Former Secretary of State Colin Powell posted a 60-year-old "selfie" in recognition of "Throwback Thursday" on his Facebook page Thursday.

"Throwback Thursday — I was doing selfies 60 years before you Facebook folks. Eat your heart out Ellen [DeGeneres]!" Powell wrote.



The retired general was referencing the selfie DeGeneres took with a gathering of Hollywood stars while hosting the Oscars on March 2. The selfie was posted to Twitter and retweeted 1.4 million times in the first hour and a half, crashing the @TheEllenShow Twitter account.

By Thursday afternoon Powell's Facebook post had more than 54,000 "Likes," over 13,000 "Shares" and almost 1,700 comments.
