The internet reacting to Senator John McCain asking for more Twitter followers.
FOX's Krystin Goodwin explains:
On Monday Arizona Senator John McCain took to Twitter to ask followers for help posting:
We're only 74 Twitter followers away from 3M - spread the word & help us reach this big milestone!
-- John McCain (@SenJohnMcCain) December 4, 2017
It backfired. Critics and Democrats used the Republican Senator's plea to take aim at him for supporting the GOP tax bill. They began using the hashtag '#UnfollowMcCain, claiming the bill mainly benefits large corporations and the wealthy.
One tweeting: "Since you chose to care about only yourself and wealthy friends I chose to unfollow."
Following his post, Senator McCain lost close to 20,000 Twitter followers.
