The year that was 2016 will be remembered for a whole slew of reasons, many of which almost all of us are happy to see far in the rearview (RIP David Bowie). As the calendar turns and the ball drops sending us into 2017, it’s time to pull out those magic 8 balls and ask what the year has in store for us.  What better way to do that than via twitter prognostications.
