AceShowbiz - K-pop sensations BTS (Bangtan Boys) were the most tweeted about celebrities in America.
The South Korean seven-piece group's fame has grown outside their homeland over the past two years, and their rise has been fuelled by the dedication of their fans, known as the 'BTS Army' on social media.
Their popularity online means they were the most tweeted-about celebs in America this year, according to figures from Twitter.com.
BTS also had the most liked tweet in the world in 2018 - their dance video response to Drake's #InMyFeelingsChallenge, which has racked up 1.6 million likes since it was posted on July 23 (2018). The Canadian rapper asked fans to dance to his track "In My Feelings", and band member J-Hope took up the challenge and strutted his stuff while being filmed from a car.
Bizarrely, a nonsensical string of random letters and numbers beginning with "AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHR" posted by Lady GaGa in 2012 was the third most quoted tweet of the year, and was also liked 329,000 times and retweeted 232,000 times.

Users quoted it to express exasperation or fear, joking that it's what they would say in a particular situation.
