There’s always a danger in trying to get a hashtag to trend. Sometimes, it does for all the wrong reasons.
Supporters of President Donald Trump started a #ThankYouTrump “Twitter Rally” on Tuesday night, but it didn’t take long for them to lose control of the hashtag.
Soon there were plenty of tweets “thanking” Trump for reasons his supporters definitely wouldn’t appreciate.
Here’s a sampling:
