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 is closing in on 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." The viral sensation has spawned the hashtag 'NuggsForCarter' and over 100-thousand dollars worth of donations to Wendy's Dave Thomas Foundation. The current record for most retweets is 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?
