It appears that Twitter Retweets are becoming a virtual currency, at least in the marketing departments of some companies, such as Wendy’s.
A Nevada high schooler has taken to Twitter to ask Wendy’s how many retweets he would need to have Wendy’s chicken nuggets free for an entire year:
@carterjwm 18 Million
— Wendy's (@Wendys) April 6, 2017
18 million being the result. Now, people around the world are trying to help Carter Wilkerson claim his years supply of nuggets through the hashtag #NuggsForCarter – and, even some companies are getting involved, including Microsoft:

Microsoft then asked Amazon and Google to also get involved. Amazon responded, whereas Google made no comment:

What’s more, Microsoft’s Office team are ready to provide a years subscription to Office 365 if someone can attain 365 million retweets:
@marknoble 365 million. ?
