Why Is #HillaryForPrision Trending On Twitter?
For those of you fluttering around the Twitter-sphere this morning, you may have noticed that one of the top trending hashtags is misspelled.
But #HillaryForPrision is far from an accident.
The hashtag has been around for months, resurfacing due to the FBI's recent reinvestigation of Hillary Clinton's emails. The hashtag is a way, mainly for Donald Trump supporters, to dodge Twitter's censoring tactics.
Here are how some others are responding to the trending typo, including Mr. Trump himself.
