McCain now over 1.7 million Twitter followers
The Hill, Washington, DC ^ | 2010-01-05 | Jordan Fabian

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) notified his Twitter users Tuesday that he crossed the 1.7 million follower threshold.

McCain took to Twitter a day after the account of his 2008 presidential election opponent, President Barack Obama, announced it had crossed over the 3 million follower mark:

Over 1.7 million followers!! Thanks everyone - keep tweeting!

The former GOP nominee has a long way to go if he wants to avenge his loss last year by gaining more followers than Obama.

McCain is the second-most followed sitting politician on Twitter and the 49th most followed Twitter user overall according to TwitterCounter, a widely used Twitter metrics site.

McCain has voted the right way in 2009 — against the stimulus and health care bills for example. We have much bigger fish to fry than McCain. It’s popular here to call McCain a RINO, but it’s stupid to pretend there is no difference between him and Obama.

He can double those numbers in a day if he pulls a Dodd and retires.

Please John, please retire.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) notified his Twitter users Tuesday that he crossed the 1.7 million follower threshold.

And that's just the people who want to laugh at him on a daily basis.

More will follow.

Remember the old cartoons when somebody got conked over the head with a sledge hammer, and they heard the sounds of tweeting?

Hey, mclame — I got yer tweety-tweet-tweet right here (raises sledge hammer over the “count de monet”, ancien regimer’s head)...

The false choice is the favorite rhetorical device of both McCain and Obama .

I follow Sarah Palin on Twitter. Guess that means everyone else needs to shun her.

Considering McCain did nothing to lay blame at the feet of his so called friends for the Mortgage crisis, let Obama get away with saying “he warned” us about the Housing meltdown—I’d say you’re right.

"""""And that's just the people who want to laugh at him on a daily basis""""

That was my first thought as well, all those Twitters were not FRIENDLY Twits, I would be willing to bet.

However he will use those numbers for his own advantage friendly or not.

How about the silliness of his gang efforts of 2005 when he compromised the power of the President. The man may be a war hero, but that in no way qualifies him to be considered a viable man to hold any elective office.

Juan claims to be a conservative Republican ... but he’s mostly just an ancient attention whore.

Gosh! If he can do that, he will have achieved his purpose in life! He may have helped wreck the country, but he can hold his head high! More tweets than Obama! Wow! Way to go, Juan!
