Analysis of exit polls shows that the difference in Georgia’ Senate run-off elections may come down to a Brooklyn man’s single tweet urging people to vote.
Tyler Manowick, 28, tweeted to his 607 followers that they “need 👏 to 👏 get 👏 to 👏 the 👏 polls.” A careful examination of his followers found that roughly three of them have or had lived in the state of Georgia at a time, though it is unclear if they still live there. However, if they do, that could swing the races.
“This is the most important election of our lifetime,” Manowick said in a follow up tweet. “It’s been months since we’ve had to make a choice this crucial. I urge both of my Georgia friends to stand up to fascism.”
The Hamster was not able to determine if the four likes the tweet received – from users in New York, California and Illinois – will make a difference.
