Carter is up 6,000 retweets over Ellen's tweet, but she has 1.4 million more likes on her tweet. Now that everything was made official, Wendy's held up its end of the bargain, and also chose to award Carter the year's supply of chicken nuggets 15,000,000 retweets early. That's good for the nuggets, and $100k to @DTFA.

DeGeneres encouraged fans to retweet Wilkerson to help him get his nuggets, but with the stipulation that they retweet her Oscars pic as well so she can stay in the lead. Assuming Wendy's gives him a daily allotment of one four-piece chicken nuggets, he'll eat 180 calories a day of nugs.
It should be noted that DeGeneres's tweet, while star-studded, wasn't premised on a campaign to get re-shared, like Wilkerson's.
