Yusaku Maezawa is very famous person. He is running a very successful business. Would these qualities combined help create record breaking amount of retweets? No. In his tweet he is actually making a promise to share cash to 100 people that engage with his tweet. There you go – nothing beats free cash 😉
Just to give you context, Obama’s tweet “four more years” from 2012 got +800k retweets.
The peak on Twitter is very sharp.
