The Top Tweets and Trends on Twitter in 2015

Twitter has launched #YearOnTwitter, a place to look back at the most retweeted tweets, the most popular trends, and how the year unfolded across the world on the microblogging platform.

According to Twitter, some of the most popular tweets came from US President Barack Obama, rapper-turned-fashionista Kanye West, and, of course, multiple members of boy band One Direction.



 Same as Instagram, the most popular hashtag was #love. #OneDirection was also popular, no surprise, as were many Apple-related hashtags, including #iPad, #iPhone, and #Apple.
