Game of Thrones was one of the top trending shows on Twitter this year

This year has been a big year for everyone, from major surprises in global politics to The Bachelor's chocolate bath that will remain forever stained in Australians' minds.

2016 was huge for politics, resulting in the ever-present #auspol discussion being joined by #ausvotes at the top of the Aussie trends chart. Australians also jumped into the global political conversation around #Brexit and the US #ElectionNight.

However there was still plenty of time for the lighter side of life on Twitter this year in Australia with #PokemonGo and sporting events like #Rio2016 and the #ausopen, sparking a tonne of conversation.

Now, Twitter has revealed how 2016 unfolded for Australian users, including how we reacted to major events and what TV shows were the most discussed. Check out ABC which ruled the hashtag roost.
