While winter came for Game of Thrones last season, the HBO fantasy drama brought the fire to the Twittersphere.

According to a compilation of data compiled by Twitter, Game of Thrones was the most tweeted television show in the U.S. in 2017. On the movie side, that distinction went to Wonder Woman, the first live-action feature film for the Amazonian warrior woman of the DC lexicon.

Rounding out the year’s 10 most-tweeted works for television were — beginning with the second most tweeted — Stranger ThingsBig Brother13 Reasons WhySaturday Night LiveThe Walking DeadGrey’s AnatomyThe VoiceSupernatural, and Pretty Little Liars. For streaming-only fare in America, the most tweeted was Stranger Things, followed by 13 Reasons WhyOrange Is the New BlackHouse of CardsSense8NarcosThe Get DownThe Handmaid’s TaleBojack Horseman, and Daredevil.

Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot, was ahead of the pack on the movies side. La La Land was the second most tweeted film of the year in the U.S. — perhaps because of the Oscar snafu — followed by DunkirkSpider-Man: HomecomingJustice LeagueItBeauty and the BeastThor: RagnarokBlack Panther, and Fifty Shades Darker.

And President Trump will probably have something to tweet about this: Also revealed in the data, Barack Obama officially had the most liked tweet of the year worldwide.

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion…” the former president wrote on Aug. 12. This was in response to the rally in Charlottesville, Virginia that saw a gathering of white supremacists and neo-Nazis. It’s no surprise this was the most liked tweet of the year since Twitter revealed within days of its posting that it was the most liked tweet of all time. It was also the second most globally retweeted tweet of the year.

Obama also had the third most liked tweet when he called Senator John McCain an “American hero” and wrote for him to give cancer “hell” following the politician’s diagnosis. Ariana Grande came in second place with her response to another serious situation. She tweeted, “broken. from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don’t have words,” in response to the attack at her concert in Manchester, England.

Obama had two more tweets among the most retweeted posts of 2017 — both were his farewell words upon leaving the White House.

The fifth most retweeted: “Thank you for everything. My last ask is the same as my first. I’m asking you to believe—not in my ability to create change, but in yours.” The eighth most retweeted: “It’s been the honor of my life to serve you. You made me a better leader and a better man.”
