Track in Real Time What People Are Giving Up for Lent in 2023

See the top 100 things people are giving up for Lent in 2023 on Twitter, continually updated through February 24, 2023. You can also use the Historical Lent Tracker to see trends since 2009, though 2023 is still in flux, so I wouldn’t draw any conclusions about 2023 yet.

As I write this post, with about 660 tweets analyzed, perennial favorites “twitter,” “social networking,” and “alcohol” lead the list. Right now, “sugar” is at #5, a much-higher showing than it usually has; we’ll see if it holds its place through the week.

I expect “twitter” to run higher this year given some of its recent, polarizing decisions. Twitter has also talked about disabling its API, upon which the Twitter Lent Tracker depends, any day now, so hopefully the Tracker will survive the week.

Look for the usual post-mortem on February 25, 2023.
