Who the heck is Carter, you ask? Well, you didn’t know Carter when you clicked on this story, but you will WANT to know Carter when you’re done reading this. Because Carter is just a cool dude who wanted some free chicken nuggets from Wendy’s.
So, he did what the kids these days do, and he tweeted Wendy’s:
HELP ME PLEASE. A MAN NEEDS HIS NUGGS pic.twitter.com/4SrfHmEMo3

It all started on April 5, when Carter asked Wendy’s how many retweets he would need in order to get free nuggets for a year from Wendy’s. Probably doubting the gumption of one Carter, Wendy’s requested 18 million retweets.
Carter, a young man who values a year of Wendy’s nuggets, was up to the challenge.
Ellen Degeneres who held the top retweeted title even helped give Carter the push he needed.
And on Tuesday, Carter kicked Ellen Degeneres out of the Most Retweeted position and took the crown officially.

And now Carter and his nuggs will live happily ever after for one full year. And Wendy’s got to ride his coattails to the top. Everyone wins. Yay Carter.
