Ellen DeGeneres gains nearly 1.3 million followers in 24 hours, hits 1m, 2m & 3m Retweet mark

In a world where Russia is on the brink of starting WW3 (a bit sensationalist, I'm sorry) and there are laws trying to erode the rights of homosexuals and minorities, it seems a bit silly to try and categorize something like this in the same category as "news" - though that's the world we live in and I'm doing it nonetheless.

As a result of one star-studded selfie, Ellen DeGeneres managed to post the first image on Twitter to hit the 1 million Retweet mark - subsequently setting the bar impossibly high with her crossing the 2 million and finally 3 million Retweet mark early this morning.

If that weren't enough, she also managed to gain nearly 1.3 million followers in ONE DAY. I'm a bit of a dork when it comes to social stats, so these numbers are incredibly astounding to me - though I could imagine that anyone with a general sense of numbers could understand how remarkable that feat really is.

I figured I would share because data is cool; and, to put all of this in perspective, the image that held the Retweet record prior to this image was the inauguration of Barack Obama at less than 800,000

    If only she had thought to put an affiliate link in the tweet or a URL to a squeeze page. IM on steroids!

    That's ridiculous! Ha @ David - Ya, no kidding, right? What's even more ridiculous is that she gained about as many followers in just one single day, about as much as the average person's income after taxes that they will make in their entire life! OR that she gained more followers in one day, that is nearly 3 times the entire population of the Belize. Gotta love social media.
