The caption accompanying the 1950’s selfie reads as follows.

“Throwback Thursday – I was doing selfies 60 years before you Facebook folks. Eat your heart out Ellen!”

Colin Powell is referring to Ellen’s Oscar selfie, which broke Twitter (TWTR[5]) records when it got Retweeted 3.3 million[6] times.

A picture of President Barack Obama hugging his wife after the 2012 election was the most Retweeted photo[7] before Ellen’s selfie broke that record.

Obama also recently showed off his fun side[8] during a interview with Zach Galifianakis on his Funny or Die show Between Two Ferns.
