Twitter officially crowns teen seeking free Wendy's nuggets as the most-retweeted tweet of 2017

Chicken nugget guy, Obama among most retweeted of 2017

A 16-year-old named Carter Wilkerson, @carterjwm, garnered 3.6 million retweets in his campaign for a year's supply of nuggets from Wendy's.

Coming in at the second most retweeted tweet of 2017, the former president's response to the violence in Charlottesville over the summer was retweeted by over 1.7 million users (and, when it was posted, quickly became the most-retweeted tweet at the time).

Despite his status as a truly prolific tweeter, President Donald Trump will not be finding any of his tweets on this year's official Twitter list of most retweeted tweets.

The current occupant of the White House was, however, the most tweeted-about world leader though.

Wendy's told the teen that it would take 18 million retweets for him to get free "nuggs." .

Mr Obama appeared twice more in the top-10 most shared tweets of the year.

Following that trend, Twitter looked back at some of the most popular tweets of the year.

To date, his tweet has been shared over three million times.

Likely, the biggest surprise is what is not included on the list: a tweet from Pres. Donald Trump.

Ariana Grande's tweet after the Manchester Arena bombing in May was the fourth most retweeted globally. Next came @SallyQYates, the former acting attorney-general who was also fired by Trump.

Despite this, Mr Trump was both the most talked-about politician in the United States and worldwide.
