    Everyone, get your tickets to this

    I don't know why not have used "Everyone, get your ticket to this." Why is the plural form necessary?
    When Ja’Mal Green, a prominent black activist and Bernie Sanders supporter in Chicago, saw that Donald Trump was coming to the University of Illinois Chicago, he knew what he had to do. “Everyone, get your tickets to this. We’re all going in!!!! ‪#‎SHUTITDOWN‬,” he posted on Facebook last week.

    The plural isn't necessary but it's natural. I can't think of an explanation.
