Chadwick Boseman's Final Tweet Is All-Time Most Liked Tweet

Chadwick Boseman’s final tweet on his official Twitter handle on Friday, is now the all-time most-liked tweet on Twitter, gathering over 6million likes in just two days.

The Hollywood and Black Panther actor who joined Twitter in 2016, and whose death was announced on Friday due to colon cancer, surpassed that of former President Barack Obama who held the record for the most liked tweet on Twitter.

Barack Obama’s tweet which was the most liked was when he shared the Nelson Mandela quote, “No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion.” The tweet was coloured on Aug. 12, 2017, the same day as the deadly Charlottesville, Va., car attack at a protest against white supremacists.

Obama’s former record-holding tweet has 4.3 million likes and 1.6 million retweets. But Chadwick Boseman’s tweet has created another record, and from what we have seen so far, it could get up to over 10million in over a week.

“Fans are coming together on Twitter to celebrate the life of Chadwick Boseman, and the tweet sent from his account last night is now the most-liked tweet of all time on Twitter,” the company said in a statement.

Twitter also reinstated the “Black Panther” hashtag emoji in the wake of the star’s death.

“Fans are also working to organize ‘Black Panther’ Twitter watch parties using #BlackPanther and #WakandaForever, so Twitter has turned the original #BlackPanther emoji back on so fans can watch and talk about his legacy together,” Twitter said.

“It is with immeasurable grief that we confirm the passing of Chadwick Boseman. Chadwick was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in 2016, and battled with it these last 4 years as it progressed to stage IV,” the tweet announced.

Chadwick Boseman’s tweet has gathered over 6million likes and 3million retweets as at 6am on Saturday.
