Hillary Clinton had the most retweeted tweet of the 2016 election, according to a spokesperson for Twitter.

Twitter spokesman Nick Pacilio said on Twitter that a quote Clinton tweeted from her concession speech was the most retweeted of more than 1 billion tweets about the 2016 election.

“And to all the little girls who are watching this, never doubt that you are valuable, and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams,” Clinton said during her speech.

Clinton held the previous record as well for a June tweet advising her rival Donald Trump to delete his account.

Trump’s most retweeted tweet prior to the election was a rebuttal to Clinton’s suggestion.

The social media platform dubbed the 2016 presidential election “the Twitter election.”
