The world record for the most retweeted tweet has been broken. If you remember, the previous record holder was held by Carter Wilkerson for asking Wendy’s to give him a year supply of Nuggets.
The new record is held by Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa. He posted a tweet promising to give 1 million yen to 100 people who retweet and follow him. (1 million yen = 12,453.30 SGD) The tweet has currently more than 5.4 million retweets.
Personally, I’m a bit disappointed. It is sad to see the most retweeted tweet title being bought using
There’s no doubt that Yusaku Maezawa will honour his tweet and give out 1 million yet to 100 people. But the problem with this is that we can be sure there will be scammers trying to copy him. It’s not every day that a billionaire give out free money on social media.
