Carter Wilkerson has been hungry for some time now, according to someone familiar with the matter. Yesterday, in agony, he resolved within himself to cease the toleration of his famine, and bravely typed a message on Twitter to Wendy’s — a national chain of restaurants where people often eat — pleading for justice. He wanted to know just how many supporters would have to stand up for his wellbeing before the company would do the right thing, and provide him his deserved nuggets.
As the whole world watched, they replied.
18,000,000 retweets and Carter will be able to eat.
Helping Carter is very easy: just retweet!
You won’t just be helping a starving boy, either.
You’ll be letting all of your followers know — along with anyone stopping by your profile — that you like it when people eat, and that you like to eat, too! That passerby might just be looking for someone who also likes to eat and decide to follow you!
The previous retweet record is about three million, so it’s going to take a lot of supportive allies, but hey -
what’s more important than eating!?
I love eating and food more than anything else in the world, and that sentiment — as well as sharing it with others — is an essential component of my identity. I’m so lucky that my lifetime is spanning the greatest renaissance in the history of human communication. Without intellectually and culturally enriching technologies like Twitter, how would Carter tell the world that he is hungry?!
How would I?
Hungry and angry!
I’m going to eat.
Abandon the job, of course!
