Carter Wilkerson, a teenager from Reno, Nevada, loves Wendy's nuggets. So, in a tweet that has gone viral, Carter posted a conversation he had with the fast food chain, asking how many retweets he would need in order to get free nuggets for a year, not realizing it would eventually be retweeted over 3.5 million times.
Over the past month, the tweet, and #NuggsForCarter, gained momentum, with celebrities pitching to to help Wilkerson reach his goal.
Even though Carter didn't reach the 18 million retweets needed, Wendy's still gave him gift cards for a year's supply of nuggets, as well as donating $100,000 to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption in Wilkerson's name.
Not to mention the 100,000 followers he now has on Twitter.
