Hey, #TeamPete! Real talk as we get ready for our Weekend of Action.

In this photo, I am a nervous wreck. Let me explain.

Monday night, my husband and I hosted a Pete-Up — a chance for anyone who likes or is curious about @PeteButtigieg to get together, ask
questions, talk about the election and the campaign, and generally hang with cool, like-minded people.

Most people would assume, with my mega-interest in presidential politics, this is totally my jam.

It is not. It is SOOO not.

I am an introvert. I hate small talk. I hate
hosting. I hate dredging up every insecurity that’s been percolating in my head since middle school. I HAAAATE the deep dread wondering who’s going to show up (and getting all the last minute cancellations from people who are equally as anxious). I cried and grumbled at

1/ Here’s a 🧵 of all the endorsements I’ve found for @PeteButtigieg, organized chronologically. If I accidentally omit anyone, I’ll add them at the end. I’ll also add new endorsements as they’re announced.
Thank you, endorsers!
2/ I believe @SteveGrossmanMA became the first to endorse #Pete2020, on 4/11. He is a former DNC Chair, former Massachusetts State Treasurer, and current CEO of the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City, a non-profit that trains inner-city entrepreneurs.…
3/ Grossman called Pete “a Midwestern, down-to-earth, smart, savvy, in-touch candidate” who can flip industrial states. “My concern is the future of the US... I think Pete has the capacity to be the beacon for an awful lot of people who really feel a deep, deep sense of concern.”

Symbolism of the color palette used in @PeteButtigieg’s 2020 Presidential campaign: a thread
(📸: @WTVYNews4)
I went to the Design ToolKit on the website, and it turns out that each color in Pete’s campaign has symbolism to it. Pete thinks everything out very thoroughly, I didn’t even realize it went right down to the colors!
So, what does each color mean? I took the meanings off his website so you can view them in his thread! The page you can find it at is here:

A little while ago a former dutch politician wrote a column about @PeteButtigieg

I took the time (and google translate ;)) to give #teampete a translation. Hope you enjoy!


A thread⤵️
Aaron Sorkin, as screenwriter of the TV series The West Wing, demonstrated a deeply romantic view of American politics, full of lofty idealism and moral leadership. Summarized in one statement by chief of staff Leo McGarry about the search for the next president:
“You take the smartest, most decent, honorable person you know, and you make them president.” In the series, this ultimate good man, Matthew Santos, then succeeds from a seemingly hopeless position with majestic speeches and the right moral compass to win the election.

About climbing my 1st 14er, campaigning for @PeteButtigieg at 14,000ft, finding community with strangers, an electrifying moment, and the biggest surprise of my life!
We arrived at the #MtEvans trailhead around 7:30am, the peak was lost in fast moving clouds. #14er
Mt Evans magnets & shirts don't lie, the GOATS! So awesome.
We had goats greet us at the trailhead, we kept our distance &
ogled them with delight. #14ers
#TeamPete, I brought my @playmobil #minime & a #Pete2020 banner for some inspiring photos exploring #AmericatheBeautiful.
#SummitLake parking lot, with another 2,00-odd ft to ascend to the peak of #MtEvans, a #14er that I can see from my house, SE of Denver!

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.

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.)

“Residents have seen improvement under Buttigieg. Conrad Damian, from the SE side, noticed a greater focus by police on being visible & having positive interactions w/ people. He also credits the mayor for use of technology to improve response to crime.”…
To make more headway, Pete made a push for police transparency that allowed residents to see what was happening & hold the PD accountable. The transparency hub is advanced for a small city.
There has also been a push to diversity the SB police force. The front page of the website is a call for recruits. So far, Mayor Pete says, they have not been able to get as many black applicants as they would like, but it remains an ongoing effort.

These are @PeteButtigieg’s “Rules of the Road” for his campaign. Great guidelines for all of us who want to represent what he has to offer! #Pete2020 #PeteForAmerica 1/10

In another thread, @Asians4Pete asked how we first encountered @PeteButtigieg. My story is kinda long (or maybe I'm just long-winded), so I'm starting a different thread. The operative word is "long" 😬. 1/31

I moved to the US to attend Notre Dame. One of the first people I met was the chair of the English department there. So basically, unlike most of my fellow Americans, for as long as I've lived in this country, I've known how to pronounce Buttigieg. 2/31
(Aside to @Chas10Buttigieg: Buddha-judge is not how you pronounce Buttigieg. As any #desi will tell you, that's not even how you pronounce Buddha.) 3/31
