A tweet by former US president Barack Obama about the violence in Charlottesville has become the most liked message in the history of Twitter, the company said on Wednesday.

The tweet by the country's first black president quoted Nelson Mandela.

"No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion," Obama tweeted on Sunday, following deadly clashes in the Virginia city between neo-Nazi sympathisers and counterprotesters.

As of 1300 GMT on Wednesday, Obama's message had been "liked" 3.2 million times. - AFP
