Medio Bistro came out with a list of the top 10 most retweeted tweets of all time, and while Canadian pop sensation Justin Bieber tops the list, the LGBT community has also made the cut.

President Obama's May 9 tweet in support of gay marriage has placed fifth in the list, with over 61,000 retweets.

That day, Obama became the first sitting U.S. president to endorse equal marriage rights for gay couples. He later went on television and reiterated the message.

"It is important for me personally to go ahead and affirm that same-sex couples should be able to get married," Obama said, according to the Associated Press.

Others who made the Twitter list include Floyd Mayweather calling out Manny Pacquiao, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift, whose tweet "I'm so 22 right now," placed at number 10, with over 25,000 retweets.
