Looks like Ellen DeGeneres’ retweet record for her famed Oscars selfie has finally been surpassed, by a teen in Nevada
no less! In May, 16-year-old Carter Wilk-erson broke the world record with just
over 3. 6 million retweets. What was the
tweet, you may ask? It was a plea to get
Wendy’s to supply him with a year of free
chicken nuggets. Mission accomplished!
3. 6 MILLION
Spotify fans will love this fact. The popular
music streaming service now boasts 50
million paid subscribers. That’s nearly double the 27 million customers who pay for
Spotify’s competitor, Apple Music.

Pokémon: Magikarp Jump
If you loved Pokémon Go (and come
on, we all did for about four weeks
there), then check out this new game
based off Pokémon’s most pathetic
creature: Magikarp. Train this awkward fish to flop
its way through 20 levels, and teach it to be the best
jumper it can be (that’s all it’s good at after all). Simply
catch your Magikarp and then feed and train it until it
transforms from its adorably pathetic form to the more
powerful, dragon-like Gyarados.
Ever tried taking a group selfie on your
iPhone? If so, then you know how
tricky it can be to tap the shutter button
without dropping your phone. PhotoBot
aims to make the process easier by taking the photos
for you. Simply set a time (for example, 3 seconds) and
the app will automatically snap a photo every 3 sec-
onds, giving you and your friends time in between each
shot to switch up your poses.
One of the best parts of journaling is
being able to look back over old entries
to see how your ideas have changed
over time. EveryYear wants to celebrate
those changes by providing daily questions through-
out the year, which it then shares with you again the
following year. You’ll be able to view past answers and
compare them to your current ones, so you can see the
progress you’ve made.
