Carter Wilkerson needs RTS for free Wendy’s chicken nuggets - Twitter 

Carter Wilkerson really loves chicken nuggets.

The student from Reno, Nevada, has even changed his Twitter bio to: “I like chicken nuggets…”

He likes them so much he decided to tweet US fast-food chain Wendy’s asking how many retweets it would take to get free, delicious chicken nuggets for a year.

The reply came: “18 million.”

He confidently replied: “Consider it done.”

Wilkerson has already racked up 1.5 millions RTs in just a few days 

Wilkerson later pinned a screenshot of the conversation on his Twitter profile asking for help: “HELP ME PLEASE. A MAN NEEDS HIS NUGGS.”

“I woke up and I thought I was dreaming. Every class period I’d put my phone away, take it back out and be up 100,000 RTs.

“It was quite amazing and I was really surprised.”

A Wendy’s spokesperson joked they were “officially shook” after the fast-food fan’s message promptly received a million RTs.

“Honestly has gotten way more RTs than we expected,” Wendy’s added.

Wendy’s replied to another user: “Not afraid. It would honestly be pretty awesome if he got that many.”

They concluded: “He's coming for them nuggs.”
