MP's tweet shows effect of social media

Tonight during the 'Red Nose Day" (a TV charity event that raises money for UK and African causes) Fiona Mactaggart (@fionamacmp) the Conservative MP for Slough tweeted the following message:
" I will give £1.00 to Comic relief for every retweet of this message before 9pm"

Come 9pm the total re tweets of her message totalled 14,268 in number.

Now some people have criticised Ms Mactaggart for blatantly buying RT's whilst others have praised her altruism.
Either way, it looks like she is going to stick to her pledge and write a cheque out for the full amount.
