Obama’s #Charlottesville tweet is going extra viral
Former U.S. president Barack Obama‘s response to the #Charlottesville protests by white nationalists may become the most popular tweet in the history of the social network.
Earlier on Tuesday, it was the third most popular, behind Ellen DeGeneres‘ Oscars 2014 selfie (2.4m “likes” and 3.4m retweets) and Ariana Grande‘s message to her fans that she was “broken” after the tragic attack on her concert venue in Manchester on May 22, 2017 (2.7m “likes” & 1.1m retweets)
The tweet has however surpassed Ellen DeGeneres’ in terms of “likes” and is now the second most “liked” tweet of all time
