    Indonesians are some of the most frequent users of social media websites, including Twitter. With about 20 million monthly active users, Twitter has become one of the main tools for Indonesians to communicate online, and today the social media giant reveals (via ADdiction) just how significant the tweets coming from Indonesia are.

    The report showcases the most popular retweets, hashtags, conversations, and accounts in Indonesia.

    The Golden Tweet

    Twitter recognizes the tweet with the most retweets as the Golden Tweet. For this year’s Golden Tweet, the award goes to the star-studded selfie shot during the The Oscars with 3.3 million retweets. But the runner-up for that Golden Tweet award actually comes from Indonesia with 1 million retweets:

    Denny JA: Dengan RT ini, anda ikut memenangkan Jokowi-JK. Pilih pemimpin yg bisa dipercaya (Jokowi) dan pengalaman (JK). #DJoJK

    — Denny JA (@DennyJA_WORLD) June 4, 2014

    The tweet is one of 95 million related to the presidential election in Indonesia. The Twitter handler Denny Januar Ali is a political consultant, and inside the tweet, he says that netizens can help Joko Widodo and Jusuf Kalla become Indonesia’s president and vice president by retweeting it.
