On April 5, Carter Wilkerson asked the Wendy's Twitter account how many retweets he needed to get free chicken nuggets for a year.
'Consider it done, ' the undaunted high school student had replied.
The record for the most retweeted tweet ever was previously held by Ellen's famous Oscar selfie which packed so much star power in a selfie that it was unbelievable.
A Nevada teen ousted Ellen Degeneres for the most retweeted tweet of all time.
The teenager fell short despite breaking the record, appearing on Ellen DeGeneres' talk show and receiving the help from brands like Apple Music, Google and Microsoft.
Shortly after Wendy's response, the 16-year-old from Reno, Nev., took a screenshot of the conversation and asked fellow nugget lovers to help him because, as he tweeted, "a man needs his nuggs".
Srichand & Gopichand Hinduja lead UK's annual billionaires list
At the top of the list: brothers Srichand and Gopichand Hinduja, with £16.2 billion - up from £13 billion past year . New billionaires Gujarati migrant brothers Mohsin and Zuber Issa are also among the top 40 Indian-origin super-rich.
Dave Thomas, a born-again Christian and the founder of Wendy's, created the charity to find homes for the countless children stuck in America's foster care system.
Carter "is now the most retweeted tweet of all-time", Wendy's wrote.
She even presented somewhat of a compromise with a mutually beneficial deal that could get the teen his nuggets while keeping the record under her Twitter handle. I worked really hard.
It's a good day for Twitter user Carter Wilkerson. Wendy's said that the goal was 18 million. Assuming Wendy's gives him a daily allotment of one four-piece chicken nuggets, he'll eat 180 calories a day of nugs.
It's an awesome thing that 3.4 million people could come together to support such a odd quest, as getting that many millions of people to agree on any one thing would seem an otherwise impossible task.
