#YearOnTwitter: A Look Back At 2013

It’s that time of year: sleigh bells are jingling, halls are being decked – and everyone from media sites to social networks are rolling out their 2013 Year in Review lists.

Twitter, too. But instead of a tired “Top 10” approach, it’s once again published a slick, responsive site that lets you explore each month of 2013 through hashtags and trending topics.

For example:

When you click on a hashtag or topic on the left, you can scroll through specific tweets on the right, complete with images.

In addition to a month-by-month look back at highlights and stand-out Twitter moments, you can explore:

  • News: See updates and opinions about the global events and breaking stories close by or far away.
  • Entertainment: Visit the red carpets and studio sets to get closer to your favorite stars, shows, and stories.
  • Sports: Hear the roar of the crowd on Twitter during every kind of sporting event around the world.
  • Showcase: Here, you’ll find the best tweets of the year, hand-picked by selected publishing partners.

You can also, for the first time, embed any of the custom timelines from the 2013 Twitter Year in Review. Like so:

Lastly, you can navigate to past Twitter Years in Review, back to 2010. Interesting for comparison’s sake.
