Is this the most star-packed selfie of all time?
During Sunday’s Oscars, host Ellen DeGeneres enlisted a score of A-list audience members to join her for a photo. She said she wanted it to become the most retweeted photo of all time.
Shortly after the epic selfie posted, Twitter experienced intermittent outages. The photo had been retweeted more than 750,000 times in its first 45 minutes. After one hour, it topped the previous record-holder for most retweets — a tweet from President Barack Obama after he won the 2012 election. That Obama tweet was retweeted a little more than 780,000 times.
