Teen Asking for Free Chicken Nuggets Breaks Record for Most Retweets Ever

A Nevada teenager was awarded Wendy's chicken nuggets for a year after breaking Twitter's all-time record for 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!

'Consider it done, ' the undaunted high school student had replied.

He then turned to the Internet with the simple plea, "Help me please".

A man will have his nuggs.

Indians put Kluber on 10-day DL with back issue
Cabrera, who hit his sixth career homer off Cleveland ace Corey Kluber , missed the previous nine games with a right groin strain. The Tigers also lost second baseman Ian Kinsler , who was removed in the top of the seventh inning with left hamstring tightness.

That was after she and Bradley Cooper produced a fake PSA, asking for help to get more retweets on their viral Oscar selfie so they could keep the record. 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.

As reported by Mediaite, when DeGeneres had Wilkerson on her show in April, they discussed a deal: She would support Wilkerson's fast-food endeavor by retweeting his post, as long as he promised to retweet DeGeneres' selfie so she could hold on to her record. "Consider it done", Carter responded.

The charity is a Wendy's affiliated nonprofit that finds permanent homes for children in foster care. He now has over 100,000, he is officially verified on Twitter, and #NuggsForCarter has a custom emoji featuring a box of Wendy's nuggets.

Las Vegas teenager Carter Wilkerson took a more unorthodox approach. What he may not have known was that his inquiry would become the most retweeted tweet of all time.

Naturally, all this attention was good enough for the people at Wendy's, who blessed the upstart Twitter celebrity with a year's worth of free chicken nuggets.
