"We want to give the working class power over what powers our lives."

"We want to make sure Con Ed is prioritizing us over their shareholders.

In this rate case, they're locking us into a fossil fuel future.

We can't be the city that never sleeps if they keep turning our lights off!

It's time to reclaim our utilities!"
"It's time that we stop relying on corporations for our necessities.

In the private sanitation industry we see companies putting profits over people's lives."

And it's the same with private power. #PublicPowerTownHall

I hate to be contrary, but transformer explosions/fires cause a blue light in the sky. It’s from arcing. When they blow/explode, it is usually a flash. Fires will stay blue longer. The size of the fire at #ConEd & the cloud formation in the sky, caused it look the way it did.
During hurricanes, you will see the sky light up like blue fireworks as these things blow & go on fire.
Now what caused the fire may be what we should be focusing on? #QAnon #TheStorm

Interns don't run the social media accounts of major corporations, especially not in the middle of a communications crisis.

I will gladly die on this hill, as a senior social media staffer who has worked late into the night writing apology tweets one by one from a brand account.
Here's a new year's resolution you can all feel free to borrow: Stop treating social media as either a force destroying democracy or a pointless, shallow field that doesn't require professional expertise.

Make up your mind! Are we interns or the civilization-threatening nerds?
For the record I am a nerd trying to not destroy civilization and living with a lot of ethical angst over my chosen field. But I'm not an intern!!
