Teen's plea for free Wendy's nuggets sets retweet record

Posted May 10, 2017

Wendy's reply was simple - 18 million.

"Consider it done", Wilkerson replied.

Teenager Carter Wilkerson just dethroned Ellen DeGeneres' famous Oscar selfie for the most retweeted tweet. That's good for the nuggets, and $100k to @DTFA.

Carter Wilkerson has seen his popularity on the social media site spike.

As of Tuesday, his tweet had been retweeted 3,478,226 times. Improbably, his tweet has been getting all sorts of attention since then, and it's finally come to this: Today, Wilkerson's tweet surpassed Ellen Degeneres' famous Oscars selfie as the most retweeted tweet of all time, now sitting at over 3.4 million retweets.

Carter appeared on Ms DeGeneres' show last month. I worked really hard.

The news will come as a blow to former record holder Ellen DeGeneres.

"Wendy's leveraged the unique conversation that happens only on Twitter into national prominence for their brand, creating a call for Retweets that inspired unprecedented engagement". Wendy's, playing along, set the bar high: 18 million.

Internet users far and wide reached out a helping hand and retweeted Wilkerson to aid in his nugget journey.

It's an awesome thing that 3.4 million people could come together to support such a odd quest, as getting that many millions of people to agree on any one thing would seem an otherwise impossible task.

By breaking the record, Wendy's said Carter had done enough to earn the Nuggets, and even donated $100,000 to the Dave Thomas Foundation, which works to find forever families for kids who are in foster care. Let us know in the comments!
