Wendy’s Will Give This Guy a Year of Free Chicken. First He Just Needs 18 Million Retweets
Wendy’s (WEN) promised a man free chicken nuggets for a year—but only if he gets 18 million retweets.
Carter Wilkerson, a man from Reno, Nevada, tweeted at the fast food chain on Tuesday, asking how many retweets he would need for a year of free chicken nuggets. Wendy’s replied to Wilkerson with the 18 million retweet stipulation—a nearly impossible feat, considering Wilkerson would need 5.6% of the Twitter user base to retweet him, according to CNBC.
What’s more, Ellen Degeneres’ selfie at the Oscars in 2014—with was loaded with celebrities—has over 3 million retweets. Her tweet—which is also the most retweeted tweet of all time, notes CNBC—is still about 14.7 million less than the 18 million Wilkerson apparently needs.
Still, Wilkerson has seen some support from his fellow Twitter users. As of Thursday morning, he had over 900,000 retweets – just over 5% of what Wilkerson needs.
