This Is 2013’s Most-Retweeted Tweet (and Winner of the Golden Tweet Award)By: Josh Wolford - December 12, 2013
Following suit, Twitter has just released their 2013 year-in-review, and like the best among them this one is interactive. You can check out the whole thing here at 2013.twitter.com. Not only can you look at the most impactful tweets of the past year in categories like news, entertainment, and sports, but you can also browse past yearly wrap-ups from Twitter.
Ok, moving on. Twitter has also awarded their “Golden Tweet” award – the most retweeted tweet of the year. Or, as Twitter says, “the one that resonated most with millions of Twitter users around the world.” Without further ado, the Golden Tweet award goes to Lea Michele, who on July 29th tweeted this photo of herself and late Glee co-star Cory Monteith. Monteith was found dead on July 13th in a Vancouver hotel room from a heroin/alcohol overdose.
Thank you all for helping me through this time with your enormous love & support. Cory will forever be in my heart. pic.twitter.com/XVlZnh9vOc
