American Carter Wilkerson (Wilkerson Carter) on Tuesday, may 9, broke the record on Twitter, gaining the maximum in the history of the social network, the number of retweets — 3434902 over a period of a little over a month (at the time of publication of news).
Thus, he overtook the previous record holder, TV host Ellen DeGeneres, published in March 2014, a selfie with the Hollywood actors at the ceremony of awarding the prize “Oscar”. Her tweet today can boast 3430349-Yu repost that on 3577 reposts less than Wilkerson.
April 7 this year, the man asked in his Twitter account, the fast food chain Wendy’s, how many retweets he needs to gather to get a year’s supply of chicken.
The company’s representatives said, “18 million”, then he posted a screenshot of this message and addressed to a subscriber with the request: “Help me, please. Man needs nuggets”.
