President Obama's Twitter campaign to encourage voters to tweet their representatives for "compromise" in the debt talks may have backfired.
Instead of new votes, many of Obama's targets gained new followers.
In response, several members pushed back against @BarackObama's Twitter campaign by sarcastically tweeting their gratitude for the increase in followers.
"Looking forward to all the new followers @BarackObama sends my way today in his Twitter spam campaign," Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.) tweeted.
"Thanks @BarackObama for followers. As you know, I helped pass a bipartisan plan," Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-Mont.) tweeted.
"Thanks @BarackObama for all the new Twitter followers. We tried to search for your debt limit plan & found this: t.co... #TX17," Rep. Bill Flores (R-Texas) tweeted.
