After beating Kylie Jenner's picture as the most-liked photo on Instagram, the mysterious egg has taken to the Twitterverse in an attempt to set a new world record.
The egg photo posted on January 4 on Instagram by the 'Egg gang' @world_record_egg took the Internet by storm and netizens came together to help the account scramble past Kylie's most-liked photo of her newborn. The humble egg is comfortably placed at 37 million likes, almost 20 million more than Kylie's post.
But the fun has just begun.
Not content with just one record, the egg took to microblogging site as @egg_rt_record to crack the Japanese billionaire's most-retweeted tweet on Twitter.
Yusaku Maezawa's tweet dated January 5, 2019, is currently the most shared tweet on the platform. Yusaku (@yousuck2020), who founded the Japanese online clothing retailer Zozo Inc, posted a tweet on the platform with a promise that he will share 100m yen (6.52 crores in INR) between 100 randomly selected people who shared his tweet.
And in no time, Yusaku became the tweeter with the most-retweeted tweet with 5.3 million shares on Twitter.

Riding high with its Insta success, the egg account now wants to beat Yusaku's tweet and set a new world record.
On Monday, @egg_rt_record took to the microblogging site and wrote, "Hello Twitter! This IS possible! You saw it happen on Instagram.

Last week Yusaku Maezawa broke the record of the most shared tweet which was held by chicken nugget-seeking US teenager Carter Wilkinson's 2017 tweet asking Wendy's for free chicken nuggets for a year.
By achieving such numbers, Wilkinson broke Ellen's Oscar selfie record.
