We now have proof that selfies existed 60 years ago.
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell posted a vintage photo of himself on Facebook to celebrate "Throwback Thursday," also known as #tbt.
"I was doing selfies 60 years before you Facebook folks," Powell wrote. "Eat your heart out Ellen!"
As of Friday morning, Powell's selfie had over 100,000 likes and 25,000 shares. DeGeneres' viral Oscars selfie set a Twitter record with more than 3.3 million retweets.
