Supporters of Hillary Clinton decided to try another Twitter hashtag, #HillarySoQualified, and like the last one – #ApologizeForWhat – this is backfired in a big way.
Immediately after it appeared, supporters of Bernie Sanders responded to Clinton’s latest attack storm on the senator by hijacking the hashtag and turning it into yet another Twitter nightmare. Following are some Tweets:
— Canada4Bernie (@Canada4Bernie) April 7, 2016
— Patricia Negron (@panegron) April 7, 2016
— World For Bernie (@WorldForBernie) April 7, 2016
#HillarySoQualified that her supporters make hashtags that end up not helping her.

Secretary Clinton’s supporter do not seem to have learned that supporters of Sanders are by far more outspoken, especially on social media.
If they wish to avoid the social brunt of a large movement, it’s time for for the Secretary’s base to leave the hashtags alone.
