Ellen Tweets the Most Retweeted Tweet Ever

retweeted tweetEveryday tweets are retweeted — some hundreds, some thousands of times. But what about over 966,000+ times? That’s what a tweet Ellen DeGeneres (@theellenshow) tweeted is currently at (and the number keeps increasing by the second). Ellen hosted the Academy Awards last night, and tweeted various moments from the show.

So, what does it take to get the most retweeted tweet? Just grab your favorite A-list Hollywood friends at the Oscars, hand your phone to Bradley Cooper, and take a selfie of the whole group. And what do you end up getting? A photo of Hollywood’s elite and the most retweeted pic in the history of Twitter. Surely she will pass the one million mark with this one!

So who appeared in said selfie?

That’s right: Jared Leto, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Bradley Cooper, Julia Roberts, Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Lupita Nyong’o, Channing Tatum and more all crammed into the pic — which is said to have crashed Twitter at one point.

Side note: Each time I keep checking the retweet number, it keeps jumping! When I started writing this, it was at 544k!  I’ll keep track over the next few hours below….
