World News | Twitter Wins the 2012 US Election

World News – yes, Obama is the US President for the next 4 years but more importantly the he has broken the record for the most retweets of all time. His official victory announcement – a picture of him hugging his wife Michelle with the caption: “four more years” – was retweeted over 320,000 times and still rising. The record up until then had been Justin Beiber’s tweet about a young girl dying of cancer. This scored more than 223,000 retweets.

For those who don’t know what a retweet is, and still care, it’s the reposting of someone’s original tweet. A tweet is of course a message sent by a Twit using the Twitter service 🙂
