Carter will get his nuggs.
Reno's Carter Wilkerson, 16, reached the top of the Twitter game Tuesday morning with the most retweets ever, surpassing previous record-holder Ellen DeGeneres.
And he'll get his chicken nuggets, plus $100,000 to a national charity.
Last month, Wilkerson accepted a challenge from Wendy's official fast food Twitter account to get 18 million retweets in exchange for a year's supply of chicken nuggets.
On Tuesday, Wendy's announced that #NuggsForCarter passed 3.4 million retweets. "That's good for the nuggets, and $100k to @DTFA," Wendy's Twitter account said.
(The DTFA is the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.)
Wilkerson, a student at Manogue High School, started the legendary social media campaign in early April when he tweeted: "Yo @Wendys how many retweets for a year of free chicken nuggets" as a joke. Wilkerson said at the time that he didn't really expect a reply.
Wendy's replied with "18 million"
(That would be 5 percent of Twitter's monthly active global users.)
Carter replied, "Consider it done" and posted a screenshot of the exchange. Five weeks later, history was made.
