These tweets were so good they got more than 100,000 retweets

Let us take you back to 31 October 2014.

It was a simpler time, that's for sure. Donald Trump was still a reality TV star, the portmanteau "Brexit" had yet to become a daily utterance and Nick Clegg was the Deputy Prime Minister - remember that?

Anyway, it was one fateful morning in October when the following tweet was sent from the account of the chart-topping pop star and honorary ambassador for the Republic of Kosovo Rita Ora.

Needless to say it, urm, didn't get 100,000 retweets. It got somewhere in the region of 2,000 by the afternoon of the day it was tweeted - before being swiftly deleted.

Rita would later say she was hacked. Luckily this year she released her banger Anywhere and we all forgot about the whole thing.

The point of this fantastic story? Some people do get 100,000 retweets.

And in honour of Rita Ora, we've pulled together our favourites from 2017 to reach that mammoth milestone. We look forward to the authors of said tweets dropping their new songs on an upcoming Monday of their choosing.

Unsurprisingly, a lot of them involve animals. Maybe that's where Rita went wrong.
