Twitter user @powerpufftag asked the Twitterverse to sum up 2017 in four words and hashtag it with (none other than) #2017in4words and this is what Twitter gave us.
Expectedly, many of these tweets were related to political issues, with US politics in particular being a hot topic. Those who still could not believe that Trump became their president took the opportunity to express their views.

Naturally, the fans of social media’s most influential artist speak again. Now that BTS also has going to the AMAs to add to their list of K-Pop firsts, their fans certainly have much to say about their success.

Who cares about rules?
As with every trend, some opportunistic accounts have simply used the hashtag in hopes that their content will go viral–in this case, without even attempting to stick to the format stipulated by the hashtag.
