It's official: Carter Wilkerson, the dude who set out to get a year of free Wendy's chicken nuggets with his #NuggsForCarter campaign on Twitter, is finally getting his nuggets. As of Tuesday, his now-legendary tweet is the most retweeted of all time, surpassing Ellen Degeneres' celeb-packed Oscars selfie and -- best of all -- earning him the free food.
Wendy's announced the news on Tuesday morning, only a little more than a month after Wilkerson asked the Wendy's Twitter account how many retweets he'd need to get in order to score a year of free chicken nuggets. The chain replied "18 Million," but it looks like breaking the record for most retweets with more than 3,430,500 retweets and counting is enough to earn a mountain of nuggets and, of course, eternal crispy chicken glory. It was only a matter of time, Ellen.
