MrBeast breaks a new internet record and gives away all the money he made in the process

MrBeast breaks a new internet record and gives away all the money he made in the process

The YouTube star donated $25k to 10 of his followers

Mr Beast has gone and done it again and broken another world record - making it his third in total.

The YouTuber is accumulating quite the impressive record too - how many people can say they've beaten Mark Zuckerberg's follower count on their own app in under 10 hours?

But when you reach the top, the only way is further up right?

And this week, MrBeast - real name Jimmy Donaldson - has accumulated the most retweets on X (formerly known as Twitter) for a single tweet - making it the most reposted tweet on the platform.

MrBeast should be thanking Elon Musk for that, as earlier this year, he introduced an ad-sharing revenue program onto the platform allowing users to profit from their content via advertisements - which certainly peaked the YouTuber's interest.

"I'm curious how much ad revenue a video on X would make so I'm reuploading this to test it. Will share ad rev next week," MrBeast announced on X.

Taking on the new 'challenge', the 25-year-old managed to rake in a staggering $250,000 for one single video.

And as if that wasn't crazy enough, he also announced his plans to donate the entirety of his cash earnings to 10 total strangers - bagging him a colossal 3.9 million retweets.

MrBeast said he would give away all of his X earnings to fans.

The YouTuber later acknowledged the jaw-dropping numbers his post has achieved in a subsequent tweet.

"This is now the most reposted post in history [shocked emoji]," he penned.

I mean, promising a ton of money will probably do that.

Millions of viewers were left waiting on the edge of their seats in the hope that they'd be announced as one of the lucky winners.

One wrote on X: "Probably won't win but I might as well try LMFAO"

A second teased: "2 more hours before my $25k arrives."

"Pls pick me, I'm poor," another begged, while a fourth joked: "Mind ya'll business I need some coins."

MrBeast soon put everyone out of their misery by announcing the 10 names earlier today, writing: "Here are the winners of the $250,000 giveaway! They each will receive $25,000 :D"

And they seemingly couldn't believe their luck - quickly thanking the YouTuber for choosing them.

"I am just so confused and taken aback and also I just got home from work wow," one tweeted.

MrBeast swiftly replied to them, saying: "Congrats:D".

"THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!" gushed another.

I don't blame them - I'd probably react the same.
