BEAUMONT, TX – Ellen DeGeneres and crew at the Oscars selfie virtually broke Twitter and holds the re-tweet record with over 3.3 million re-tweets.

Terry Shipman from Beaumont tweeted this photo:

The senior’s selfie plan is to outshine Ellen and become a twitter god, and Terry’s not pulling any punches.

Terry’s becoming twitter famous. It’s even hard to give an accurate number of re-tweets. Last check was over 140,000 and growing by the second. That’s not all, Terry’s up to nearly 7400 followers! All for a man who has only ever tweeted seven times.

Mr. Shipman’s not the only star, those two now popular pups Max and Oreo are biting at the ankles of stardom as well.
