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

Carter Wilkerson is approaching top retweet of all time

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

Shortly after Wendy's response, the 16-year-old from Reno, Nev., took a screenshot of the conversation and asked fellow nugget lovers to help him because, as he tweeted, "a man needs his nuggs". That's good for the nuggets, and $100k to @DTFA.

Twitter gave Wilkerson's account the highly coveted blue verified badge. But for whatever reason, the internet latched onto Carter's quest, #NuggsForCarter, and within weeks of the original tweet, the kid was staring down seven figures in retweets.

Beyond 100 days, Trump faces more legislative challenges
But instead of approaching the American people as potential friends to be convinced, smug leftists treat them as ignoramuses. Trump added that the measure has a "clause that guarantees" that people with pre-existing conditions will be covered.

With 3.47M (and climbing) retweets, it has surpassed the infamous Ellen DeGeneres Oscar selfie and snagged the title of most retweeted tweet of all time.

The news will come as a blow to former record holder Ellen DeGeneres. I worked really hard. The foundation seeks to help adoption agencies find forever homes for foster children in need.

"I challenge anyone who retweets Carter's tweet to also retweet my Oscars selfie".

No easy vote this election
People are exhausted of politics as usual - and so are we. "I think we can all agree we can't afford four more years of Christy Clark".

Heck, brands and companies like Wendy's dream of the kind of opportunity #NuggsForCarter would present, especially when those social media impressions gain ground on the likes of former President Barack Obama, One Direction, and the reigning queen of retweets, Ellen DeGeneres.

Carter hasn't quite hit 18 million retweets yet. "The restaurant posted a photo of Wilkerson holding up a certificate and what looks like a handful of gift cards, and captioned it, ".@carterjwm is now the most retweeted tweet of all-time.

'We could not be more excited for Carter for having broken the record of the most Retweeted Tweet of all time. Let us know in the comments!
