Ellen DeGeneres Oscar Selfie Sets Twitter Record with 2 Million Retweets: See it Here!

Ellen DeGeneres made history last night at the Oscars ... with this selfie, which was retweeted more than any other photo in the history of Twitter, BY FAR.

Taking a look at it below, you can sort of see why:

Ellen DeGeneres Oscar Selfie

Ellen's Oscar selfie quickly eclipsed Barack Obama’s historic "four more years" re-election tweet en route to nearly three times as many retweets (2,089,000).

The President's photo of himself embracing wife Michelle garnered just 780,000 after the 2012 presidential election results were made official. So weak.

Of course, Twitter use has been growing since then; the network is 30 percent bigger than during Obama’s epic hug. Also, he only won 51 percent of the vote!

Celebrity love-fests, on the flip side, appeal to Republicans and Democrats alike. Meryl Streep, Brad Pitt, Kevin Spacey and Bradley Cooper are in the pic!

There's also America's Sweetheart. If Jennifer Lawrence falling at the Oscars goes viral, so will Jennifer Lawrence looking adorable next to a beaming Ellen.

She deserves a special place among the 2014 Academy Award winners, for sure. Speaking of which ... the GIFs below could probably get 1 million too ...
