President Obama’s Election Victory Tweet Becomes Most Retweeted Of All Time

Barack Obama has been re-elected as President of the United States of America and his victory tweet has quickly become the most-retweeted message in Twitter’s history.

Obama’s simple message – “Four more years.” – accompanied by a photograph of the President embracing his wife, has now been shared on Twitter more than half a million times.

The record was set just 22 minutes after the tweet was posted.

Another Obama victory tweet – “This happened because of you.” – has racked up over 213,000 retweets, which is good enough for second place all-time on Twitter.

And a third message has been retweeted more than 140,000 times, ranking it fourth.

Obama’s presidential and (admittedly mostly) Twitter win has come at the expense of Justin Bieber, who drops down to third-place all time on Twitter. For now.
