One teen’s mission for a year’s supply of free chicken nuggets has become Twitter’s most retweeted post of all time.
Carter Wilkerson’s post asking US chain Wendy’s how many retweets he needed for a year’s supply of nuggets has now been shared on the social media site more than 3.42 million times.
The post, which read “Help me please. A man needs his nuggs”, surpassed TV star Ellen DeGeneres’s Oscars selfie from 2014 that featured a host of Hollywood stars, to reach top spot.
“We did it guys! Thanks to you’re help and support we were able to raise $100k for DTFA and beat TheEllenShow record! Now let’s get 18mil!”,” he wrote.
Wendy’s has now supplied him with a gift card for a year’s worth of nuggets and made a $100,000 donation to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, a charity Mr Wilkerson supports and which finds homes for children in foster care.
“I want to give back. I am so blessed to have an opportunity to use my voice to support something I believe in,” he said.
“And really grateful to everyone who Retweeted my post. They made this happen.”
