John McCain asked for help to reach 3 million followers on Twitter, and instead, thousands unfollowed him!
The United States Senator from Arizona lost thousands of Twitter followers after tweeting a plea to help him hit 3 million.
John McCain was 74 followers away from the goal. But after the unfortunate backfiring of his very "genuine" plea on Twitter, he now stands nearly 20,000 away from 3 million.
We're only 74 Twitter followers away from 3M - spread the word & help us reach this big milestone!— John McCain (@SenJohnMcCain) December 4, 2017
On Monday, McCain's office tweeted a message asking to help the senator reach 3 million on Twitter.
What McCain did not expect, surely, was a how a seemingly simple tweet turned into a massive "#UnfollowMcCain" campaign, with thousands unfollowing him, just after he asked for more, resulting in the most epic rebounds of all time!
Following the Republican Senator's decision to vote 'yes' on the massive tax reform bill, frustrated Twitter users have unfollowed him.
You've LOST hundreds of followers since you sent this.— Mikel Jollett (@Mikel_Jollett) December 4, 2017
You will be remembered for the fraud that you are.
Can't imagine a more selfish act than a man who gets cancer treatment paid for by a program that he proceeds to CUT for other cancer patients.
The hashtag "#UnfollowMcCain" resulted in a massive unfollowing and was tweeted by more than 700 people, according to hashtag analyzer Keyhole.
Many blatantly voiced their opinion on the senator's latest political move.
Thanks for bringing this to my attention @SenJohnMcCain. I just unfollowed you. I'm so disappointed with your vote on the #TaxScamBill. I'd really thought better of you. I still wish you good health, despite the fact that you do not wish the same for me or many others.— Heidi (@ProfHeidi) December 4, 2017
You lost more than 20k followers today @SenJohnMcCain. Instead of begging ppl to follow you, do the right thing and reject the tax bill.— Kimberley Johnson (@AuthorKimberley) December 5, 2017
Ppl with cancer - less fortunate than you - will lose healthcare. Plus $1.4 trillion added to the deficit. Be an American hero. Not a villain. https://t.co/CsrAtRsThx
