Photo of Chester Bennington among most retweeted tweets of 2017

ABC/Randy HolmesThe photo of Chester Bennington that Linkin Park posted on July 20 — the day the singer died — was one of the most retweeted tweets of 2017.

As of December 6 at 3 p.m. ET, the post had been retweeted over 787 thousand times, putting it at number six on the list. The tweet does not include any words, just a photo of Bennington performing while surrounded by fans.

Prior to the post, Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda tweeted that the news of Bennington’s death was “true,” but the photo was the first collective response from the band.

The most retweeted tweet of 2017 was Nevada teen Carter Wilkerson‘s plea to help him earn a year’s worth of free chicken nuggets from Wendy’s.
