Ellen managed to break the record for most retweets ever by some margin at last night's Oscars. Her selfie, shown above, has chalked up well over 2 million retweets and counting.

The new tweet beats President Obama's previous record—achieved when he posted a picture of him and the First Lady when he won the 2012 presidential elections—which scored 779,460 retweets. In fact, the volume of retweets of the latest record even caused a "brief service issue" on Twitter.

Ellen's selfie was captured on a Samsung, though she was apparently using an iPhone backstage all night. Oops. [Twitter]
