RENO, Nev. – A Nevada teen has fulfilled his quest for free chicken nuggets.
WCMH reported Carter Wilkerson has officially become the most retweeted person in Twitter’s history breaking Ellen Degeneres’ three-year record.
In early April, Wilkerson tweeted at Wendy’s, asking how many retweets it would take for him to get free nuggets for a year. After a couple of minutes, to Wilkerson’s surprise, Wendy’s responded, asking for 18 million retweets.
On Tuesday, Carter surpassed 3.4 million retweets beating the record of 3.3 million held by Degeneres’ star-studded selfie from the Oscar’s in 2014.
In a show of good faith, Wendy’s went ahead and awarded Carter with the year of free nuggets, but the good news doesn’t end there. Carter’s quest also helped raise $100,000 for the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
So... He gets the nuggets?— Floris (Timelapser) (@MineTimelapser) May 9, 2017
However, Carter isn’t completely satisfied. He’s still asking to reach his original task of 18 million retweets. Only about 14.6 million tweets to go Carter!
