This afternoon, Rep. Paul Tonko, D-New York, asked his 8,396 Twitter followers for retweets to show their opposition to a new herbicide manufactured by Dow AgroSciences.  The tweet above has received just three retweets at the time of this writing. One of those is from an account that automatically retweets every tweet posted by a congressional Democrat.

Rep. Tonko does not give up easily, however:

That one has two retweets, including one from the bot.

Four retweets.

This one got the best response of all: A whopping six retweets at the time of this writing. Out of more than 8,000 followers.

By comparison, Zayn Malik’s inane call to “free Palestine” has almost 288,000 retweets.

Where have all of Twitter’s environmentalists gone?
