Obama’s Response To Charlottesville Violence Is Now The Most Liked Tweet In Twitter’s History





Former President Obama’s tweet sharing a quote from Nelson Mandela that condemned racism, which was posted just hours after the Charlottesville tragedy, became the most-liked tweet of all time on Tuesday night with more than 2.7 million likes.

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion … People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love … For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite,” Obama said, quoting former South African president Nelson Mandela in tweets.

The first tweet, which shows a picture of Obama smiling at four children, has been retweeted more than 1.1 million times and liked 2.764 million times as of Tuesday evening.



The post became the most liked tweet of all time, surpassing Ariana Grande’s message to fans after a deadly explosion at her concert in Manchester earlier this year.

The tweet also ranks No. 7 among the most retweeted tweets according to Favstar, a tweet tracking site.
