Let the mockery begin: White House asks, ‘Why do you #FollowWH?’


The White House reached 3 million Twitter followers today and launched a celebratory hashtag.

Naturally, Obama supporters swooned in unison.

The hashtag hasn’t gained much traction yet, but a few conservatives got in on the action.

I follow @whitehouse better than @whitehouse follows guns across the border #FollowWH

— MenRec (@rustyweiss74) August 4, 2012

Oh snap!

The White House plans to highlight some “favorite responses” on WhiteHouse.gov. We’re guessing these won’t make the cut. Heh.

Anyone else up for some sharing? Why do you #FollowWH?


More answers to the White House’s question from the right side of the Twitterverse:


I #FollowWH because I feel MSNBC slants way too far to the RIGHT and I need a little balance from people I trust

I #FollowWH because Game of Thrones is on break and I need to appease my fantasy habit

#FollowWH @whitehouse Where else are you going to consistently find fiction of this calibre?

— Jim Branch (@jamesbranch3) August 4, 2012

#FollowWH @whitehouse Thought I might find a link to download a course for learning Austrian.

And because somebody had to tweet it:

If we #FollowWH, maybe we can find out whether or not #HarryReidIsAPederast

— John Dea (@JohnRDea) August 4, 2012

When will the White House weight in on the serious allegations that Harry Reid is a pederast? Perhaps his recent refusal to deny the charges will capture the attention of the White House.
