In the spirit of Election 2016 coming to a close, Twitter Moments rounded up the highlights of both candidates’ tweets. Many of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s most popular tweets revolved around the strong criticism of his opponent and his infamous taco bowl tweet. On the other hand, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s most popular tweets included her “Delete your account” burn to her opponent, the live tweets from debate nights and recently, a birthday wish “to this future president.”

Take a look at some of the most popular tweets below:

President Barack Obama had a popular Twitter moment of his own in 2012 when he was reelected for a second term. After the news was announced, a tweet went out of him and Michelle Obama hugging with the caption, “four more years.” The tweet earned more than 840,000, becoming the most popular tweet of all time (at the time). Eventually, that record was taken away by Ellen DeGeneres’ star-studded Oscars selfie.
