History was made tonight at the Oscars in the form of a selfie by Ellen DeGeneres. In just a matter of minutes this one picture was taking off and within 30 minutes it closing in on the record originally held by Barack Obama. Then it happened, and it’s still happening with over 1.2M Retweets (at the time of this post)
I’m sure there will be many posts coming out in the next few days analyzing the social engagement of the event and this specific tweet. I think that the Oscars just set the bar for every awards show to meet.
