At 3.3 million retweets, the Oscar selfie tweeted by the TV host in March 2014 is the most retweeted tweet ever.
So, to save her record, Ellen has proposed an interesting offer. In a segment from her show shared online, Ellen tells everyone about the selfie and her proposition. "I'm angry because I worked so hard to set that record," she says in the video. "Carter, I like your style and I wanna encourage you to dream big 'cause I think that's important," she adds.
She then proposes that whoever retweets Carter must also retweet her picture. That way she can still hold the record for most retweeted tweet ever. She goes on to make the offer even sweeter for Carter. If the Oscar selfie also makes it to 18 million through this deal, Ellen would present Carter with some gifts.
That's not all. To show that she means business, Ellen enlisted the help of Hollywood actor Bradley Cooper. Notice he's the man who clicked that selfie?
