To which the company replied: "18 million (sic)."
And the youngster is set to break the world record for the most amount of retweets with his ambitious plea on the micro blogging site, which has been repeatedly shared almost three million times.
However, Carter didn't think his post would be as successful.
Speaking to USA Today, he said: "I sent out the tweet as a joke, but then they responded with the outrageous number. I thought 'Consider it done' would be funny among my friend group. Then I put the screen shot up and it started gaining momentum."
