Teen's plea for free Wendy's could become most retweeted tweet of all time

“Yo @Wendys how many retweets for a year of free chicken nuggets?” asked Nevada teen Carter Wilkerson via Twitter.

“18 Millon” replied Wendy’s in all seriousness.

Challenge accepted.

Nevermind that the most retweeted tweet to date is Ellen’s 2014 Oscar photo with 3,281,814 retweets… Wilkerson, a total internet nobody (until now) might just have a chance of crushing that record thanks to the Internet’s collective love for chicken nuggets.

Wilkerson’s tweet has already amassed 2.5 millon retweets and continues to gain traction. #NuggsForCarter is trending. The media is salivating. Wilkerson has an official Twitter fan club, and big brands everywhere are lining up to ride Wendy’s coat tails.

What a time to be alive.
