Kicking off the surge of end-of-year roundups, Twitter Philippines released their biggest conversation starters of 2017. They rounded up the most tweeted accounts, hashtags, movies and many more, and looking at the lists will give you slight nostalgia for sure.
Host, actress and Preview December cover girl Maine Mendoza is one of the list's biggest winners, being the most tweeted Filipino account of 2017 and and get this—the fifth most tweeted celebrity in the world. She's just a number behind Justin Bieber! In the top ten with her are popular Korean groups BTS and Seveteen, singer Camilla Cabello and One Direction members Niall Horan and Harry Styles.
Twitter also honored the most followed Filipino accounts. Vice Ganda bagged the top spot with 10.2 million, followed by Anne Curtis with 10.1. Angel Locsin, Kathryn Bernardo and Yeng Constantino joined the two of them in the top five!
The site's most talked-about moments include ABS-CBN's Push Awards, the Kids' Choice Awards and Miss Universe. The Marawi Conflict and ASEAN Summit were big conversation starters, too, landing the 8th and 9th spot. Most tweeted hashtags were #KCAPinoyStar followed by #NadineLustre (who won the award!) and the #MissUniverse hashtag.
Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil's My Ex and Whys was the buzziest Filipino movie of the year, while KathNiel's La Luna Sangre reigned supreme in the teleserye category.
Maine and Alden Richards took over the loveteam bracket, with Aldub being the most tweeted loveteam closely followed by KathNiel and JaDine. Interestingly, Alden is the second most tweeted Pinoy account after Maine while Aldub Nation is third!
Twitter didn't forget the Pinoy's love of sports either and posted roundups of the most tweeted athletes and sports moments.
Cheers to a more trending topics in 2018!
