Obama, the chicken nugget guy, among most retweeted in 2017

But three tweets by former President Obama made the list.

Former President Barack Obama wrote three of the most retweeted posts on Twitter in 2017.

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion." the tweet read.

The number one retweeted tweet came from Carter Wilkerson, who begged people to retweet him so that he could get a year's worth of free chicken nuggets from Wendy's. The post, which was also the most liked post of 2017 on Twitter, has been retweeted more than 1.7 million times and liked more than 4.5 million times.

Trump, however, can at least take satisfaction in the fact that he made the top of the list for both the most tweeted about elected world leaders and elected U.S. Leaders.

Despite his status as a truly prolific tweeter, President Donald Trump will not be finding any of his tweets on this year's official Twitter list of most retweeted tweets. PBS' special live coverage of Trump's inauguration day was the most viewed live stream broadcast of the year. Wendy's responded 18 million.

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion". Please forward this along to help out those in need!

Thank you for everything.

It comes after Obama advised Trump about social media when speaking in India last week, following Trump's retweeting of far-right group Britain First.

U bum @StephenCurry30 already said he ain't going! The former president tweeted: "It's been the honor of my life to serve you". When questioned about the qualities that are needed for leadership Obama said, "Not to generalize, but women seem to have a better capacity than men do, partly due to their socialization". Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!

Fundraising attempts for victims of flooding in Houston also proved popular, with one appeal for dog food potentially racking up a donation of more than 1,800 U.S. tons of it. Give it hell, John.
