Teen's viral chicken nugget campaign surpasses Ellen Degeneres' for most retweets

10 May 2017

Per Carter's deal with the fast food chain, he would be awarded a year's supply of nuggets if his inquiry reached 18 million retweets.

That's what Carter Wilkerson - Twitter's newest sweetheart who garnered over 3.4 million retweets on his request to Wendy's for a year of free chicken nuggets - learned when the daytime queen terrorized him in front of her audience! The fast-food chain told him 18 million, and Wilkerson told them to "Consider it done".

He then tweeted the conversation with Wendy's with the caption: 'HELP ME PLEASE.

Sharapova broke back immediately but then dropped another service game to allow Bouchard to serve out for the match. Second-seeded Karolina Pliskova was upset in the second round, falling to Anastasija Sevastova of Latvia 6-3, 6-3.

The teenager made his hungry plea for help on Twitter, writing in all capital letters that "A MAN NEEDS HIS NUGGS". Eighteen million is pretty near impossible: The reigning retweet record holder was Ellen DeGeneres, whose 2014 Oscars selfie-showing the talk show host flanked by the likes of Meryl Streep, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, and other A-list celebs-has garnered an impressive 3.4 million retweets so far. We suppose that was all the extra incentive the internet needed, since as of Tuesday morning, Wendy's confirmed, at long last, on Twitter that Carter had earned himself a year's worth of delicious chicken nuggets - and did serious good for charity while he was at it. That's good for the nuggets, and $100k to @DTFA. This milestone has brought greater attention to Twitter TWTR, +0.33% and Wendy's Co.

Carter's certificate read: 'This certificate certifies that Carter Wilkinson has the most retweeted tweets in the history of ever (sorry Ellen) #nuggsforcarter #consideritdone'. Wendy's donated $100,000 to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, a group that pairs foster children with homes.

"I want to give back".
