Ellen set a record in March 2014 with her Oscars selfie which has since gotten more than 3,431,000 re-tweets. She held the “most re-tweeted” title for more than three years until Wilkerson’s plea for free chicken nuggets from Wendy’s went viral.
He tweeted Wendy’s asking “How many retweets for free chicken nuggets for a year?” Wendy’s tweeted back saying “18 million” and thus his mission began.
