An Anti-Hillary Campaign On Twitter Gets Taken Over With Classic Sarcasm (IMAGES)

When Hillary Clinton announced her presidential campaign on April 12, many Republicans were ready to respond through social media. They weren’t ready for sarcastic participation from non-Republicans, though, who quickly took over the #WhyImNotVotingForHillary hashtag game on Twitter. And these dark-humored responses outweighed tweets from conservative participants so much that the top entry in this hashtag category, leading it in both retweets and favorites, comes from a progressive crasher.

The progressive responses to this still-ongoing game aren’t necessarily in support of Clinton’s presidential bid, either. They’re simply anti-GOP, and are based on the fact that the Republicans’ contributions to the theme’s intended goal are only on subjects of “Benghazi” and “Lewinsky” and other nut-jobbiness.

When the progressive takeover of the hashtag game became quickly apparent, some Republican participants complained it was Twitter’s fault. (Like, to hell with the First Amendment and Freedom of Speech, right?)
