Chicken nugget request is set to break retweet record

A chicken nugget fan has launched a campaign on social media to get a free lifetime supply of the breaded dish.

Carter Wilkerson's took to Twitter to ask Wendy's how many re-tweets he would need to get in order to receive a year's supply of the feast from the food chain, and the ambitious teenager is on set to break the world record and make his dream come true.

The 16 year old wrote: "Yo @Wendys how many retweets for a year of free chicken nuggets? (sic)."

To which the company replied: "18 million (sic)."

And the youngster is set to break the world record for the most amount of retweets with his ambitious plea on the micro blogging site, which has been repeatedly shared almost three million times.

However, Carter didn't think his post would be as successful.

Speaking to USA Today, he said: "I sent out the tweet as a joke, but then they responded with the outrageous number. I thought 'Consider it done' would be funny among my friend group. Then I put the screen shot up and it started gaining momentum."
