Thousands unfollow Sen. John McCain after he asks for more Twitter followers

Posted on December 5th, 2017 at 17:41 by John Sinteur in category: News -- Write a comment


“We’re only 74 Twitter followers away from 3M – spread the word & help us reach this big milestone!” McCain tweeted out at 10:27 a.m. Monday morning from his verified account, @SenJohnMcCain

And the internet did help spread the word, but in the opposite way the senator was hoping for.

Using the hashtag #UnfollowMcCain, a mass unfollowing ensued.

“You’re kidding, right? *THIS* is what you’re concerned with?” @madmia2


By 4:30 p.m. on Monday afternoon, about 6 hours after the senator’s original tweet, he has lost more than 17,000 followers on Twitter.
