President Barack Obama didn't just clinch a win against Mitt Romney—he snagged a huge victory over Justin Bieber, too!

His celebratory tweet "Four more years," which went up right after TV networks projected him the winner of the 2012 election, edged out a tweet by Biebs to become the most retweeted post of all time.

Per Buzzfeed, Obama's missive racked up more than 200,000 retweets in just 22 minutes, surging past the record held by Bieber for a tweet that paid tribute to his late fan Avalanna Routh, who died of cancer in September.

As of early Wednesday morning, Obama's victory post had racked up more than 608,000 retweets.

C'mon, Biebs: We're waiting for your concession speech.
