Unfortunately, Bradley Cooper's tiny arms couldn't get the entire crowd in it.

If only Bradley's arm was longer. Best photo ever. #oscars

But it seems to have been a pretty big hit with users. The tweet broke 100,000 retweets in just a few minutes.

Of course, The Academy doesn't seem to be too upset about it...

Update: As of 10:40 p.m., Ellen's tweet beat Barack Obama's "4 More Years" tweet in retweets, making it the most retweeted tweet on Twitter.

Then, 15 minutes after breaking the record for most amount of retweets, it became the first tweet to break a million retweets.

As of Sunday night, Barack Obama's tweet has only been retweeted a little under 800,000 times.
