Teen breaks Twitter record with chicken nugget plea

A hungry teen has been given a year's supply of chicken nuggets by Wendy's after breaking Twitter records for the most retweeted post.

Carter Wilkinson asked the fast food giant how many retweets he would need to get free nuggets for a year.

Wendy's answer: "18 million".

Mr Wilkinson was undeterred and called for help.

"HELP ME PLEASE. A MAN NEEDS HIS NUGGS," he tweeted.

He quickly got support, and his message now has over 3.5 million retweets - becoming the most retweeted tweet of all time.

Wendy's says Mr Wilkinson deserved his reward, despite missing the target.
