16 The Launch of Byte

When Vine was launched, it gained a lot of usage from millions. It was an app with 6 second looping videos. Unfortunately Twitter killed it off after 4 years. TikTok (which has 15-60 second looping videos) seemed to try replacing it though it failed at that. Thankfully the original creator practically brought it back with Byte, a new app with looping videos also 6 seconds long & has monetization which is a key part to why a lack of led to Vine shutting down. R.I.P. Vine 2013-2017 & welcome back (Byte).

22 Biden Declared Winner of the U.S. Presidential Election

23 Guanare Prison Riot
24 Second Nagorno-Karabakh War

This particular war was unnoticed by many in 2020 due to the planet being obsessed with coronavirus, Black Lives Matter and the American election.
The region (which is internationally recognized as part of Azerbaijan) had been occupied by Armenia since 1994 but in this war Azerbaijan regained most of the land and the war is more significant than most assume for four reasons.

1. The war is a proxy-war between Russia and Turkey due to Armenia being an ally of Russia and Azerbaijan being an ally of Turkey.

2. The war was fought with drones and cyberwarfare and is very much a glimpse of the future of warfare, similar to how the American Civil War foreshadowed the warfare of the 20th century.

3. The war demonstrated that a frozen conflict can end with a nation regaining their land. We can assume that Georgia, Moldova, Morocco and Ukraine (four nations whom Azerbaijan has close relations with) can learn many lessons from Azerbaijan's victory.

4. Speaking of Ukraine, the conflict foreshadowed the 2022 war between Russia and Ukraine.
