The most liked tweets of the year were about love, loss, and President Donald Trump

The top tweets of 2017 covered a wide range of topics, from love and loss to President Donald Trump.

Twitter released its annual list of the most liked tweets of the year on Tuesday, and the top spot went to a tweet from former President Barack Obama.

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion..." Obama tweeted on August 13, two days after a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, turned violent, leaving one woman dead.

The tweet, which has been liked more than 4.5 million times, was part of a thread in which Obama quoted the late Nelson Mandela.

"People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love..."

The second-most liked tweet of the year came from singer Ariana Grande, who tweeted her support for the victims of the Manchester Arena bombing in May.

"broken. from the bottom of my heart, i am so so sorry. i don't have words."

Grande's tweet, which has been liked more than 3.6 million times, was posted shortly after a suicide bomber killed 22 people at her concert in Manchester.

The third-most liked tweet of the year was also posted in the aftermath of the Charlottesville rally, this time by television host and comedian Jimmy Kimmel.

"This is how I sleep at night, knowing two white supremacists are in the White House."

Kimmel's tweet, which has been liked more than 3.5 million times, was posted on August 15, the day after Trump blamed "both sides" for the violence in Charlottesville.
