Twitter has just released its end-of-year statistics breaking down who and what were the most tweeted about people and moments of 2018. K-pop sensations BTS hold the most talked-about account thanks to their “In My Feelings” challenge video, while a nonsensical tweet by Lady Gaga emerged from the depths of 2012 and resurfaced as 2018’s third most-quoted tweet.


With 1.6 million likes, Barack Obama’s shout out to the “young people” who “have helped lead all our great moments” was the second most-liked tweet of the year, followed closely by an adorable video of dogs receiving ear meds.

Of course, it wasn’t all dogs, Gaga, BTS, and the former president — the full breakdown contains all the usual suspects: Kanye West, LeBron James, Black Panther, and Stranger Things. Check out the top five most-tweeted-about celebs, musicians, shows, athletes, and movies below.
