Ha! Big Labor tries to hijack #WhyIsMyPaycheckLessThisWeek, gets hashtag wrong

Heh. The Left really struggles with this Twitter stuff.

As Twitchy reported yesterday, many Obama voters struggled to understand why their first paychecks of 2013 were smaller. Generous conservatives even launched a hashtag to explain complex concepts like “math” to bewildered progressives: #WhyIsMyPaycheckLessThisWeek.

The hashtag trended for much of Friday, making it irresistible to Big Labor Obama apologists eager to put their left-wing spin on smaller paychecks and Obama’s broken promises. But oopsie! They tried to hijack the wrong hashtag.

Working America, an AFL-CIO allied organization, published a post titled “The Answer to #WhyMyPaycheckIsLessThisWeek (Warning: Contains Facts).” Yep, the “is” is in the wrong place in that hashtag. But that didn’t stop the geniuses at SEIU and AFL-CIO from rushing to promote the post.

The wrong hashtag was published at Daily Kos too.

Awwww. Twitter is so hard. Better luck next time, guys.
