BTRtoday's 2020 Year in Twitter

A lot of things changed in 2020, but Twitter wasn’t one of them.

Sure, the social media platform added fact checking information to roughly every single Donald Trump tweet and flagged endless election conspiracies, but even that stuff felt par for the course. Still, Twitter is the lifeblood of political discussion and content, and you needn’t look any further than our site for proof.

We’ve done stories featuring completely idiotic, simply hilarious, actual intelligent, and/or righteous tweets—you name it. From inane Trumpism to confusing cake videos, our 2020 ran the Twitter gamut.
