Do you love chicken nuggets? Do you love other people who love chicken nuggets? Then you probably love Nevada teenager Carter Wilkerson.

A few days back, Carter—who, again, loves chicken nuggets—asked nugget retailer Wendy's how many retweets he'd need to get free nuggs for a year. They set the bar incredibly high at 18 million, almost 15 million more retweets than Ellen's Oscar selfie, which holds the all-time record at about 3.3 million.

Yet Carter did not flinch, and simply set his mind to the task at hand.

Already Carter has surpassed 2 million retweets—an eye-popping feat—and he's not slowing down now. Yes, 16 million is a long way to go, but #NuggsForCarter is a movement with purpose. It just might happen.

With this many brands, fans, and governors jumping onto the bandwagon, it looks as if Carter won't even have to hit his goal to reap the rewards of his social media savvy. Because nothing tastes as good as getting the most retweets ever.
