Texas high school student could get class out of final if his tweet gets enough retweeets

By Daniel S Levine,

A Texas high school student struck a unique deal with his art teacher Wednesday. If a picture of him shaking his teacher’s hand gets 15,000 retweets, the entire class doesn’t have to take the final.

Andrew Muennink, a senior at Round Rock High School, got his teacher, Cindy House, to make the deal. According to the board behind them in the picture, Muennink has until May 23 at noon to get as many retweets as possible. At the moment, he has over 6,500 retweets and needs 11,000 more to get the class of 30 students out of the final.

“I try my best and the final is supposed to be so hard, so I was like, 'I have a lot of followers on Twitter,’” Muennink told ABC News. He has 1,780 followers at the moment.

While Muennink is getting some attention for being one of the first, within hours, other students began tweeting about similar deals, notes USA Today. Thousands of students across the country might get out of their final exams thanks to Twitter.

Muennink actually has it a bit easier than some other students. Mackenzie Slagle needs 250,000 retweets to get out of her government final. Andrew Champ needs 100,000 retweets to get out of his final. He only has 41,000 retweets so far.
