Texas Man Trying To Break Ellen’s Retweet Record
If you watched the Oscars Sunday you saw host Ellen break twitter with a selfie consisting of Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Lupita Nyong’o, Kevin Spacey, Julia Roberts, Channing Tatum, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Jared Leto and of course Ellen.
The tweet has over 3.3 million retweets to date and is the most retweeted tweet ever.
Well Today is reporting that a 65 year-old Texas man named Terry Shipman is now trying to break Ellen’s record.
He tweeted a photo of himself and his two dogs saying, “Lets see if we can beat the Oscar re-tweet,” and the tweet is off to a pretty good start. So far it has over 135,000 retweets.
The tweet started as a joke from Shipman to his 18 year-old son, but it started to gain ground. It even has some celebrity support.
So help a fellow Texan out and give Mr. Shipman a retweet. Lets break this record!
