Twitter users are more interested in the potential of a Hillary Clinton indictment than the first Chicago Cubs World Series victory in over a century.
The Thursday after The Cubs scored a historic World Series win turning the tide on a 108-year curse, over 80 thousand people tweeted about it, according to metrics shared by Twitter in their trending section.
But with over 124K tweets as of 12PM Central, the hashtag #HillaryIndictment dominated the trending landscape, meaning more people were talking about the FBI’s renewed investigation into the former secretary of state’s use of private email servers.
Interest in the Democrat presidential candidate’s email case spiked despite the Cubs’ World Series game being the most-watched baseball game in the past 25 years, with over 40 million viewers tuning in.
The hashtag’s trend coincides with information relayed by Fox News reporter Bret Baier on Wednesday, who claimed sources inside the FBI confirmed the agency is continuing their investigation which will “likely” lead to an indictment of Hillary Clinton.
“I pressed again and again on this very issue… The investigations will continue, there is a lot of evidence. And barring some obstruction in some way, they believe they will continue to likely an indictment,” Baier told reporter Britt Hume.
