Japanese Billionaire Breaks “Twitter Most Retweet Record” with 5.5Million Retweets

A Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa has done the unexpected as he breaks twitter “most retweet record”.

As at press time, Maezawa’s tweet dated 6 January has now been retweeted more than 5.5 million times.

ZOZOTOWN新春セールが史上最速で取扱高100億円を先ほど突破!!日頃の感謝を込め、僕個人から100名様に100万円【総額1億円のお年玉】を現金でプレゼントします。応募方法は、僕をフォローいただいた上、このツイートをRTするだけ。受付は1/7まで。当選者には僕から直接DMします! #月に行くならお年玉

That’s way more than Carter Wilkinson’s 2017 request for help to secure himself a year of free chicken nuggets from fast food chain Wendy’s.

His social media success means Wilkerson, who was retweeted 3.5 million times, has slipped into second place.

The founder of Zozotown, Japan’s largest retailer, had earlier said he’s going to split 100 million yen with 100 random people who retweeted his tweet.

All people had to do to be in with a chance to win was to follow the entrepreneur and retweet his message.

His generous offer comes after Zozotown’s New Year sale was its biggest ever, making 10 billion yen.

Maezawa is best known internationally as being first private passenger due to be flown around the Moon by Space X, the company owned by billionaire Elon Musk.
