Obama’s Tweet About Charlottesville Is the Most Liked Ever on Twitter

Following the violence in Charlottesville last weekend when white supremacists clashed with liberal counter-protestors, Barack Obama posted a tweet promoting a message of peace, love, unity and respect.

The tweet is now officially the most liked Tweet in the history of the social network. Ever. And, when you take a look at it, its easy to see why.

The tweet quoted the late former President of South Africa Nelson Mandela and featured an image of Obama smiling with a group of kids from different racial backgrounds. It was taken by the former White House photographer, Pete Souza.

Quoting Mandela’s autobiography, The Long Walk To Freedom, the tweet read: “No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin or his background or his religion.”

At the time of writing, it had been liked more than four million times since it was posted on 13 August. Twitter told the BBC that the tweet reached the milestone at 01:07 GMT yesterday.

Before that, the most liked tweet was one published by Ariana Grande. She was expressing condolences after the Manchester Arena terror attack last May.

Why are we so obsessed with Twitter all of a sudden? Well the more eagle-eyed among you may have noticed that Ummahsonic is now on twitter! So why not head over there and start tweeting us…
