Not the first time anyone tries to gather a huge amount of likes, shares, or followers as a joke. In 2017, Carter Wilkerson, a 16-year-old, asked Twitter on Wendys fast food chain how many retreats it would take to earn free nuggets for a year from the restaurant. Faced with the 18 million answer, the Internet accepted the challenge and helped the student get the number and beat Ellen DeGeneres' selfie record with other famous people at the 2014 Oscars.
