Senator John McCain loves attention and this proves it even further. John McCain begs Twitter for just 74 more followers to reach 3 million and what happens is hilarious.
Despite being 81 years old, John McCain still feels the need to be loved. Even by people who he will never meet on Twitter. It makes sense why he feels this way. He was denied presidency in 2008 when America instead went for a first-term senator with very little experience. Ever since that happened McCain has been on a quest to find love from strangers.
Monday morning McCain took to Twitter to plea for just 74 more followers to get to three million:
John McCain Begs Twitter For 74 More Followers
We're only 74 Twitter followers away from 3M - spread the word & help us reach this big milestone!
— John McCain (@SenJohnMcCain) December 4, 2017
Sitting at 2,999,926 followers, McCain was right on the doorstep of the three million threshold. He was oh so close.
What happens next? His plea for followers backfired big-time. Followers started bailing on him.
He dropped down to 2,983,650 followers. Meaning he lost over 16,000 followers with his desperate plea.
Some even took this tweet as a reminder of why they do not like Senator John McCain.
McCain definitely does deserve some credit. He is a legit war hero and additional to that he has dedicated his life to public service. Despite this, he has done a great deal of damage to his reputation among conservatives.
McCain did finally vote for Trump's tax plan, but still some of his not as loyal followers said "see ya" to McCain after his desperate plea.
I wish I followed you so I could unfollow you now after you Tax Scam vote.

@SenJohnMCain even IF one of your aides posted this, it could encourage people to follow you just to unfollow you for blatantly & insensitivity seeking forking Twitter followers when you just voted to NOT support health care thru Tax Bill. Get it? No? Thought not.

I would have gladly followed you anywhere a month ago. Now I’m bitterly disappointed in you.

I will be unfollowing you. You went from a respectful senator to a man who betrayed a nation with your tax vote. DM me if you so desire. We have a common area of interest: I have bone marrow/blood cancer. Chances of my making 11/6/18 are minimal at best.

McCain hasn't given up. On Tuesday he tweeted a story that bashes Trump. Nothing like a little Trump-bashing to get some followers. The responses continue to demand to know why he changed his tax vote. He hasn't offered an explanation. I don't think he even knows why he voted no, then yes. Despite this his followers count continues to trend downward.
