Billions of people watched the 2014 Oscars around the world, so it’s no surprise that when host Ellen DeGeneres took a selfie with Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Kevin Spacey, Bradley Cooper and more, it was going to be popular. How popular? It broke Twitter.
Ellen posted this to her Twitter account and in just one hour it had over 1 million retweets:

It was so popular, Ellen’s Twitter feed was momentarily down. And, this is just the beginning, that number will grow and could even pass 2 million by the time all is said and done.
