One Direction & Ellen DeGeneres Top The 10 Most Popular Tweets Of All Time! See Who Else Made The List!

no title

Ten years ago, a man named Jack Dorsey changed the Internet forever by setting up the very first Twitter account!

A decade and billions of tweets later, the social media site has become a hub for breaking news, mundane rantings, and personal interactions between fans and the celebrities they adore.

Even though it seems like there are way too many tweets to keep track of (half of which are probably Kanye West‘s), tracking website Favstar compiled a list of the 10 most retweeted tweets of all time!

Believe it or not, no Kardashians made the cut for the 10 most popular tweets (after all, they’re more of an Instagram family) though members of One Direction ended up filling HALF the list!

Ch-ch-check out the top 10 most popular tweets (below) to see who took the number one spot…

10. Andrew Malcolm

Most tweets for a good cause end up racking up a lot of retweets. What’s better than feeling like you’ve done good just by clicking a button? You’re welcome, hungry dogs!

9. Zayn Malik


Just a week before he departed 1D, Zayn shot this tweet at his haters (that he planned on having in one week) by declaring his love for Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards.

We all remember how that turned out

8. Harry Styles

The 1D singer who temporarily dated Taylor Swift quoted a Taylor Swift lyric on his 22nd birthday. Not super original, but enough to send fans into a frenzy.

7. Niall Horan


Before he was a member of one direction, Niall was just an aspiring singer who applied to be on British singing show the X Factor. The Irish crooner’s tweet hoping his audition worked out has retroactively racked up a lot of retweets. And yes, we think it worked out.

6. Barack Obama


Aside from chart-topping boy bands, other people happen to use Twitter, too — like President Obama! On the night he was reelected in 2012, Obama’s staff posted a photo of POTUS embracing Michelle Obama, and it became the most retweeted-tweet ever at the time.

5. Harry Styles


Directioners were at an all-time-low after Zayn Malik departed the group last March. But Harry tried to calm the storm with his catchphrase “all the love,” which he often uses to sign off tweets.

3 & 4. Denny Januar Ali


Indonesian political analyst Denny Januar Ali managed to make the list with his political declarations in a pair of tweets. In the first, he backs Indonesian presidential candidate Joko “Jokowi” Widodo. In the second, he calls for an end to discrimination — pictured with a group of adorable kids whose shirts spell out “love.”

2. Louis Tomlinson


Back in 2011, Louis Tomlinson embraced his bromance with fellow 1D member Harry Styles in this 2011 tweet, as fans started shipping the two singers as “Larry.”

1. Ellen DeGeneres


Who could forget this star-studded selfie from the 2014 Oscars? Ellen was joined by Meryl Streep, Bradley Cooper, Lupita Nyong’o, Jennifer Lawrence, Brad Pitt, Kevin Spacey and so many other A-listers that it literally broke Twitter and still reigns supreme as the most popular tweet of all time!

Did YOU RT any of these??
