Ellen’s Oscar selfie is now the most popular tweet in history
She did it!
It’s the Oscars, and it’s 2014, so this happened. Host Ellen DeGeneres took a selfie with too many stars to count—hey, Brad Pitt! Julia Roberts! Best actor in a supporting role Jared Leto! Best actress in a supporting role Lupita Nyong’o!—and asked Twitter to turn it into the most retweeted tweet in tweet history.

That was a tall order. She had none other than President Obama to beat.
Obama’s four more years tweet retweeted 778k times, the most ever. Ellen’s is at 152k so far…

But she did it: In just 35 minutes, she hit 800,000 retweets. By 10:50pm ET, she had 1 million.
There was so much buzz, Twitter went down briefly.
