Ellen DeGeneres’ selfie tweet from the Oscar awards night may have broken Twitter, and then broke President Obama’s record for most retweeted picture.

The idea came from Raleigh-Durham talk radio show host KC O’Dea, who put out this challenge: “If one of the bases in the area recreates Ellen’s picture, I’ll post it on Twitter and try and get it retweeted more times than Ellen’s.”

Compare the two images below:
