On Monday, Twitter shared its 2020 countdown data #ThisHappened2020 under which details about the most used hashtags, the most spoken about shows, the list had it all. The details were shared on the Twitter Data handle in a thread. The tweet read, "How do you recap a year like 2020? By reflecting on how we all got through it together on Twitter. #ThisHappened2020." The thread also included, "While it was a year of uncertainty, it was also a year of gratitude. Tweets expressing being grateful or thankful increased by 20% globally."


Speaking about the most favorited tweet of the year, it was shared, "The world mourned together when news about the tragic passing of actor @ChadwickBoseman was shared, making this the most RTed & QTed Tweet of the year and the most (heart emoji) Tweet of all time." It was also revealed that Coronavirus and the pandemic related hashtags were also most used. The tweet read, "It’s no surprise that #COVID19 and #StayHome are the first and third most Tweeted hashtags respectively of 2020, but we also saw a few interesting trends related to the topics..."


The next tweets shared data regarding TV shows and movies, "On average, there were over 7,000 Tweets per minute about TV & movies worldwide this year... so it makes sense that the (couch) emoji usage went up 40%." This tweet also shared how the most tweeted about TV show in 2020 was 'Big Brother Brasil' followed by 'A Fazenda 12'. The list also included 'Grey's Anatomy', 'Money Heist', 'Game of Thrones', 'Tiger King' and 'Stranger Things'. 


The next tweet read, "Tweets about cooking nearly tripled this year (but that banana bread craze only last 3 months), and the trends in food-related emojis suggest that folks needed a sweet treat & strong drink," along with an illustration of most tweeted about drink and dish. The next tweet read, "one of the most-Liked Tweeted of the year, we watched people get creative while under #StayHome." The accompanying video had gone viral.



Twitter had also shared a list of the most spoken about music artists and not very surprisingly, BTS topped the list. The tweet read, "In a year of so much change, it's nice to see a few things remain constant.... like BTS dominating the most-Tweeted musicians list @BTS_twt, @KanyeWest, @Beyonce, @Rihanna, @justinbieber, @iamcardib, @BLACKPINK, @Drake, @ArianaGrande, @taylorswift13."



In the blog by Twitter's Global Head of Consumer Communications Tracy McGraw, descriptive data was released, which also shared that Jungkook's cover of Lauv's 'Never Not' was the second most retweeted tweet. Kamala Harris' "We did it, @JoeBiden." also made it to the list.
