Last night, Hillary Clinton took the stage at the Democratic National Convention and accepted her party’s nomination, becoming the first woman to be nominated to run for president by any major political party in America. The speech she gave, of course, took aim at Donald Trump and highlighted her hopeful vision for the future of American prosperity.
Today on Twitter, there is a new trend: #ImWithHerNow.
This is a more positive version of the #GirlIGuessImWithHer trend that was popular about two months ago. After that lackluster acceptance from Twitter users who would have preferred to support Bernie Sanders, the Clinton campaign told Mediaite that they were “hopeful” because “people are going to see her continuing to speak out on the progressive issues they care about,” though they didn’t expect the rallying of new fans to be an “instantaneous process.” It looks like playing the long game worked, at least as far as hashtag movements go.
