Ellen DeGeneres' A-List Selfie Broke Twitter Last Night
Ellen DeGeneres set a world record last night. The Oscar host's jampacked A-list selfie was retweeted more than two and a half million times, and actually caused Twitter to go down briefly.
Ellen, who whipped out her Samsung Galaxy smartphone several times during the broadcast (Samsung was a sponsor), initially was taking a selfie with American Hustle actor Bradley Cooper. They were joined by a host of other big name celebs however, including Brad Pitt, Jared Leto, Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep.
If only Bradley's arm was longer. Best photo ever. #oscars pic.twitter.com/C9U5NOtGapThe selfie was retweeted more than one million times in less than an hour, and broke the previous record for retweets held by President Barack Obama.
