The allure of Wendy's chicken nuggets is at the center of Twitter's most retweeted tweet.
Carter Wilkerson is just a high school kid from Nevada who, as a quick joke, asked Wendy's via Twitter how many retweets he would need to get in order to earn free chicken nuggets for a year.
Wendy's answered the 16-year-old's hungry request with a hefty challenge: 18 million retweets. The fast-food chain told him 18 million, and Wilkerson told them to "Consider it done".
That's right: Carter is now the record holder for most retweeted tweet ever. "A man needs his nuggs".

Wilkerson called for the internet's help, and as of Tuesday, he has more than 3,433,216 retweets - meaning that he's officially surpassed DeGeneres' famously star-studded Oscar selfie. "That's good for the nuggets and good for a $100k donation to [the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.] Consider it done". Her tweet got more than 3 million retweets. He is also selling T-shirts on his website, with a promise that all proceeds go to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
DeGeneres encouraged fans to retweet Wilkerson to help him get his nuggets, but with the stipulation that they retweet her Oscars pic as well so she can stay in the lead.
Twitter pointed to Wilkerson's chicken nugget plea in its first quarter letter to shareholders, noting that the social media site is the "best place for advertisers to drive brand perception". 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).
