‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Avengers: Endgame’ Among Most Popular Tweets of 2019

Twitter released its top-trending topics and tweets of 2019 with “Game of Thrones,” “Avengers: Endgame,” and actor Tom Holland commanding the most tweets in the TV, movies, and actors categories.

BTS holds both the No. 1 spot in the most-tweeted-about musicians category and the second-most-retweeted tweet worldwide. Since its release in June, a video of BTS band member Jungkook dancing has been liked 2.3 million times and retweeted 951,000 times.

Fans have responded to the tweet with adoration, tweeting “I miss you,” and celebrating BTS’ Twitter power by acknowledging Jungkook’s retweet stats.

Game of Thrones” released its final season this year, and fans took to Twitter to express their feelings, propelling the property to the top of the TV category. Even though fans were highly critical of the season, the Television Academy bypassed criticism and awarded the series with an Emmy for best drama series. In its final year, fans continued to keep the spirit of “Game of Thrones” alive with funny and creative posts.

Variety reported “Avengers: Endgame” surpassed “Avatar’s” box office success, becoming the biggest movie of all time when it crossed $2.7 billion at the global box office in July 2019. When Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark sacrificed himself to save the universe at the end of the film, fans took to Twitter to express their pain.

“Spider-Man: Homecoming” actor Tom Holland not only has a very active fanbase, but has also made headlines this year with the Sony-Marvel Spider-Man dispute. Holland recently sparked Twitter conversation for his “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” appearance on Dec. 4. He talked about his involvement with the Disney-Sony split and a teary phone call that he had with Disney CEO Bob Iger. The story ends happily; Holland still has the role of web slinger, which will surely set the Twittersphere on fire with his next big release.

Even Jaden Smith is a huge fan.
