Man attempts to break Ellen's retweet record

BEAUMONT - By Justin Hinton, KFDM News

A Beaumont man is trying to etch his name into the history books for most retweeted tweet.

Terry Shipman got the idea after watching the Oscars and seeing Ellen DeGeneres famous selfie featuring a number of Hollywood actors, although he waited two days before taking his own.

I tweeted it to my son who was at a Houston Rockets game at the time and I asked him to retweet and I said, maybe we can beat the Oscar retweets jokingly, Shipman said.

Before long, the retweets poured in.

My daughter calls and says you're trending in India, he said.

More than 154,000 people have retweeted his tweet featuring his two dogs, Max and Oreo who are getting some special treatment of their own.

There's a tweet from PetCo offering us a $500 gift card, Shipman said.

He said he never imagined that it would get this big, thinking only his family would retweet him, but he says even with the 15 minutes of fame, he will still be the same man.
