A man in Texas, who has Tweeted a total of six times in his life, has launched an attempt to beat Ellen Degeneres' record for the most reTweeted picture in the world.
And he's not doing badly.
The picture (below) features himself and two little dogs. There is currently no word on why Mr Shipman launched his attempt, but so far it's proven fruitful - he has 132,000 retweets as of press time.
True, that's still several million below Ellen's star-studded Oscars selfie. But it's not bad - and it's growing all the time. It's already beaten the official Simpsons' attempt, after all.
Let's see if we can beat the Oscar re-tweets! pic.twitter.com/hke2BbcUJb— Terry Shipman (@terry_shipman) March 4, 2014
Shipman has been pleased by the response but called on his sudden Twitter following to keep the momentum going:
Great start on the re-tweets. Let's keep It going.— Terry Shipman (@terry_shipman) March 5, 2014
