. The Oceans are boiling 4. The Coral reefs are dying 5. Greenland is melting 6. Permafrost is collapsing 7. Antarctica is heating 8. Ecosystems are crashing 9. Earth is turning to desert 10. Emissions are accelerating

3. And in third place is this thread about how to identify victims of a stroke.

STROKE: Remember The 1st Three Letters… S.T..R … My friend sent this to me and encouraged me to post it and spread the word. I agree. If everyone can remember something this simple, we could save some folks.

(You'll have to click through all three of these tweets to read the full thread.)

And finally, the "laughing face with tears" was the most tweeted emoji in 2019, proving that no matter how bizarre or upsetting the world gets, we can all still have a laugh about it.
