@ZellaQuixote A duo of extremely similar real estate bots (@RealtorFairfax and @FairfaxVAAgent) were the first two automated accounts to retweet the preceding tweet. Based on a brief jaunt through their timelines, they seem more focused on retweeting political hashtags than real estate.
@ZellaQuixote @RealtorFairfax @FairfaxVAAgent The third bot retweet comes to us courtesy of @BernieBot_2020, which retweets various Sanders-related hashtags (#Bernie2020, #FeelTheBern, #NotMeUS, and #NoMiddleGround.) We've run across it before.

I'm going to quote something I saw on Reddit about Yang's UBI & put it into a Twitter thread.

This way I can bookmark it and use @threadreaderapp to unroll it, not to mention make reference use of it.

So away we go!
#Bernie2020 #FeelTheBern #NotMeUs
Here is the question posted on the Reddit forum "SandersForPresident".
#Bernie2020 #FeelTheBern #NotMeUs
Answer --

Well first of all, Yang argued with Bernie. Bernie was just answering a question asked during an interview. First off let's talk about the pitfalls of Yang's vision for UBI and how that would impact us. Yang wants to implement UBI

Hi @egg509!

I feel as though we need to have a discussion about your 3 tweets below 👇🏾

I invite you to have an adult conversation with me. Allow me to address your tweets directly, mmk? /1

#Bernie2020 #FeelTheBern #NoMiddleGround
Let's tackle your tweet about how us Berners have no respect, morals, integrity etc.

We actually do! And a LOT of it!

Bernie's movement is a moral movement which has lots of similarities to MLK's #PoorPeoplesCampaign.

#Benie2020 /2
We believe in human rights that many Democrats themselves don't believe, like giving those incarcerated the right to vote as example. We also believe things like EDU are human rights along with housing.

Journalists comparing Bernie to Trump is what we should come to expect the same day 100s of Bernie supporters post heartfelt videos about their struggles with student loan debt, an anti-immigrant immigrantion system, our racist criminal justice system, and our health care system
Like, fuck, read the goddamn internet.
I bet not a single person saying Bernie is Trump can tell me how the campaign does volunteer intake. They'll tweet until the weeee hours of the morning about how Bernie is like Trump "because crowd sizes," but none of these PAID RESEARCHERS know why that matters to the campaign.

A short thread on Elizabeth Warren's daughter and co-author of "The Two-Income Trap" (2004) and "All Your Worth" (2006) Amelia Warren Tyagi.

Just some information I learned recently #FeelTheBern #Bernie2020 #Warren2020 #Election2020 @HootHootBerns @MyLifeIsMunitz
Amelia Warren is the founder and current president of the Business Talent Group.
#Warren2020 #FeelTheBern
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amelia_Wa…
Amelia Warren founded Business Talent Group in 2007 along with Jody Greenstone Miller. It seems like it's a pr firm mixed with hiring "high level independent contractors" aka the gig economy, but for VPs and execs.

We started looking at automated activity (and potentially other aspects of) tweets containing various #<candidate first or last name>2020 hashtags (e.g., #Warren2020, #Kamala2020, #Bernie2020, etc.) We examined tweets from Jan 1st - July 3rd, 2019.

cc: @ZellaQuixote
Looking more closely at the 2020 hashtags that have both a significant percentage (we used 10% as a cutoff, 3%-ish is average) of automated activity and at least 1000 tweets, we see sizable volume for tweets posted via VK (Russian Facebook-esque social network.) What's the deal?
The VK activity in the 2020 hashtags comes from 21 very similarly-named accounts. Account names are the display name with "Im" prepended (e.g., "Alberta Swift" = "@ImAlbertaSwift.) All tweets were posted via VK, and none tweeted before 2018 (despite some being created in 2015.)

@rheaume76 Danielle, I am going to be absolute best to explain things to you in hopes you understand & I'll be civil in the process, ok? I promise. If you have any questions, please ask.

Let's go! /1

#Bernie2020 #FeelTheBern #NoMiddleGround
@rheaume76 You call us sexist but in reality, we're not sexist, we're pissed as hell. It has absolutely NOTHING to do with ones gender but with the fact that many of our elected officials in DC don't represent us, the people, any longer.
/2

#Bernie2020 #FeelTheBern #NoMiddleGround
@rheaume76 Look what's happening right now as an example. Pelosi caving to Trump's demand over funds at the border. Do you honestly believe THAT is acceptable? I don't. Many don't.

See, us Berners are sick of Democrats who act like Republicans.

What if companies like Walmart, Exxon, Amazon, Apple, GE, etc all paid taxes? What if in order to get tax breaks, they had to work together to purchase huge parcels of land where communities were built using container homes to house the homeless & poor?
/1
What if companies had to work for their tax breaks in ways which helped solve social issues? What if companies were treated like employees; work hard & get a raise? But in the form of tax breaks?
/2
THINK. How many hospitals are sitting empty and/or abandoned around the country? How many factories sit forgotten about? What if these companies rehabed them into apartments for the poor & homeless? /3

Climate Change. The biggest issue for voters in 2020.

Joe Biden? he doesn't support a #GreenNewDeal and wants an incremental approach. We have 12 year to fix shit. He'll kill us all.

Joe Biden is completely out of touch with the day & age we're living when when it comes to climate change.

Hi! I've been an organizer for twenty years. I've worked more than a dozen political campaigns and scores of union campaigns in that time. This app is NOT ORGANIZING. Let me explain. 1/
To be fair, there is a key part of this app that _is_ like organizing, and can make people uncomfortable: assessment. Organizing requires assessing where people stand and recording that data. Many people don't love that. 2/
People especially don't love it when they don't know it's happening. And that's what's deeply wrong with the app. It's ONLY about assessment, not organizing. Because organizing requires engagement, and this app doesn't. 3/

"A man goes home and masturbates his typical fantasy," wrote Bernie Sanders. "A woman on her knees, a woman tied up, a woman abused."
Guess we know why women in #feelthebern were sexually harassed, it’s a Sanders fantasy. #DropTucker
cc: @mmfa
"A woman enjoys intercourse with her man — as she fantasizes being raped by three men simultaneously,"
ummm this women begs to differ but maybe gang rape is a socialist thing? @SenSanders #TuckerCarlsonTonight
Sounds like Bernie loves him some toxic masculinity, dumb women are just trying to pull themselves together.

As Bernie Sanders gears up for a 2nd presidential run (yay #Bernie2020) Twitter is awash with folks who create a mess, point to mess, & say see, we can’t have messes.

We mean the troll army of horrible David Brock’s Shareblue Media.

Here’s a 19 thread tweet for #SOTU19 /1
Who’s David Brock?

Brock’s a self-described “witting cog in the Republican sleaze machine.”

He coined ‘Anita Hill is a little bit slutty, a little bit nutty.’

He wrote The Real Anita Hill, which he freely admits was not so much a book but a character assassination of lies. /2
Bernie Sanders accurately refers to David Brock as scum of the earth. /3

We ❤️ Bernie.

Happy Monday! Let’s kick it off w/a Bernie Sanders accomplished a bunch list!

We see folks parroting old smears spread by that nasty Super Pac, saying the Bern achieved nada bc he’s an uncompromising ideologue who doesn’t know how to get things done./1

occasionalplanet.org/2016/03/04/a-l…
Bernie’s in the midst of a distinguished career as a social justice activist & elected official. He’s been a mayor, member of Congress, and a senator.

Bernie’s life has been honed by decades of hard work as a public servant on behalf of poor & middle class Americans. /2
Bernie ran for president-without taking Wall Street $, corporate $, or having a Super Pac for unlimited dinero.

He’s had the integrity to live his life according to progressive values. He’s never shilled for big banks & corporations. That’s quite an accomplishment in DC./3

That’s exactly the point I’m making - we are making this about Trump-Russia when the larger issue is Putin-US and how he is able to manipulate all sides - remember, many social media posts took *both sides* of the political divide. You can’t argue they were solely helping Trump.
2. Note also the imagery and hashtags (#FeelTheBern) Wikileaks used in this tweet when they released the DNC emails - clearly aiming to also splinter the Democratic party’s base - knowing well that the voyeuristic, ratings-obsessed US media will gladly do the rest.
3. Could Wikileaks' meddling have backfired and instead fired up Clinton's base and propelled her to victory? Of course! But we choose to believe (without any evidence) that this hurt her campaign, helped Trump, and cost her the presidency.

Tbh my biggest issue with @SenSanders #MedicareForAll idea is that it isn't radical enough, which is probably the result of political considerations. If it were up to me, I'd go much further than the basic "insure everyone" idea. (THREAD)
A lot of people seem to be complaining about how catastrophically expensive and economically unsound the idea is. But the root cause of this problem is the private sector that will likely retain the rights to the technology and medicine the Govt will buy.
So there's actually a very simple idea for reducing the healthcare expenditure on the Govt's part: take a bat to the price-fixing system of patents on drugs and technology that the Big Pharma bastards have been getting away with for so long.

I changed my profile pic & the last line in my bio

Do not fear I have lost my focus or my desire to fight for the side of Right

But I'm going to shift tactics a bit because the Left has given us an opening

They have lost their ever-lovin' minds & are showing it
My bio was
Former Special Forces "so expect precision fire"
I did that to rile up PC speech bullies who say you can't use scary metaphors

I'm not caving a bit on the #FreeSpeech front
If anything I'm doubling down
But I'm going to change my tone a bit

From wicked to mocking
For the Right to prevail
We must draw our side together
By reconciling w/ folks who agree on issues but don't love #Trump
&
Reaching out to folks who used to be Democrats
Until their party went full #FeelTheBern

They don't want to be socialist America-haters
So join us

Since this article doesn't seem to have any interactive element to it, I'm going to hold a series of polls to determine the winner: #DemBracket #DemPrimary2020 #2020Polls #MarchMadness #BracketOfRandomThings #Bracketology #FITN @TheDemocrats
First matchup in the #Lefties portion of the bracket! Of these 2, which would you rather support in the 2020 Democratic primaries for president?
1. @SenSanders i.e. @BernieSanders #Sanders2020
2. @ninaturner #Turner2020
#TwitterPoll #FeelTheBern #OurRevolution
(Oops, I forgot to include the seeds; Bernie is 1st seed and Nina is 8th seed. The '1' and '2' by their names aren't seeds, but rather correspond to the poll options. I'll fix this in the rest of them, seeing as someone's already voted in this one.)
