A Texas A&M student named Anne-Marie needs y’all’s help.
On Tuesday, she slid into the DM’s of @MylesLGarrett with the following, then publicized the exchange with a tweet:
Help a sister out. All it takes is a retweet. Actually about 17,000 more of them at the time of this writing Wednesday.
Be the first to know.

Anne-Marie had gathered 8,000 retweets by Wednesday at noon, with 24 hours left to nab the 17,000 more she needs in order for Garrett, the presumptive No. 1 pick in next week’s NFL Draft, to accompany her to her sorority’s semiformal event. The agreement was originally 100,000 retweets, before Garrett willingly adjusted the agreed-upon total.
