Colin Powell’s 60-Year-Old Selfie Blows Yours Out Of The Water

Colin Powell threw down the gauntlet on (Throwback) Thursday, posting a photo he took of himself before self-portraits became popular on the Internet.

“Throwback Thursday – I was doing selfies 60 years before you Facebook folks. Eat your heart out Ellen!” the former secretary of state wrote on the social network.

A star-studded selfie taken at the Academy Awards that was prompted by host Ellen DeGeneres bested President Barack Obama’s record for the most-retweeted tweet of all time.
