As part of an effort to attract Amazon’s second headquarters to Colorado, a group of businesses have set up a Twitter account and website called “CO Loves Amazon.”

So far, the website and Tweets includes lots of love from Coloradans, including Gov. John Hickenlooper, Lt. Gov. Donna Lynne and future Hall-of-Fame Broncos tackle Von Miller, who tell why they love the Centennial State and why Amazon should pick Colorado for its next big location.

Gov. John Hickenlooper shows his #coloradoloves and @colovesamazon

But the Twitter account is also picking up comments from people who aren’t so crazy about the idea.
