Caitlyn Jenner Ranks Among Top 10 Tweets of 2015

Caitlyn Jenner

Time magazine has compiled a list of the most retweeted messages on Twitter in 2015, and several among them show support for the LGBT community.

Caitlyn Jenner, the transgender Olympian who came out earlier this year on the cover of Vanity Fair, ranked number 10 on this list, after first sharing her gender identity with the social media platform.

 

 

With that tweet, Jenner smashed the record for fastest accrual of one million followers. Just a few weeks earlier, President Obama's @POTUS account accumulated 1 million followers in roughly five hours; Jenner surpassed the million mark in less than four hours.

After the U.S. Supreme Court declared same-sex marriage to be constitutional on June 26, the president joined the chorus of celebratory voices on Twitter. His #LoveWins message was retweeted almost half a million times, garnering him a spot as number 4.

However, not even the great advances in LGBT equality could compete with fans of One Direction, who boosted band members Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Zayn Malik to the top of the chart. But thankfully, in each of these tweets, the theme of love still carried the day.
