GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - President Obama’s fans set a new record on Twitter for the number of times that others re-tweeted his message – and a Green Bay Packers’ player who held the old record took notice.
Obama tweeted “Four more years” after learning that he was re-elected to a second term.
As of mid-morning Wednesday, it’s been re-tweeted over 662,000 times – busting the old mark set in late September by Packers’ guard TJ Lang.
That was on the night the Packers lost at Seattle, because a replacement ref blew an interception call in the end zone. Lang told the NFL to fine him and use the money to “pay the regular refs.” On Wednesday, Lang tweeted quote, “Congrats to Mr. President, but did you really have to shatter my re-tweet record? Back to the drawing board.”
