Through Twitter monitoring we have the most retweeted image ever check out this great shop of all your favorite celebrities together in one great shot!
Step aside Barack Obama. Before last night’s Academy Awards group shot above, this tweet by Barack Obama (6 Nov 2012) was the most retweeted photo of all time with 781,514 retweets.
That record was completely obliterated last night when Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres took the snap above (actually it was Bradley Cooper who took it) and shared it on Twitter. As of this posting, the photo has been retweeted 2,939,373 times. The viral image even briefly crashed Twitter as it spread through the network at breakneck speeds.
For those curious, the following people (from left) are in the photo: Jennifer Lawrence, Channing Tatum, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ellen DeGeneres, Kevin Spacey, Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt, Lupita Nyong’o and her brother and Angelina Jolie (with hand in front of face). The cut-off person far left? Jared Leto.

Twitter Monitoring – The Most Retweeted Photo Ever
Twitter is an online social networking and microblogging service that enables users to send and read “tweets”, which are text messages limited to 140 characters. Registered users can read and post tweets, but unregistered users can only read them. Users access Twitter through the website interface, SMS, or mobile device app. Twitter Inc. is based in San Francisco and has offices in New York City, Boston, San Antonio and Detroit.
Twitter was created in March 2006 by Jack Dorsey, Evan Williams, Biz Stone and Noah Glass and by July 2006, the site was launched. The service rapidly gained worldwide popularity, with 500 million registered users in 2012, who posted 340 million tweets per day. The service also handled 1.6 billion search queries per day. Twitter is now one of the ten most-visited websites, and has been described as “the SMS of the Internet.” It is one of the most successful startup companies of all time by market capitalization, revenue, growth and cultural impact.
