The social media site offered hilarity, solemnity and a ton of cute animals this year

Joel Embiid established himself as a Twitter giant in 2017. That's why he gets a category of his own in this '50 Great Tweets' roundup.

Last year, we brought you a “favorite tweets of 2016” post just before New Year’s Day. This year, we’re reprising that effort, but expanding beyond a one-day hit. That’s right. There will be two Best-of posts this year!

Today’s post is an honorable-mention collection of sorts (with a separate category dedicated solely to a very tall 76er who has elevated the social-media art form). We also have the Top 10 Tweets of the Year in a separate post.

You will also notice a lack of Tweets from a certain elected official. This is by design

You will also notice that the Nuggs tweet isn't in here either. Whatever. I don't like how it sparked an online onslaught of gimme-free-food gimmicks. Deal with it.

And away we go (in no specific order other than alphabetically by topic)!
