SAVAGE! McCain Asks for More Twitter Followers, THOUSANDS Unfollow Him

I cannot tell a lie, I laughed so hard when I read an article on Tucson about Senator John McCain asking for more Twitter followers, and instead lost thousands of followers!

Poor ol Songbird learned the hard way that people on the internet really don’t care about feelings…like, at all.

On Monday night, McCain expected to gain some followers to push him over 3 million when he tweeted out, “We’re only 74 Twitter followers away from 3M – spread the word & help us reach this big milestone!”

In reality, thousands of people unfollowed him. In fact, nearly twenty thousand have unfollowed him already and it’s still going!


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.

Many people tweeted with their disapproval to him. “John, earn your followers the normal way, by tweeting meaningful things.” @gettinnoticedmo said.

“Unfollowed… should have reconsidered that tax scam vote,” @staygold8512 added, and @madmia2 said, “You’re kidding, right? *THIS* is what you’re concerned with?”

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.

Don’t worry McCain, now you’re only 17,0074 away from 3 million followers! LOL
