Just a small group attended ‘Auntie Maxine’s Tweet-a-thon’
They were asked to ‘say whatever you want to say. Tell us what you’re thinking’
Despite the poor turnout, she took to Twitter to thank ‘all of the millennials’

5 June 2018

Young people have stayed away in droves from a tweet-a-thon with their ‘fearless champion Auntie Maxine’ in an embarrassing snub to the so-called ‘influencer’.

Maxine Waters, 79, organised a ‘Meet & Greet Tweet-a-thon’ in an attempt to show how popular, and in touch she is with millennials.

The event was billed as a ‘coming together to amplify congresswoman Walters’ voice and highlight her ‘many achievements throughout her career’.

Young people were asked to join ‘top social media influencers for a tweet-a-thon in support of Auntie Maxine… come energized and ready to get out the vote’.

But it was a lonely-looking Waters taking to the microphone at Sunday’s event, as a video posted on her Twitter account showed just 11 millennials in attendance.

She told them: ‘You can say whatever you want to say.

‘Tell us what you are thinking about, what would you like to see, not only in this election but politics in general, with your elected officials. What are you thinking?’

One spoke of the importance of having a ‘continued role’ of representation of people standing up for black people’.
