Former Governor Mike Huckabee is being targeted on Twitter due to his support of the Common Core State Standards. The “Twitter Bomb” started at 11:00a (EDT) today and will go until Saturday when his show ends. Those who organized this are asking those who participate to Tweet @GovMikeHuckabee and put on Governor Huckabee’s Facebook page facts about the Common Core.
Dawn Wildman of Citizens United for Responsible Education (CURE) said in an email that they are doing this to make sure that Governor Huckabee gets the message about how grassroots activists feel about the Common Core, not “his crony political buddies like Jeb Bush.”
The hashtags they are encouraging you to use if you participate is #educatehuckabee, #stopcommoncore and #CURENat. My two cents is to prioritize the #educatehuckabee and #stopcommoncore hashtags; tweets with more than two hashtags seemed to be shared less and they are longer. Also try to keep your tweets shorter so they are easy to “RT.”
Here is the Twitter feed for the primary hashtag – #educatehuckabee:
