The Selfie Seen Around the World

A star-studded Selfie Tweeted on Sunday by Oscar Awards host Ellen Degeneres broke a Twitter record that was previously held by U.S. President Barack Obama.

“We just crashed and broke Twitter. We have made history,” announced Degeneres after her Tweet was retweeted over one million times by Twitter users during the Oscar Awards telecast Sunday night.

Included in the All-Star Selfie were Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Bradley Cooper (who actually snapped the Selfie), Kevin Spacey, Lupita Nyong’o and her bespectacled brother, and Angelina Jolie, among others.

The previous record of 781,000 retweets was set by Obama’s reelection victory Tweet featuring an image of the president embracing the first lady Michelle Obama. The caption read “Four More Years”. Obama’s Twitter record lasted less than 2 years.

    I loved this moment, so cute! Gotta love selfies! Me and Tyler Perry just did one together lol. :yes:

    I love Ellen. She had me laughing especially when she was passing out pizza haha!

    Nice picture, but the only reason it beat President Obamas picture was because all of the jokes being made. People asking who is that? Referring to Lupitas brother. Several people on my TL made reference to “his Black ass” ruining the picture. Yeah I had to unfollow a few. So, much like Mileys VMA performance receiving the most mentions on twitter, it was mainly for the wrong reasons :-/

  • mrsloveleigh

    Why do i think it’s funny that Sandra said Obama’s record lasted less than 2 yrs. LOL. I would think 2 yrs is a long time to hold that type of record.

    In reference to the brother…please! Let me sit in a room full of celebs and get a chance to take a selfie with them, I would be front and center with all smiles regardless of my celeb sibling! That probably was a dream come true for him….I love it! LOL!
