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

His #NuggsForCarter movement has gotten a lot of press coverage and support from big brands and celebrities, including Google, Microsoft, and even Twitter itself (it gave him a verified badge and also created a special emoji for his cause).

It wasn't long before Wilkerson amassed a grand total of 3.4 million retweets. "A man needs his nuggs", surpassed US TV star Ellen DeGeneres' "Oscars selfie" from 2014 that featured a host of Hollywood stars, to reach top spot.

Carter Wilkerson asked Wendy's how many retweets will he require to get free nuggets for a year.

"18 million", came back the reply from the fried chicken store's Twitter account.

The post, which read "Help me please". "Consider it done", Carter responded.

Late last month, Ellen had Carter on her show to talk about his internet notoriety, the campaign, and to warn him not to get too close to her record-setting Oscars selfie. I worked really hard. It's earned just more than 3.4 million retweets while Carter's, as of this morning, has so far netted about 3.5 million.
