Top 10 Most Popular Tweets To 2014

Following on from last night’s incredible Oscars ceremony, we take a look at some of the most popular tweets in twitter history. After the legendary Ellen DeGeneres temporarily broke Twitter on Sunday night, due to her Oscar’s tweet which caused an uproar of online traffic, we wondered who and what else really makes users on Twitter go crazy!

The tweet itself just shows the absolute power Twitter holds and how powerful we as users of the site can be. By joining together we can instantly share messages across the globe, whether it is positive or negative; although in this case all positive!

With large fan bases and followings celebrities clearly show how much support they have and regardless of what they say they still gain attention and retweets by the thousands.

Below are the top 10 most re-tweeted tweets to date…


By the looks of things it seems like the best and easiest way to gain thousands of retweets is to be famous, and more specifically… A member of One Direction. But with a big enough following and idea, you could give it a go!

All in all though, we aren’t complaining too much as quite often they are massively entertaining… Hats off to Ellen!
