Twitter has published its latest instalment of its #Hindsight2010 series, this time awarding US TV personality Stephen Colbert it’s first-ever “Golden Tweet Award” for the Most Retweeted Tweet of 2010.
Colbert’s tweet: “In honor of oil-soaked birds, ‘tweets’ are now ‘gurgles.’ http://bit.ly/cIhZNf“, tops Twitter’s top ten list with over 44,000 retweets – Twitter co-founder Biz Stone actualling presenting Colbert with the award on tonight’s The Colbert Report.
F**k it, we'll do it live!
Musicians (if you can call them that), made up nearly every other position in 2010’s Most Retweeted Tweets List with Drizzy Drake (@drakkardnoir) taking second #2 spot, with Lil Wayne (@liltunechi) collecting the bronze at #3.
Justin Bieber (@justinbieber), never too far away from top spot on any social networking list came in fourth with both Joe Jonas (#7) and Rihanna (#9) managing to rank in the top ten just for tweeting something vaguely related to the young singer.
Spoof account @alqaeda managed a very respectable fifth place and everyone’s favourite @shitmydadsays with his words of wisdom placed tenth. Long Cat (@longcat111, @longcat222 and @longcat333) got an extra mention too, hilarious.
