Meet @IanRoberts9 and @JoanneB37379026, two curiously similar Twitter accounts that are in all likelihood retweet bots implemented by automating the Twitter website. (Amusingly, @IanRoberts9 was restricted by Twitter while we were looking at these accounts.)

By examining other accounts that retweeted the same tweets as the two bots, we found 16 matching the pattern (web browser + 24/7 activity.) The newest batch (from 5/11) all have the same hashtags (#PresidentPelosi, #PelosiPower, #TeamPelosi, and #StillWithHer) on their profiles.
To the total surprise of probably no one anywhere, these accounts use stolen profile pictures easily found via reverse image search.

First, @NancyPelosi is the most informed, fearless, strategic thinker we could have to take us forward in our fight against tRUmp and the duplicitous GOP.

Why is else would she have been, along with immigration, the R's primary campaign focus..
They fear her.

The Democratic #Pelosi Opposition Letter has now been released, and signing it are: Anthony Brindisi (New York) and Ben McAdams (Utah),-who've yet to be declared winners in their races-and: Jim Cooper (Tenn.), Bill Foster (Ill.), Seth Moulton (Mass.), Brian Higgins (N.Y.),
Stephen F. Lynch (Mass.), Ed Perlmutter (Colo.), Kathleen Rice (N.Y.), Tim Ryan (Ohio), Linda T. Sánchez (Calif.), Kurt Schrader (Ore.), Filemon Vela (Tex.), and newly elected members Joe Cunningham (S.C.), Max Rose (N.Y.) and Jeff Van Drew (N.J.). THIS MATTERS. #TuesdayThoughts

Let's talk about this letter signed by the 15 Democrats-elect who say they won't vote for Pelosi. (McAdams signed but his race isn't called yet.) 1/ #mondaymotivation #teampelosi
That's 15 out of at least 233 Democrats who will vote for Speaker in January. (3 seats are still too close to call.) That leaves 218 Dems, which is how many she needs to be confirmed.
But "not voting for Nancy Pelosi" and "voting against Nancy Pelosi" are two different things. 2/
Right now, there is no one challenging Pelosi, so it's hard to say who these Dems will be voting *for* if they aren't backing her, but let's back up a minute.

If a few of the people who say they aren't voting for Pelosi vote "present", those votes don't count for anyone. 3/

Today I’m excited to endorse @NancyPelosi for Speaker of the House of Representatives.

It’s really important that all progressives push to elect her in the coming weeks, for 3 good reasons.

Short thread below.
1. From 2007-11, @NancyPelosi was the most effective and progressive Speaker of the House in many decades.

If the bills she passed out of the House had made it out of the Senate as well, we would be living in a dramatically better world.
On issues from climate change to labor law, a public option to financial regulation, campaign finance to voting rights, @NancyPelosi organized and supported a bold progressive agenda.

She has pledged to be even bolder next year.

1/With regard to the Speaker battle that we currently have going on in Dem Congress there seem to be two schools of thought. One, that Pelosi is 78 yrs old, is a very unifying figure for the GOP & therefore the perfect foil for them right now. As well, that it’s time for the
2/Dems to move in another direction. The other, that Pelosi is an experienced, tough & highly successful strategist & SOH, & that she’s well versed enough in party politics & the workings of Congress, the likes of McConnell, Graham et al, to be able to see their nonsense coming &
3/therefore will enable the Dems to put up the necessary fight that is before them in order to STOP the corruption as much as they can & move our Country forward. I don’t think that these factions are that polar. I think that all of us want to see the Dems succeed going forward

This is not good news.

These #FiveWhiteGuys

@RepTimRyan, @sethmoulton, @RepPerlmutter, @RepSchrader and @RepBillFoster are leading a small group with tea party tactics to change the rules for how House Speaker is elected.

They are fighting to take down @NancyPelosi.

1/
These #FiveWhiteGuys are willing to go nuclear in order keep the woman most responsible for leading us to, what turned out to be, the greatest Congressional #BlueWave in our party's history from the office she is the most qualified for, by leagues.

Damn, 2016 on repeat.

2/
Because #FiveWhiteGuys ganging up on a far superior woman is just great optics for our new Democrratic majority to embrace.

I thought that shit had happened enough TO our
party, now we have it IN our party.

Such fun, except actually the exact opposite of that.
