The most re-tweeted tweets of 2010

And the year-end lists continue, with the most retweeted tweets of the past year. Coming in at No. 1 is Stephen Colbert’s “oil-soaked birds” tweet, which was retweeted more than 37,000 times. On his show, Colbert had mentioned that each retweet would add a $1 donation to Gulf cleanup relief efforts.

The rest of the list:
