Leonardo Brakes Twitter Record



The 41-year-old actor picked up the Best Actor prize for his role in 'The Revenant' at last night's ceremony and the moments after his name was read out as the winner generated over 440,000 tweets per minute, making it the most-tweeted minute of an Oscars telecast ever.

The figure smashes the previous record, which was set in 2014 when then-host Ellen DeGeneres tweeted a star-studded selfie.
