The Selfie that Broke Twitter During the Oscars

Ellen hosted the Academy Awards last night and made them anything but dull.

The talk show host brought personality and life to the award show that some usually call stiff and boring. 

Ellen, a prolific tweeter wanted to break a record…get the most retweets on a picture. The photo which started off as just her and Meryl Streep soon expanded to include Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Jennifer Lawrence, Kevin Spacey and Bradley Cooper. 

It did in fact break a record, oh and twitter. 

With 1,076,971 retweets in less than a hour and ultimately caused twitter to crash for a few minutes. 

It now has 2,582,925 retweets.
