Mohamed Henedy Most Retweeted Person in Egypt 2017

Egypt's Most Retweeted Personality of 2017 Might Surprise You


Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum of the UAE and King Salman of Saudi Arabia have both been named the most retweeted personalities from their respective countries for 2017. So you might be surprised to find who takes the prized for Egypt.

Instead of the country's leader, President Abdelfattah Elsisi, having the most shared post, comedic actor Mohamed Henry came out on top. The avid tweeter garnered over 110,000 retweets when a fan asked how many it would take for him to do a sequel to his movie Se3eedy fe Al Gam3a Amrekeya and he responded 100,000. He surpassed the required amount, of course, and claims the next two highest retweets from Egypt this year.

Also in the top 5 is @trikaofficial's World Cup posts.
