It's official –– the most-liked tweet in the history of Twitter belongs to former President Barack Obama. 

In the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, Obama pushed a message of unity. 

Quoting Nelson Mandela, Obama tweeted, "No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion. … People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love. … For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite." 

The message was split into a series of tweets, but by Wednesday morning, one garnered more than 3 million likes. 

That now makes Ariana Grande's message after the Manchester concert attack the second-most liked tweet of all time with over 2.7 million likes.

And with 2.4 million likes, Ellen DeGeneres' celebrity-crammed selfie at the 2014 Oscars takes third place.
