This Is What Music Twitter Cared About In 2014

Most followed, most RTd, and your state’s favorite Young Thug song.

We used to rate hot songs by how many passing cars were blasting them, but now we now check to Twitter to see what's trending. While even Lyor Cohen admits that Twitter's not a perfect measure of success or relevancy, music is one of the social network's most talked-about topics, and more artists than ever get their first big break in the Trending column. So we asked Twitter's data department to crunch some FADER-relevant numbers on who you were following, retweeting, and tweeting about this year. Below, the exclusive results of our query.
