Carter Wilkerson is now the title holder for the most retweeted tweet of all time. Sorry Ellen DeGeneres fans, Wilkerson’s Wendy’s tweet just reached more than 3.5 million retweets. This makes DeGeneres’ Bradley Cooper tweet behind with its 3.4 million retweets. Can she still make the cut?
In case you missed it, this internet sensation started when this 16-year-old guy tweeted Wendy’s for a year’s supply of nuggets. Well, you could say that this man is a total nuggs lover!
Wendy’s was nice enough to answer Wilkerson’s request in exchange of 18 million retweets! 18 million guys! That’s huge!

But this nugget-loving teen is determined to get his year’s supply of his favorite Wendy’s nuggets. And so, he asked the public to support his cause, 18 million tweets for his nuggets.
The Twitter world did not disappoint! The hashtag #nuggsforcarter took social media by storm. In just a month, Wilkerson’s post gained 3.5 million retweets!
Now, Wendy’s just congratulated the boy for having the most retweeted tweet of all time. Check the tweet below.

But let’s not forget that this is just one of Wilkerson’s Twitter achievement. Before he took that spot, someone else was occupying it. And she’s no other than the most famous TV host of “The Ellen Show.”
DeGeneres has secured the title for the most retweeted tweet of all time since 2014. Her tweet that shows an image of her with the many popular celebrities during the Oscars stood strong for three years!
In the picture, the “Limitless” actor took a selfie with your favorite stars. However, not all of them were perfectly positioned inside the frame. But still, DeGeneres tagged it as the best photo ever.
So in fears of being overthrown by Wilkerson’s tweet, DeGeneres asked Cooper’s help to request people to retweet their photo. “The Hangover” star was very firm there. He said they earned the title and they are not going to lose it! That being said, he asked the audience to be a part of history by retweeting the image.
