Carter Wilkerson, 16, of Nevada, fell short of the 18 million retweets Wendy's wanted, but the company is still giving him the nuggets. Wilkerson has been working at this goal since April and now has the most retweets of all time at 3.5 million.

The fast-food chain said it is also donating $100,000 to the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, which is dedicated to finding homes for foster care children.

Up until now Ellen DeGeneres’ Oscar selfie had the most retweets with 3.4 million.
