Twitter looks back on 2014

Twitter 2014

It’s certainly been an eventful year, and social media users took full advantage of platforms to chronicle every happening in 2014. On its #YearInReview microsite, Twitter highlights the most memorable moments of the year gone by, in tweets.

There’s a lot to explore in 140 characters through the past 11 months: from celebrities like Robert Downey Jr. and Garth Brooks making their Twitter debuts, to the gorgeous celebratory proceedings at the XXII Olympic Winter Games in Sochi in February, to Bradley Cooper’s infamous star-studded selfie at the Oscars in March.
