The 86th Academy Awards could be remembered by a number of labels: The Oscars where Ellen DeGeneres ordered pizza. The Oscars where Matthew McConaughey won. Most likely, though, we’ll recall this ceremony as Oscars that broke Twitter. During the broadcast, DeGeneres took it upon herself to organize the world’s greatest selfie in the hopes of creating the most retweeted tweet ever. Spoiler: She did.

Too bad Liza Minnelli couldn’t quite make it into the shot. Maybe next year?

So Ellen got her wish, and also managed to crash Twitter in the middle of the show. Thankfully, the site was up and running for the rest of the night, allowing users to send more than 14.7 million tweets during the live broadcast alone. Here are the moments that got viewers talking:
