FOX NEWS - Pop-Tarts have big plans for 2020.
The folks behind the breakfast pastry’s official Twitter account shared a post on Monday revealing the brand’s political aspirations ahead of the next presidential election, announcing the news in the first-person, and asking followers to retweet “if you would support this endeavor for me.”
Hello I am considering a presidential run in 2020. Please RT if you would support this endeavor for me.— Pop-Tarts (@PopTartsUS) January 28, 2019
The tweet came just one day after former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz announced that he was “seriously considering running for president as a centrist independent” on Twitter himself.
I love our country, and I am seriously considering running for president as a centrist independent.— Howard Schultz (@HowardSchultz) January 28, 2019
Ironically, and as pointed out by Fortune, Pop-Tarts’ tweet was retweeted over 31,000 times, or more than 27,000 times more than Schultz’s tweet. It’s worth noting, however, that Schultz was not asking to be retweeted, unlike Pop-Tarts.
