(Twitchy)   Hey GOP: you may have lost the election, been mocked around the world, and face years in the wilderness, but Michelle Malkin's stupid website says you won Twitter this year, so um, congratulations   (twitchy.com) divider line 180

No way in hell they "won" Twitter. The GOP got owned on Twitter. They just refused to acknowledge it, like reality.

Yes, but Obama got the mayor badge for the White House.

There are no winners on Twitter.

Search for words or phrases from candidates' feeds, see the engagement across the U.S.

psh. if anyone should 'win' twitter it should be me.

Considering that Twitter was instrumental, among other places, in making Binder of Women instantly part of American political slang, no you didn't.

Twitter is more important than the Oval Office or the Senate.

Marcus Aurelius: There are no winners on Twitter.


I see these 'hashtags' in peoples FB comments from time to time and it just makes me get all 'off my lawney'. Seriously are there actually people that do nothing but wait for a half sentence of garbage every waking minute of the day?

"Congrats to all the happy warriors on Twitter who delighted in crushing narratives, mocking the steady supply of mock-worthy liberal nonsense and tweeting truth to power!"

"Truth to power". The Republicans on Twitter have neither truth nor power. Discuss.

I guess when you fail so often and so hard, you have to take what minor victories you can.

Way to go, conservatives! How awesome for you!

While it has pretty much become a dated Fark cliche, there has never a thread where this meme was more appropriate:

With my constant barrage of foursquare updates, and retweets, *I* should win twitter.

Michelle seems to not have understood that a huge percentage of the #tcot tagged tweets were mocking or opposing them.

It is, however, an interesting study in tunnel vision. That is, the mindset seems to be "everyone I follow and talk to on Twitter is Republican, therefore most of Twitter is owned by Republicans."

It's too bad she's such a vile person, because she's very attractive otherwise.

I'm surprised that geriatric Republicans even know what Twitter is.

My angry GOP relatives are still getting their heads around how "the Google" works.

Good job, Republicans. Way to go! You're still winners! Don't let reality fool you.

I don't tweet or follow anyone on Twitter. But if that conversation on the link you supplied is in anyway representative of what Twitter is like, the GOP can have it.

Certainly twitter is not for everyone, but many people I see hating on it don't really understand how it works. You decide who you follow. Twitter is what you make it.

Today, Twitter confirmed what Twitchy has been reporting. The #tcot, or "top conservatives on Twitter" hashtag, tops the list of political hashtags for 2012.

This is embarrassing, like it's similar to the nerdy girl who gets voted Prom Queen and thinks it's because she's popular.

"conservatives" continue to dominate twitter:

But the link you posted goes to Barack Obama. I guess my point is that if you are following a political figure, and that's the crap that gets posted, it seems like a waste of time.

Even if you follow Barack Obama, you don't see all that crap. You have effectively demonstrated Dusk-You-n-Me's point.

Besides, everyone knows that that's not that #TCOT stands for:

Tell him Mitt Romney was elected President of the Internet, which means he doesn't have to spend as much time in Cabinet meetings and state dinners, but can spend more time buying paper towels at Costco

The "your dog wants steak" button got stuck in the "on" position so the steaks just kept coming.
