The Dude Who Asked Wendy's For Free Chicken Nuggets Got His Wish

So, what have you accomplished on Twitter lately?

If you'll remember back to early April, Reno resident Carter Wilkerson asked the Wendy's twitter account how many retweets he needed in order to get free nuggets for a year.  Wendy's is notorious for it's responses on Twitter where no one (even it's competition) is safe, but apparently who ever was running the account when Carter sent his tweet was chill and responded with a very lofty goal.

In case you're new to Twitter, the record for the most retweets was held by Ellen DeGeneres who tweeted the greatest selfie ever when she hosted the 2014 Oscars, gaining over 3 million retweets and even crashing Twitter shortly after she posted the picture.

That didn't deter Carter, however, and he started his campaign for chicken nugget glory.  Shortly after the gauntlet was thrown by Wendy's, the #NuggsForCarter hashtag took off and now a month later, Carter's tweet officially became the most retweeted tweet of all time, surpassing Ellen's Oscar selfie.

While Carter's tweet didn't hit the 18 million mark, Wendy's still recognized his efforts and gave Wilkerson the chicken nuggets anyway.

It seemed like a prank to some people, but Wendy's confirmed that Carter did indeed "Gets them nuggs."

The internet, in turn, rejoyced...

Not only did Carter receive his "nuggs," but Wendy's also donated $100,000 to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption which finds homes for children in foster care as part of their deal with Wilkerson so it was a win-win situation all around!

The only person who feels a little burned may be Ellen DeGeneres who used to hold the world record for most retweets.  Ellen had Carter on her show to confront him about her attempts at Twitter superstardom, even offering him a 55" Smart TV and a year's supply of Ellen underwear in attempt to save her position in Twitter's legacy.

After he surpassed Ellen, however, it seems as though there may be some bad blood.
