I quit posting to Twitter over a year ago (too many eggs harassing women and not enough return on my time), but despite not tweeting, I still browse tweets to try and read the atmosphere during big events (Super Bowl, elections, debates, etc.) One of my favorite things to witness on Twitter is a marketing backfire-- when someone buys a trending topic or tries to start problems and then magic happens and the opposite of what they wanted becomes a trending topic. Take #thanksobama for instance: a Republican group tried to get everyone blaming President Obama for things in a trending topic, but the Twitterverse was not having it and instead turned it into a joke that President Obama even got in on himself.
It happened again today, this time to a special interest group that was trying to undermine public education.
