Wendy's Offers a Guy Free Nuggets For a Year If He Gets 18 Million Retweets and He's Doing Better Than Expected

If you're looking for a new important cause to back through the power of social media, I can't really think of anything bigger than this.

A guy named Carter Wilkerson from Reno, Nevada tweeted Wendy's on Wednesday, asking, quote, "Yo @Wendys, how many retweets for a year of free chicken nuggets?"  And they actually responded:  18 million. 

Now that's a pretty ridiculous goal, considering the all-time record for retweets was that selfie that ELLEN DEGENERES took at the Oscars a few years back, and it only got 3.3 million.  Carter would need almost six times that. 

But he's trying.  And shockingly, it's going pretty well. 

As of right now, his tweet has over 2 million retweets.  And while that's not 18 million, it's still an INSANE amount of retweets for some random dude trying to get free chicken nuggets.
