The tweet Chadwick Boseman‘s family made to announce his death has become the most liked tweet in Twitter history. 

The American actor, known for playing the lead role in Marvel’s superhero production, Black Panther, died Friday, August 28, after a four-year battle with colon cancer.

The 43-year-old actor died in his home in Los Angeles with his wife and family by his side.

In a public statement, Twitter recognised how
“fans are coming together on Twitter to celebrate the life of Chadwick Boseman, and the tweet sent from his account is now the most-liked tweet of all time on Twitter.”

Twitter confirmed this via their official Twitter account where they quoted Boseman’s tweet with the caption:

“Most liked Tweet ever. A tribute fit for a King. #WakandaForever.”

Currently, Boseman’s tweet has over six million likes and two million retweets. This surpasses Barrack Obama’s 2017 tweet of four million likes where he quoted Nelson Mandela.

Twitter has also brought back the ‘Black Panther’ hashtag to honour the deceased icon.
