Student Takes on Wendy’s with EPIC Nugget Twitter Challenge

Carter Wilkinson is just another man with a dream, some might say an impossible dream, some might say a ridiculous dream, but as John Lennon said “A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.”

Carter loves Chicken Nuggets, how much you ask? Well… his Twitter profile’s description is “I like chicken nuggets” and it is on said-Twitter where he decided to message fast food chain Wendy’s, asking how many retweets it would take to get unlimited nuggets for one year.

The reply was short and to the point, “18 Million”

His reply came one minute later, “Consider it done”

It… was… ON!

To put this into context how massive an achievement this would be, Ellen’s infamous Oscar Selfie smashed records with 3.2million retweets. With 313 million active monthly users on Twitter, this mammoth task would require 5% of Twitter’s audience!

The hashtag #NuggsForCarter has been trending, attracting some of the biggest names in showbusiness as well as some mega brands.

Even United Airlines retweeted, despite going through their own trending social media drama:

Wendy’s have had their say…

We’re going to get some Chicken Nuggets, put our feet up and watch how this one plays out #NuggsforCarter
