By Sewe Ishola,
Former US president, Barack Obama’s tweet on the latest events at Charlottesville, US has become the Most-Liked Tweet Ever.
Obama sent out this tweet on Saturday evening, while reacting to the racist protests, which has left one dead with many injured.
The former president paired a quote from Nelson Mandela’s 1994 autobiography, “Long Walk to Freedom,” with a picture of himself smiling up at a diverse group of toddlers.

It broke the record at about 10:07 Tuesday evening, a Twitter spokesman said, surpassing a previous tweet from Singer, Ariana Grande earlier this year on a terrorist attack at her concert in Manchester, England.
Mr. Obama’s tweet passed Ms. Grande’s on the same day that Mr. Trump repeated his criticism of “both sides” in Charlottesville in an impromptu question-and-answer session.
The most retweeted post of all time came earlier this year when a Nevada teenager asked Twitter users to help him win a free year of Wendy’s chicken nuggets.
