Carter Wilkerson Needs 18 Million Retweets To Win A Year Of Free Chicken Nuggets

Twitter is helping him make it happen

Last month, a fast-food war ignited on Twitter when Wendy’s burned McDonald’s in a clash over fresh-versus-frozen beef patties.


But Wendy’s may have to pay up after a snarky reply to a big fan could come back to bite them on the buns.

While 18 million retweets seems nearly impossible, as of Friday morning, Carter Wilkerson had already reached the million mark and Wendy’s can’t believe it:

To put things in perspective, the most retweeted tweet in the social media platform’s history was Ellen DeGeneres’ famous Oscars selfie which earned 3.2 million retweets. Wilkerson’s tweet would have to be retweeted by five percent of Twitter’s users to reach his goal, but he has help. Someone set up a GoFundMe page with a $62,000 goal to buy him enough retweets to get him to 18 million. But that seems a bit excessive being that Wilkerson would only need $1,960 to buy a six-piece nuggets for breakfast, lunch and dinner, every day for an entire year.

A hashtag has been set up to help Wilkerson meet his goal and even Microsoft is using it.

Last Friday, GOOD reported on an infuriating incident that went down at a Massachusetts Target.

A Target manager who's come to be known as "Target Tori," was harassed by Twitter troll David Leavitt for not selling him an $89 Oral-B Pro 5000 toothbrush for a penny.

He describes himself as a "multimedia journalist who has worked for CBS, AXS, Yahoo, and others."

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

In a typical work day, people who smoke take more breaks than those who do not. Every few hours they pop outside to have a smoke and usually take a coworker with them.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
