Oscar host Ellen DeGeneres fused Twitter on Sunday night with her celeb-packed selfie.

Ellen racked up an amazing two million re-tweets when she took a group selfie that included: Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Lawrence and Jared Leto.

And this mass volume of usage actually froze the popular social media platform.

The image was posted on her own Twitter page via her Samsung Galaxy cell phone in what is thought to be a promotional stunt for the popular device.

It was just one of several stunts during a fun packed evening at the 86th Academy Awards in which Ellen also ordered pizza and then demanded a whip-round to pay for the impromptu take-away order.

Her initial Tweet was favorited an amazing 900,000 times ... and counting.
