Even though Barack Obama has been out of the White House for almost a year, he's still reigning as the commander in chief of tweets. He has the "most liked" Twitter posts of 2017 while President Donald Trump doesn't even make the list. Furthermore, according to lists released by Twitter on Tuesday, the 44th President of the United States had the most liked tweet in 2017. He also had three of the top nine most retweeted tweets . His successor, even though he's considered to be a Twitter maven, didn't crack this list either.

Here's a sneak peek at Twitter's most liked posts and most retweeted posts of 2017!

1. Carter Wilkerson - a man from Nevada - who begged people to retweet him to achieve Wendy's challenge of 18 million retweets for a year's worth of free nuggets  - featured first - making Wendy's give him free nuggets for his effort. 

 

2. Stepping up second was Obama quoting Nelson Mandela and receiving 1.7 million retweets!  

Most liked tweets of the year was by none other than Barack Obama.

3. Obama issued this tweet that featured third in the most retweeted tweets- after learning that his former rival for the White House, Sen. John McCain, had been diagnosed with a highly malignant form of brain cancer.

 

4. Obama's humorous acknowledgment of Joe Biden's meme of his own to mark his VP's birthday last month - took the 4th place for the most liked tweet.
ME: Joe, about halfway through the speech, I’m gonna wish you a happy birth--
BIDEN: IT’S MY BIRTHDAY!
ME: Joe.

Happy birthday to @JoeBiden, my brother and the best vice president anybody could have. pic.twitter.com/sKbXjNiEjH

5) Obama started tweeting soon after he left office - but through his personal account. Twitter uses couldn't have been more overjoyed by his reappearance and gave his post enough reposts to have it featured as the 5th most liked tweet in 2017!

6. Obama's thank you note to the American people asking them to continue believing in his "change" campaign mantra won him the most liked (5th place) and most retweeted tweet (6th place)

 


7. Obama and Michelle's genuine sympathies for victims in Vegas as extended by the former president through his Twitter handle resonated with enough people for 404,216 to retweets and 1,717,933 to hit "like."

 

8. This was one of the last tweets Obama posted on his official presidential Twitter account on the President Trump's inauguration. It melted hearts and made people shed some tears. No wonder this tweet also featured 8th in the list of most liked tweets of this year.

9. Another tweet by Obama extending his sympathies to the Spanish after a terror attack won helped many hold on to faith that everything will become better. 

 
10. Is it a coincidence - the fact that 10th most retweeted tweet and the 1st were by Obama and offered a quote by Nelson Mandela?

However, Trump supporters should not lose heart because even though Trump did not feature in either of the lists — he took the first place for the most tweeted about elected world leader! Better luck next time!
