LOS ANGELES, March 2 (UPI) -- Ellen DeGeneres just broke Twitter's record for the most-retweeted tweet of all time.

The Oscar host gathered a bevy of A-listers for her mid-ceremony selfie, including Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Meryl Street, Lupita Nyong'o, Nyong'o's brother, Jared Leto and Kevin Spacey.



About 35 minutes after DeGeneres tweeted the photo, she broke the record set by Barack Obama's "Four more years" tweet in 2012.


DeGeneres scored more than 1,200,000 retweets to rival Obama’s 780,000.
