Obama’s ‘Four More Years’ Tweet is Most Popular of All Time

The tweet, which simply says, “Four more years,” accompanies a photo of Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama embracing. At the time of writing, it garnered more than 510,000 retweets — and that number is still rising rapidly. Both BuzzFeed and Mediabistro reported that Obama’s victory tweet gets the “all-time” distinction.
Another tweet from Obama, in which he thanks his supporters, is also one of the most popular, having been retweeted more than 144,000 times.
The microblogging network has shared some new stats from Election Day as well. It reported that there were 31 million tweets about the event, peaking at 327,452 tweets per minute when the results of the election were called by media — this makes this year’s election the most-tweeted-about day in history by far.
