Using the #WalkAway hashtag, former democrats are tweeting about their decision to leave their party. Brandon Straka of Unsilent Minority started the movement with a powerful video that is blowing up Twitter (see below). Yet since it began, #WalkAway (and a similar hashtag, #DemExit) have not trended, despite their immense popularity.
People on Twitter are calling out the social media giant for censoring the hashtag:

Would be nice if Twitter would trend #walkaway. But that would defeat the socialist cause.

How much longer will Twitter keep #WalkAway off the trending list?

The #WalkAway movement is pretty incredible, and of course Twitter is hiding it from the trending topics.

#walkaway must be trending but Twitter won’t show it, they’re as bad as the fake news media

JUST IN: The #WalkAway, who is being used by Twitter users to let people know that they are leaving their ‘original’ political agenda, most of them from democrats to republicans, was actually second on trending on Twitter, but Twitter didn’t say it was.

#WalkAway where are the msm and conservative news stories about this? Ignore it and maybe it will go away? I think not!

#walkaway should be in the top 3 of trending hashtags, yet it’s not even showing in the top 20.
We’re getting too big for them!

The above are just recent examples. People are clearly inspired and maybe it doesn’t even matter if it trends on Twitter. Word is getting out.
