Aug 16, 2017  •  Post A Comment

A Twitter post that went out a few days ago has become the most liked tweet of all time, according to the social media site. The tweet, which you can see below, was posted by Barack Obama in response to the violence in Charlottesville, Va.

“The former president’s tweet, sent out Saturday evening, paired a quote from Nelson Mandela’s 1994 autobiography, ‘Long Walk to Freedom,’ with a picture of Mr. Obama smiling up at a diverse group of young children,” The New York Times reports. “It broke the record at about 10:07 Tuesday evening, a Twitter spokesman said, surpassing a tweet from Ariana Grande earlier this year reacting to a terrorist attack at her concert in Manchester, England.”

The photo was reportedly taken in 2011 by Pete Souza, who was the White House photographer at the time. It was taken at a day care facility in Bethesda, Md., the report notes.
