Barack Obama Breaks Twitter Record

Former US President Barack Obama has set the record for the most liked tweet in the history, with his post quoting Nelson Mandela. The post picked up more than 3 million likes on Twitter.

The tweet was posted on Sunday, but, the tweet reached the milestone on Thursday, breaking the previous record held by singer Ariana Grande after a bombing at one of her concerts in the English city of Manchester.

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion…” Obama wrote, quoting the late South African president.

The picture attached to the post shows Obama playing with toddlers of different racial backgrounds.

Obama, posted the tweet in the context of deadly white supremacist violence in the town of Charlottesville, Virginia.

32-year-old Heather Heyer was killed when a man drove a car into a crowd of anti-hate protesters on Saturday.

Later, the police arrested white supremacist James Fields Jr and charged him with second-degree murder, as well as other charges.

In history, the six of the top 10 liked tweets is authored by Obama.

The present US President Donald Trump, is a more prolific Twitter user but has yet to reach the Democrat’s popularity on social media.

Trump’s reaction to the violence in Charlottesville stood in stark contrast to Obama.

The 45th president of the US has repeatedly blamed both sides for the violence but also said there were “very fine” people on each side.
