Ellen DeGeneres Breaks Twitter With Truly Epic Oscars Selfie

The Oscar host's photo with Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita Nyong'o, Jared Leto, and more beat out Obama's 2012 tweet for the record

Remember that selfie that 2014 Academy Awards host Ellen DeGeneres took during Sunday night's ceremony? You know, the one with Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita Nyong'o, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Meryl Streep, Jared Leto, and Kevin Spacey in it? Ummm, pretty sure you did, as it's the most retweeted tweet of all time. Ever. Of all the tweets. ALL OF THEM.

Within less than an hour, this star-studded moment of #nofilter flawlessness had surpassed the previously most retweeted tweet of all time. That would be President Barack Obama's celebratory, election-night message coupled with a photo of him hugging his wife, Michelle.

Four more years.

So, technically Obama won't be running again in 2016. (Thanks, term limits.) But, if he were, we think he'd quickly tap Ellen as his senior social media campaign manager. Clearly, she knows how to get out the RT.
