Talking tech since 2003

Twitter just released its 2012 Year In Review site along with a great complimentary video (see above). It’s been a great year in a lot of ways and it’s cool to relive some of those moments through Twitter.

When it comes to discovering the most interesting trends and tweets in 2012, Twitter has split them up into five categories for you to browse: Golden Tweets, The pulse of the planet, Only on Twitter, Top Trends, and New Voices.


Golden Tweets

Here you can find the top two Tweets that generated the most Retweets for the year, plus honorable mentions for a few other Tweets that caught attention around the world.

The pulse of the planet

The pulse of the planet signifies the biggest conversations of the year around single events that generate a large number of Tweets and Retweets. Here you can find the major occurrences in 2012 for which the world came together to witness and discuss.

Only on Twitter

Moments of serendipity and just plain awesomeness (if there is such a thing) are called #onlyontwitter. Here you find examples of Tweets that came to life organically on Twitter.

Top trends

Trends are the topics for which we see noteworthy spikes in Twitter conversations. The 2012 Trends reveal what captured Twitter’s attention, rather than what terms were consistently popular.

New voices

Here you can find all the new voices Twitter welcomed, with a collection of high-profile Twitter users who joined in 2012.
