How one teen’s plea for free nuggets became one of the biggest tweets ever | Technology | The Guardian
The 16-year-old’s request for a year’s supply of chicken nuggets from American fast food chain Wendy’s has been retweeted more than 2.2m times – making it the third most popular tweet of all time, and the most popular of 2017 so far.To put this in perspective, Ellen Degeneres currently holds the record for the most retweeted tweet ever. Her star-studded Oscars-night selfie has held the record since 2014, with 3.4m retweets. In second place is One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson with a tweet dedicated to bandmate Harry Styles that scored 2.4m retweets, knocking Barack Obama’s “four more years” tweet (900,000+ retweets) from second place last year.
