Note

Shares are not the same as retweets (RTs). This is because some software do not mark a tweet as an RT when sharing, or users copied and pasted the URL into their own tweet. Fortunately our system does ranking by URL and we managed to uncover popular photos that were not widely retweeted by the initial poster.

Some RT counts are higher than our Share counts because of any of the following reasons:

  1. we did not track the keywords used in the original tweet (as in the case of No.39’s #PartiKitty)
  2. the original tweet falls outside the date range (as in No.32, which was originally tweeted on 16th April)
  3. Retweets occurred outside the date range
  4. Twitter does not guarantee availability of all tweets when performing collecting data from their server
