Much of the conversation coalesced around the #savemi hashtag. But something else awaited those who entered #savemi in their Twitter search bar -- namely, an ad from Target urging holiday shoppers to "Make them twice as happy" with buy-one-get-one offers on select toys.
Target's surprising ad placement was pointed out by Stacey Burns, who linked to the screengrab at the top of this post:a notoriously union-busting corporation to advertize on a hashtag popularized by folks pissed off about the Michigan legislature's union busting.
