This Tweet Just Broke Ellen Degeneres' Retweet Record

And it's about nuggets.


Please cast your mind back to Oscars (so white) 2014, when Ellen Degeneres tweeted the following group photo and it quickly became the most RT'd of all time. Until today.

Thanks to an intensive social media campaign, Ellen's record has been broken by one Carter Wilkerson, whose enthusiastic love of chicken nuggets—coupled with a challenge from Wendy's—got him the win.

And yes, this win is Guinness-approved:

Carter has yet to reach 18 million RTs, but Wendy's is coming through with the nuggets anyway, and donating money to charity.

Who wants to bet serious $ that Carter will be appearing in a Wendy's commercial any day now?
