If you could use just one word to describe 2017 in the good ol' US of A, what would it be? We're guessing it would be something along the lines of "horrific" or "infuriating" or "a-gigantic-embarrassment-to-the-rest-of-the-word." Okay, so maybe that was a few more than one word...
But luckily, there is some good news mixed in with all the tragedy of the past year: the top tweets of 2017 are in, and not one of them are from our Tweeter in Chief.
And that's something to be proud of, America.
