Queen Bey blew up social media (and pop culture) with her release of Lemonade. Tons of users teeeted their reaction to the album and plenty of remarks about Becky with good hair.

However, one Spanish gamer stole the lemonade show with a single worded tweet.
Harry Styles Throwing Shade
On his 22nd birthday, the boy band hearthrob tweeted out the celebration. However, many speculated that he was throwing some shade out to his ex-girlfriend, Taylor Swift.
I don't know about you, but I'm feeling 22.

Of course, there were plenty of tweets about the historic and crazy presidential campaign. We won’t get into that can of worms.
Then, there were heartfelt serious moments. Like the hopeful tweet from Hillary Clinton after conceding the campaign to the now president-elect Donald Trump.
"To all the little girls watching…never doubt that you are valuable and powerful & deserving of every chance & opportunity in the world."

However, CNet reports that as huge of a social media storm that was made by the presidential campaign, it came in second to another major event: the Rio Olympics.
