Twitter picked up Billy's tweet saying, "You donut want to miss out on Billy's and neither do we!"

Billy's Donuts, located in Missouri City, Texas - outside of Houston - celebrated its grand opening this past weekend, but the lack of customers prompted Billy By to take matters into his own hands. Now, after being retweeted more than 334,000 times and like more than 748, 000 times, Billy's dad (who named the shop after his son *tear*) has a new problem: he keeps running out of kolaches and donuts because lines are OUT THE DOOR!

Less than 24 hours later, a newly-opened empty Texas doughnut shop was flooded with customers.

Saturday afternoon, Billy By tweeted photos of his dad's empty donut shop, Billy's Donuts, writing, "My dad is sad cause no one is coming to his new donut shop [crying face emoji]". More than 58,000 people also started following the doughnut shop's Instagram page.

The tweet subsequently went viral, with over 320,000 retweets and 730,000 likes as of Tuesday morning, and celebrities including Casey Neistat and actor James Woods amplifying the tweet.

"I can't thank everyone enough for coming out and supporting local businesses", Billy wrote in another Twitter post.

"Just wanted to update y'all! You are all wonderful", By tweeted, along with a photo of his no-longer-sad father.

Twitter even sent over a team of people from its company to buy out the shop for other customers.
