A teen's love of chicken nuggets could end up breaking Twitter records.

Last week, 16-year-old Carter Wilkerson tweeted at fast-food chain Wendy's asking how many retweets it would take for a free year of nuggets.

Wendy's came back with a staggeringly high number: 18 million.

Wilkerson, however, was not deterred.

Wilkerson sent out another tweet, asking for help. Amazingly, the Twitterverse answered the call.

The hashtag #nuggsforcarter began trending, and Wilkerson's tweet has since been retweeted nearly 2.5 million times.

At the one million mark, Wendy's said it was "officially shook."

For reference, the most-retweeted post in Twitter history was Ellen DeGeneres’ Oscars selfie, with 3.2 million retweets.

Before that, the most retweeted post was former President Barack Obama's 2012 re-election celebration, with "only" 940,000 retweets.

While Wilkerson is more than 15 million retweets away from a year of free nuggets, he's only 700,000 away from claiming the top retweet spot from DeGeneres.

Godspeed, young man. You deserve those nuggets.
