It's fair to say that Ellen DeGeneres phoned in her Oscar hosting duties, literally, from her Samsung. DeGeneres found time while hosting the Academy awards to also win Twitter by obliterating the record for most retweets. Her epic selfie with nearly a dozen other celebrities racked up more than 1 million retweets in under 30 minutes. DeGeneres broke the record held by President Obama after his historic 2012 election, which peaked at just under 780,000 retweets.
