Twitter has unveiled its top-trending topics and tweets of 2018، with Lady Gaga، Barack Obama، and BTS commanding the most popular posts، variety reported.

Leave it to Gaga to write a tweet six years ago that becomes the third-most-quoted tweet of 2018. In 2012، the singer tweeted a random string of numbers and capitalized letters، which has since been liked 329،000 times and retweeted 232،000 times.

The nonsensical but apparently relatable text resonated with users، many of whom put their own spin on the tweet.

And in a year that saw teen activists like Emma Gonzalez fight for gun control، women’s rights، and so many other causes، none other than former President Barack Obama chimed in to celebrate these young changemakers. With 1.6 million people liking his eloquent message، Obama’s tweet became the second-most-liked tweet of 2018.

“Young people have helped lead all our great movements. How inspiring to see it again in so many smart، fearless students standing up for their right to be safe،” Obama wrote in February، “marching and organizing to remake the world as it should be. We’ve been waiting for you. And we’ve got your backs.”

South Korean boy band BTS saw a ton of success in the U.S. in 2018، and when J-Hope، one of its members، did the wildly popular In My Feelings Challenge، fans around the world of course went crazy. The video of him dancing to Drake’s song on Twitter has racked up 1.7 million likes، making it the most-liked tweet of the year.

BTS nabbed the top spot in the most-tweeted-about rankings for celebrities and musicians، a year after the group was named among the most-tweeted-about celebrities in the world. Nicki Minaj، Ariana Grande، “Game of Thrones،” and “Stranger Things” were also among consecutive mentions in 2017 and 2018.
