Jagmeet Singh Creating A Hashtag About Himself Is The Ultimate Self-Stan

If there is one thing that New Democratic Party leader Jagmeet Singh is certainly good at, it’s working social media. After spending the last month of the election campaign DM’ing with Rihanna on Instagram, sharing rare family pictures on Twitter and uploading election rap videos to Tik Tok, he has now shown that he knows what makes a great Twitter hashtag, and Jagmeet Singh's upriSingh tweet is the ultimate self-stan.

Since the start of this election campaign, Jagmeet Singh has not been afraid to throw himself head-first into the world of social media. The NDP leader has gone viral on several occasions, including drawing a lot of attention when he revealed he'd actually private messaged Rihanna on Instagram, and picking up a lot of views when he shared a video of his “Punjabi Poutine.” 

Now, Singh is proving that he’s no Twitter novice either, using a hashtag that appears to have gone down pretty well with his followers. Taking to Twitter on Thursday afternoon, the NDP leader shared a short and simple message with his 233,000 followers. “I really wanted to use the hashtag #UpRiSingh at least once. That is all,” he wrote.

It wasn’t long before the tweet went viral, having as many as 3,800 retweets and 29,300 likes at the time of writing. Further, more than 4,000 people responded to Singh’s tweet, with the majority replying to praise the party leaders’ sense of humour.

One of Singh’s followers replied to the original post to simply say, “This is a good tweet."

Another shared a similar message, adding, “Never wanted to be friends with a politician before. I love this!"

Equally impressed, another person responded, “Your sense of humour like your personality is wonderfully fresh and honest."

Several people also responded to Singh’s new hashtag by using memes and GIFS, with one Twitter user even sharing a GIF of Rihanna smiling and clapping.

Singh isn’t the only party leader that has tried to pick-up support by using social media platforms. Earlier this month, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau created a Snapchat account, which he then shared on Twitter by saying “Add me on Snapchat.” 

Conservative leader Andrew Scheer also made an attempt to connect with Canadians on social media, by turning his personal Twitter into a Simpsons stan account for a couple of days.

While Jagmeet Singh seems to be totally winning social media at the moment, this online support won’t necessarily equal votes during the election.

With just three days until polls close, it remains to be seen how much of an impact Singh’s social media presence will actually have on Monday’s result.
