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 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.

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.

Here are the two runner-up Golden Tweet winners:
