EDISON -

Top morning business and technology headlines for Dec. 6, 2017:

  • President Donald Trump was the world’s most tweeted about leader in 2017, but his tweets were not the most popular, according to Twitter. The social media network says former President Barack Obama had two out of the 10 most re-tweeted posts this year. However, no one could catch Carter Wilkerson, a teenager whose request for a year’s worth of free Wendy’s chicken nuggets topped the chart with 3.6 million re-tweets.
  • UPS is reportedly struggling to keep up with shipments after record sales on Cyber Monday. The parcel service handles packages from numerous retailers, including Amazon, Walmart and Macy’s.
  • Lamborghini has introduced the Urus, the world's fastest SUV. It goes from zero to 62 mph in 3.6 seconds and can hit top speeds of 190 mph. It can fit five people and will arrive in the U.S. next spring. The SUV’s base price is $200,000.
