Twitter on Tuesday released its list of the 10 most retweeted tweets of 2017, and President Trump may not be pleased. The regular tweeter did not make the cut even once, while predecessor Barack Obama ended up with three in the top 10, notes Politico. The most retweeted tweet of all, however, belonged not to a politician but to a teenager trying to score some Chicken McNuggets.
