Most retweeted ever

Obama's tweet knocked Justin Bieber's tweet of 26th September off the top spot in the retweet tables according to stats compiled by media bistro.

Bieber's tweet - up till now the most retweeted ever - was about a six year old fan, Avalanna Routh, who recently died from cancer. Bieber had actually donated to her cancer care and the tweet got retweeted over 200,000 times.

The President also won re-election in the United States.

Like Obama, Bieber has a strong power base among young and the female segments of the population.

Bieber was in the news yesterday because the 18 year old popstar is suing an American company that made a sex doll in his image "Just-in Beaver", on sale for $20.

But Obama beat Justin there too. The President inspired a blow up sex doll over two years earlier - in 2010. ®
