Japanese billionaire creates the most shared tweet in history



The growing list of right to show off with money from the Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa includes Picassos, exclusive Bugatti cars and a ticket to travel on the lunar rocket Elon Musk.

You can now add to this collection the most retweet Twitter posting in history.

For the honor, the founder of Japan's second largest online shopping site, Zozo, will pay a total of 100 million yen ($ 920,000) to 100 lucky people who share the publication.

Seeking to be one of the randomly selected winners, Maezawa's public retweeked his publication a record 3.8 million times and gave him more than 900,000 "tanned".

The former retweets' monarch was a college student in the United States whose goal was to get free chicken nuggets for a year from the Wendy fast food franchise, according to Statista.

This publication had 3.58 million retweets and 990,000 "tanned".

Ellen DeGeneres' selfie with Hollywood stars at the 2014 Oscar, with Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, came in second with 3.3 million retweets.

"To participate, all you have to do is follow me and retweet this tweet," Maezawa wrote on January 5.

The tweet showed the silhouette of a man on a rocket passing in front of the full moon, in the purest style of the iconic image of the movie "ET."

Maezawa also said that its Zozotown shopping site reached 10 billion yen in volume of goods during a New Year sale.

The deal is the main source of $ 1.7 billion in net worth for this 43-year-old entrepreneur, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.
