Ellen DeGeneres’ iconic Oscars selfie has just been dethroned from the title of ‘most retweeted tweet in history’. Now, the crown belongs to a much less famous face.
But what tweet could possibly be powerful enough to knock that killer snap from top spot? Well, it involves a whole lot of Wendy’s chicken nuggets.
Carter Wilkerson’s (@carterjwm) call for a year’s supply of free nuggets from @Wendys has smashed Ellen’s tweet after gaining a staggering 3.6M Retweets.
The Oscars snap raked in an impressive 3.44M Back in 2014, but #NugsForCarter has just gone above and beyond DeGeneres record.
All of this record breaking got us thinking and now we are curious about all the other epic tweets that were once number one on the retweet scale.
So, to put our minds at rest – here are the Top 20 most retweeted tweets of all time.
