The Most retweeted selfie ever!

The tweet retweeted around the world!

Last night at the Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres broke President Obama’s record for retweets with her infamous selfie below.


In the picture were famous actors Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Bradle

y Cooper, Angelina Jolie, and Meryl Streep. The image from the Oscars was retweeted over 2.7 million times, crushing Obama’s record of his “4 More Years” selfie when re-elected.

When tweeting, retweets are the fastest way in which to grow and expand your community. Ellen’s selfie actually shut down Twitter because of the amount of activity. It just shows you how far public opinion and use of social media has come. Last night not only were the superstars of Hollywood enjoying the Oscars, but 2.7 million more viewers were apart of history as well!
