For more than a week before Donald Trump's first campaign rally in three months on Saturday in Tulsa, Okla., these tech-savvy groups opposing the president mobilized to reserve tickets for an event they had no intention of attending.

While it's unlikely they were responsible for the low turnout, their antics may have inflated the campaign's expectations for attendance numbers that led to Saturday's disappointing show.

Social media users on various platforms, including the popular video-sharing app TikTok, have said they completed the free online registration for the rally with no intention of going. The New York Times reported that Korean pop music fans were also encouraging people to do the same.
