World (Sputnik) – US citizen Carter Wilkerson broke a Twitter record, gathering the highest number of retweets in the history of social media.
With 3,434,902 retweets within a little more than a month, Wilkerson has the most retweeted tweet ever.
On April 7, the young man published a post asking the American fast food chain Wendy’s about how many retweets he needs to collect to get an annual supply of chicken nuggets.

Representatives of the company told him to get 18 million retweets after which he published a screen shot of this message and asked Twitter users to help him out: “Help me, please. A man needs nuggs.”
Surprisingly, his tweet became so popular that it broke the previous Twitter record set by Ellen DeGeneres, whose selfie with Hollywood stars from the 2014 Academy Awards gained 3.43 million retweets.
However, so far, Wilkerson has not reached 18 million retweets. So it remains unknown whether he will get the nuggets he so much wants.
