The 12 Most Popular @WBUR Tweets Of 2014

Mayor Menino's death. The passing of Car Talk host Tom Magliozzi. Ferguson protests. All of these, and others, had tremendous reach on Twitter — and WBUR's account is no exception. We dug into our timeline to uncover our 12 most popular tweets of 2014 (through Dec. 15).

Note: Engagement is defined as any action a user takes on the tweet — photo views, link clicks, expands, etc. — and does not consider only retweets and favorites. That's why some tweets with relatively low retweets or favorites are ranked higher than others with more.
