Twitter users in the United States are really big on spreading positivity.
A look back at the country's 2016 Twitter trends show we weren't as into hash-tagging politics, buzz-worthy people or news so much as spirit. We pushed each other along with #mondaymotivation and #thursdaythoughts, and we shared good memories with #flashbackfriday.
