This kid now has the most retweeted tweet ever!

A tweet from a teenager in Reno, Nevada is on pace to become the most retweeted of all time. Carter Wilkerson's tweet from April 5th just passed three-point-four--million retweets. The 16-year-old had tweeted the fast food chain Wendy's asking how many retweets he needed to get free chicken nuggets for a year. The Wendy's account responded with "18 million." Carter said "Consider it done". 

The viral sensation has spawned the hashtag 'NuggsForCarter' and over 100-thousand dollars worth of donations to Wendy's Dave Thomas Foundation. Carter has created t-shirts and is donating all proceeds to the foundation. You can buy them off his site The current record for most retweets was held by talk-show host Ellen Degeneres who has over three-point-four-million retweets on a selfie from the Oscars in 2014.

The question is….can Carter hit that 18 million retweets?
