On April 5th 16 year old Carter Wilkerson tweeted: “Yo @Wendys how many retweets for a year of free chicken nuggets?”
“18 Million,” Wendy’s tweeted back.
“Consider it done,” Wilkerson responded.
He posted a screenshot pleading for retweet help, and the rest is (truly now) history.
In the past 5 weeks Carter has built a following of over 100,000 followers, went on the Ellen Degeneres show and raised thousands of dollars for charity. You can read more about how he did all of that in our first story on him.
Yesterday he received the reward he had been hoping for despite being over 14 million retweets short.
