Most Retweeted Tweet of All Time Exceeded 2.5 Million RTs in 12 Hours

Yesterday, in addition to the Carnival, it was the award of the Oscar. If you missed it, the big winner was 12 Years a Slave, but let’s leave aside entertainment for experts and focus on our area. In addition to the long, Ellen DeGeneres, the host of the night, also took a kind of premium home: the authorship of the most tweeted tweet of all time.

 

Until yesterday, the record was President Barack Obama, who won almost 800 000 RTs with the tweet of his re-election:

About a year and a half later, Ellen selfie with Hollywood stars surpassed too off the president. 12 hours after its publication, it had more than 2.5 million of RTs:

IF ONLY BRADLEY’S ARM WAS LONGER. BEST PHOTO EVER. #OSCARSPIC.TWITTER.COM/C9U5NOTGAP

It will be hard to overcome this, huh?

In a backstage gossip related to such selfie, she was taken with a Galaxy Note 3 smartphone that appeared several times during the night in the hands of the presenter in an obvious (and multimillionaire) share of Samsung at the awards. But behind the scenes, Ellen returned to take pictures with your iPhone. Samsung did not say anything about the smartphone used “far” from the spotlight, but we imagine it has not taken very well…
