Stephen Colbert Is the Man With the Golden Tweet

Stephen Colbert beat out Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne, @alqaeda and @ShitMyDadSays for the most-retweeted tweet of the year:

In honor of oil-soaked birds, ‘tweets’ are now ‘gurgles.’

The link goes to Comedy Central’s “Address the Mess” series.

Colbert’s tweet got over 44,000 retweets. Twitter co-founder Biz Stone presented the award to Colbert last night on The Colbert Report.
