While the movie world was abuzz with the Oscar early this morning (Indian time), Ellen Degeneres took Twitter by storm when a selfie tweeted by her became the most Retweeted Tweet of all time.

Previously, the record was held by Barack Obama who had shared his hug with wife Michelle Obama on 7th November 2012 after he won the elections.


With more than 2 millions RTs, Ellen’s tweet is far ahead of Obama’s tweet which managed to garner 780k RTs.

The selfie featured (from left to right): Jared Leto’s Eye (:P), Jennifer Lawrence, Channing Tatum, Meryl Streep, Ellen herself, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey, Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt, Lupita Nyong’o, Angelina Jolie and Lupita’s Brother Junior.

The tweet became so popular that it reportedly took Twitter down for several minutes. Well, that’s the power of Hollywood!
