A Michigan teenager is counting on your retweets for a ticket to meet his true love in Canada.
19-year-old C.J. Poirier connected with his girlfriend online about a year ago. Now he wants to meet her in person. But, he can't afford a plane ticket.
The teenager sent a tweet to Air Canada and the airline replied that if he can get 530,000 retweets, he will get a free ride.
@AirCanada How many retweets to get a free round trip flight to Newfoundland and see my girlfriend?
