Kobe was a legend on the court and just getting started in what would have been just as meaningful a second act. To lose Gianna is even more heartbreaking to us as parents. Michelle and I send love and prayers to Vanessa and the entire Bryant family on an unthinkable day.

Bought flowers to bring to staples center. When the florist saw that I wanted purple and yellow she asked, “for Kobe?” I nodded. When she finished I asked what I owed her. she shook her head, handed me the flowers and said “it’s LA”. I almost cried. LAs love for Kobe is powerful

Kobe was so much more than an athlete, he was a family man. That was what we had most in common. I would hug his children like they were my own and he would embrace my kids like they were his. His baby girl Gigi was born on the same day as my youngest daughter Me’Arah.

Sources: Kobe Bryant was on his way to a travel basketball game with his daughter Gianna when the helicopter crashed. Those aboard the helicopter also included another player and parent.
 
@KingTrillaX | 53,056 followers
TMZ broke the news that Kobe and Gianna passed away before his family was informed.

I don’t know how we’re going to do it but we all need to find a way to get TMZ and Shade Room shut down. 🤷🏾‍♂️

Most people will remember Kobe as the magnificent athlete who inspired a whole generation of basketball players. But I will always remember him as a man who was much more than an athlete.

a father and his 13 year old daughter lost their lives today. a mother lost her husband and a child. 3 girls lost their father and a sister. if you think that's something to laugh and joke about, or a cause to promote your fancam, fuck you.

Two kids lost both parents and their sister today. This is beyond a tragedy. There are no words for the losses today.. but the Altobelli family deserves equal recognition and prayers today. So so so heartbreaking.

Top Tweets FAQ

How do you calculate what is a top tweet?

We use the number of retweets from the period of time displayed to rank the tweets.

Why are tweets with higher retweet counts ranked lower and from before the time period being shown?

We show the top tweets based upon the current retweet activity, so the original tweet may be hours or even days old (we limit it to 2x the period shown). In this way you can see what tweets are the most popular now, and have been created recently..

Are the results filtered in anyway?

We remove spam, bot and other unnatural activity using our own proprietry filtering tools, along with any tweets Twitter have marked as being potentially NSFW. There may still be some inappropriate tweets come through though, so please feel free to Let us know if you think there is content here that should not be

How do you deal with bots artificially promoting tweets?

Similar to removing spam tweets, we also will ignore any individual retweets from known bots when calculating a tweet's rank. In this way you can get a better idea of the real importance of a tweet, and not one influenced by artificial means. We are continually refining our process to improve the quality of results, and if you see anything you don't think should be present, please Let us know.

How do I find top tweets for my topic/language/country/state/city?

You can use our analytics tool to do complex analysis to get top tweets based upon a huge range of criteria. If you require something different, then please contact us and let us know what you have in mind.

How often is this information updated?

This data is updated every minute for the hourly data through to every half hour for the 24 hour results

Why aren't there 100 top tweets shown?

Sometimes there just isn't enough good tweets going around the globe, particularly when the Americas and Europe is mostly asleep, and for shorter time frames like 1 hour. We could include 100, but we figure you probably don't want to see 73 'top tweets' that are actually just bot induced spam.

Why are there some uncommon languages listed?

Determining the exact language of a tweet can be tricky. We try to use as many signals as possible to get tweets categorised correctly, but given the compact nature of Twitter there just isn't enough information to do it accurately all the time, and so unfortunately we can get it wrong sometimes. However someones there are some less common languages that are genuine top tweets, so we make sure we don't filter those out to ensure that when the less represented languages do have a popular tweet, we do give it appropraite presence.

Where can I find top tweets for my city/country?

Our local pages provide detail on current trends and top tweets for countries and cities across the globe.

Where can I find more top tweets containing videos, images, specific links or other or for my particular area of interest?

We can create custom solutions with more detail, more content and over different timeframes. Please contact us with details of what you are looking for.
