The most retweeted stories of 2012
Breaking News’ Twitter account, @breakingnews surpassed 5 million followers on New Years Eve, and we thought it would be fun to look back over 2012 and list our retweeted stories of the year. As you’ll see, this is surprisingly different than your standard top stories of the year list. Without further ado, here we go in reverse order:
5. Whitney Houston
4. Gangnam Style
3. Gangnam Style (again!?)
2. Derrick Rose
1. Neil Armstrong
That last tweet generated over 8,900 retweets, which is double our RT record from 2011: the death of Steve Jobs.
