The twerk-pocalypse of 2013 really started when Miley Cyrus twerked and twitched her way through her music video for "We Can't Stop." As the song suggests, Miley just kept on twerking. She twerked at the VMAs, she twerked in music videos for Mike Will Made-It and Justin Bieber, she even twerked on Santa Claus. And, in the process, she caused a chain reaction of twerking across the nation. Let's look back at the twerk seen 'round the world and all the other instances that came after in 2013.
