A big congrats goes out to Ellen DeGeneres for her Oscar Selfie retweet efforts on Twitter. She smashed the previous record held by Barak Obama.

Ellen quickly passed 778,508 retweets. It took about 30 minutes for her to reach the 810,000 retweet mark. There was a brief moment where Twitter appeared to be having some issues handling the volume. But Twitter’s services were quickly restored.

Barak Obama held the pervious retweet record with this tweet announcing that he had won his second term as President of the United States.

  • Super proud of what Dylan has put to work from what he has learned from his baseball coaches. His work and the work put in by his team mates has proven itself at this baseball tournament. Go South Wake Lightning!
  • Happy 14th Birthday, Dylan! We love you so much. You're growing up so fast. This year is going to a big transition year as you go into high school in the fall. An exciting journey is ahead. We will be here for you along the way.
  • Dylan was super excited to get a new bat bag for his birthday today. But it's not just any bat bag. It's a Boombah!
  • I love working in Downtown Raleigh. There's the right amount of things happening all around you. And if you take a moment to look up, there's this incredible blue sky above.
  • Gavin had a number of hits this weekend at the baseball tournament this weekend. But this is just the beginning of his baseball story.
  • In so many ways Baseball is like life. It's unpredictable, requires practice, has winners and losers, and needs players to work together as a team.
  • Acres and acres of tobacco just after a heavy afternoon rain storm. It's a sight to see when you're driving home from baseball practice.
  • Gavin had his last home baseball game of the spring season. Here he is with Coach Charles Chrismon. His 8U team won all but one game this season. These kids have developed so much over these past few months thanks to the coaches and parents who want to help these kids find their love for baseball. I hope they keep playing. Baseball offers a lot to teach them about life.
