The 10 Most Retweeted Tweets of the Year

American TV personality Stephen Colbert (@StephenAtHome) tops the list with a wry Tweet about the Gulf Oil Spill, the year’s biggest Trend on Twitter. To commemorate the honor, Twitter is awarding Colbert --the titan of ‘Truthiness’-- the first-ever Golden Tweet award for the year’s Most Retweeted Tweet. Twitter co-founder Biz Stone personally presented Colbert with the award on The Colbert Report.

Musicians dominated 2010's Most Retweeted Tweets list:

Drizzy Drake (@drakkardnoir) took the #2 spot 

Lil Wayne (@liltunechi) came in at #3. 
4 is the fascination with Justin Bieber (@justinbieber)
with pop stars Joe Jonas (@joejonas) and Rihanna (@rihanna) made the list at #6 and #9 with their Bieber-related Tweets. 
Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) hit #7 
and Kanye West (@kanyewest)  is #8.

Humor is a key part of the Twitter experience, and the Most Retweeted list reflects the way that people use the service for comedy and parody.

A Tweet from the spoof account @alqaeda clocked in at #5
words of wisdom from @shitmydadsays (which got him a TV show deal) slipped into #10.
