Ellen DeGeneres' celebrity-studded selfie from the most-watched Oscars telecast in a decade was an unforgettable social media moment. No social media moment was bigger than when host DeGeneres briefly caused Twitter to crash after going into the audience and asking Bradley Cooper to take a picture with several other stars crowding around.

Besides Cooper and DeGeneres, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, Kevin Spacey, Julia Roberts, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt also crowded into the frame. She asked viewers to help her set a retweet record, and they quickly complied. It received more than a million retweets within the first hour, and within 24 hours, it had been retweeted some 2.8 million times, shattering the previous record of 810,000 retweets for the photo of President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama hugging after the 2012 election.

Within hours of the photo being published, memes and parodies began to emerge on social media networks.

Even the Simpsons creator Matt Groening posted a photo on Homer Simpson's official account. He wrote, "The ugly true story of that Oscar selfie can finally be told! Let's break Twitter again. Look for Bart."
