The Year In Re-Tweets: Justin Bieber, Stephen Colbert & Oil Spill
So many people love Justin Bieber. They love him so much, that this year Twitter changed the way it counts its most tweeted-about topics to effectively exclude him.
Still, the teenage heartthrob made it into not one but three of this year’s 10 “most retweeted tweets.” Tweet that?
No. 1 was no other than that lovable faux-conservative TV comedian Stephen Colbert with his June 16 tweet, “In honor of oil-soaked birds, ‘tweets’ are now ‘gurgles.’”
Bieber himself was No. 4, with “Te quiero mucho mi amor” on July 11. But two more tweets about him — from Joe Jonas and Rihanna — were No. 6 and No. 8.
Rounding out the top 10 was another guy named Justin, who tweets about the stuff his dad says.
