Track What People Are Giving Up for Lent on Twitter in 2024

See the top 100 things people are giving up for Lent in 2024 on Twitter (i.e., X), which will be updated through February 16, 2024. You can also use the Historical Lent Tracker to see trends since 2009, though 2024 is still in flux, so I wouldn’t draw any conclusions about 2024 yet.

As I write this post on Monday morning, with about 350 tweets analyzed, “social networking,” “twitter,” and “chocolate” lead the list.

This year, since it would cost me $5,000 to use Twitter’s API to track what’s previously been free for the Lent Tracker, I’m having to take a more manual and sampled approach to tweets, which also means the results won’t be available in realtime the way they have been in years past; you can expect them to be updated a few times per day.

Look for the usual post-mortem on February 17, 2024.
