How many times has your tweet gone viral? Every day, millions of people post status updates on Twitter. They post everything from announcing a job promotion to commenting on how their day is going.
Most of these tweets maybe get one or two reposts, if any. Then there are those who post something that gets retweeted thousands or even millions of times.
This could happen to anyone: from celebrities to average Joes. They post asking for charity, mentioning giveaways, or even asking for chicken nuggets (yes, one guy really did this).
If you’re curious about the most popular tweets that have been widely shared, look no further. Here are the 25 most retweeted tweets.
