The fast-food fan has been tasked with getting 18 million retweets on Twitter.

A fast food-loving man is on a mission to win a year’s worth of Wendy’s chicken nuggets, and all he needs is 18 million retweets on Twitter.

Carter Wilkerson, from Nevada, asked the food chain how many retweets he would need for a 365-day supply of nuggets, and was given the adventurous – yet not impossible – figure of 18 million.

The challenge was one hard enough to prompt most to retire, but not Carter. He called upon his followers and complete strangers to help make his dream a reality.

Surely but steadily the count on the retweet button began rising as more and more people became investing in Carter’s quest for chicken nuggets.

It wasn’t long before #NuggsForCarter started trending and, in less than 48 hours, Carter’s tweet had been retweeted over 1,100,000 times.

Even Wendy’s got in on the fun, tweeting encouraging messages to those helping Carter conquer his dreams. And by the sounds of it, they’re not only willing but totally prepared to cough up those nuggets.
