(AMP) — Between hurricanes and politics, it was a dark year for the most popular tweets on Twitter.

That’s the main takeaway from Twitter’s most-retweeted list for the year, which was released Tuesday.

It wasn’t all doom and gloom though — look at Carter Wilkinson who begged Wendy’s for free chicken nuggets for a year, which was the most retweeted at 3.6 million.

However, more than half of the top 10 most retweeted had a somber tone.

Even a Detroit Lions player’s tweet cracked the list.

Lions punter Sam Martin’s Houston-related tweet was the year’s ninth-most retweeted tweet after he promised to donate six pounds of dog food every time he was retweeted.

The full, lists, as provided by Twitter, are below:
