A Four Year-Old Tweet From One Direction Just Leapt Past Obama’s Four More Years Tweet To Be The Second Most Popular Ever
Try explaining this to Grandma: A member of boy band One Direction just surpassed Barack Obama with the second-most retweeted tweet of all-time.
Barack Obama's "Four More Years" tweet was edged out of its silver medal spot by One Direction member Louis Tomlinson, whose "Always in my heart @Harry_Styles. Yours sincerely, Louis" tweet got over 770,000 retweets.
