  • The Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa has surpassed a chicken-nugget-loving US teen by posting the most retweeted tweet ever.
  • Maezawa’s tweet offered a financial incentive for people to retweet it.
  • Elon Musk announced in September that Maezawa had purchased a ticket to fly around the moon on SpaceX’s Big Falcon rocket.

The Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa made headlines last year when Elon Musk announced he would be the first commercial passenger to be flown around the moon in SpaceX’s Big Falcon Rocket. Now, Maezawa has set a record for the most retweeted tweet.

The record was held by Carter Wilkerson, a US teen who in 2017 asked Wendy’s how many retweets he would need to be awarded a year’s supply of free chicken nuggets.

The fast-food chain replied with “18 million,” and Wilkerson’s subsequent tweet begging people to help him achieve his goal racked up 3.5 million retweets. Though Wilkerson did not hit the target of 18 million, Wendy’s acquiesced and gave him a year’s supply anyway.
