There's a new guy taking over the Twitter world!


Mitt Romney wasn't the only guy President Barack Obama beat last night!

He won the 2012 Presidential Election and his first second-term tweet broke a Twitter record previously held by the one and only Justin Bieber.

With the photo above of him hugging his wife Michelle and the words, "Four more years," President Obama's first tweet since he was declared the winner got retweeted and shared more than any other social media message before.

Justin Bieber held the Twitter title when he tweeted his condolences after his young fan, Avalanna Routh, passed away earlier this year. Bieber had a then-record 223,376 retweets, but the pres' tweet has more than doubled it already.

Obama's message was shared on Twitter over 600,000 times and got over 3 million "likes" on Facebook!

Whether you were for or against the man, one thing for sure is that he has a baller Twitter status now!

Think Justin will ever regain his crown?
