A Japanese citizen's tweet has become the most retweeted ever after he offered to give away £7,000 to 100 lucky netizens.

Yusaku Maezawa, a billionaire, received over four million retweets for his post on January 5, breaking the previous record set by teenager Carter Wilkinson's appeal for free chicken nuggets.   

Mr Maezawa offered those re-tweeting his post 100m yen (£725,000), shared between 100 randomly selected people who reposted the tweet. 

 'To participate, all you have to do is follow me and RT this tweet,' Mr Maezawa said in his tweet. 

The post appeared to be in celebration of his website Zozotown making 10bn yen in sales over the Christmas and New Year period.

He is believed to have a net worth of close to $3billion after making his fortune in the fashion world.
