Ellen’s Oscars selfie was the undisputed ‘Golden Tweet’ of the year globally, with over 3 million retweets.
Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong (@leehsienloong) was identified of Singapore's top Tweeter, using the platform to show his human side and provide behind-the-scenes access to connect with the average Singaporean.
#BringBackOurGirls: In response to a mass kidnapping in Nigeria, millions of Tweets were sent mentioning #BringBackOurGirls. The map visualises the hashtag’s global spread over a two-week period.
