After the networks gave the presidential victory to President Barack Obama, his Twitter account sent out a few tweets talking about the victory. One of those tweets has been retweeted so much in the past hour that it's very probably the most popular tweet of al time.

The tweet, a touching Twitter picture (#nofilter) of the President and the First Lady embracing, simply says: Four more years. At over an hour since tweeting, it's been retweeted over 350,000 times and favorited 120,000 times. Previously (in an admittedly unscientific measurement of popularity), the most popular tweet of all time was one of Justin Bieber's inane tweets that went for 200,000 retweets. It's pretty clear that as the night goes on, Obama's tweet will continue to get retweeted and retweeted.

The most popular tweet of all time wasn't actually written by Obama though (he signs the one he writes himself with -bo). This one was:

DISCUSSION

I'm neither an Obama fan or a Romney supporter, I am a Libertarian. If there is one thing I love Obama for, that is his stable family and his well-spoken persona. We're in a country where families are constantly being torn apart left and right from divorce, unstable/abusive marriages, etc. While a majority of those happen in the African-American/Black community, it is great to see a family with those characteristics "make it to the top" with no adversity in their family. Also, Obama is a fantastic father from the way I've seen his daughters carry themselves on national tv. America needed this victory in a "visual" sense. Granted, policies from both Romney and Obama are crap, they're both corporate goons. I hope for the best next four years and hopefully this country will bring some bi-partisan agreements/bring in some Libertarians into Congress, so our voices can be heard.
