Ellen just set up the best selfie of all time...and broke Twitter

Does this spell the end of the selfie? Nobody can do better than this.

JARED LETO, JENNIFER Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Bradley Cooper, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Lupita Nyong’o (and her brother), Kevin Spacey, Julia Roberts and Channing Tatum.

Yes, they are the people that Ellen gathered for what will be henceforth known as the Best Selfie of All Time.

We can all give up now.


Ellen’s own tweet with the photo is now the most re-tweeted tweet of all time, surpassing Barack Obama’s Four More Years in just 40 minutes with over 890,000 RTs.

On surpassing one million tweets, it broke Twitter as the micro-blogging site doesn’t have room for seven figures.

By 5.45am (or bedtime as is now calling it), it had been RT’d more than 2,150,000 times.
