Why to support Bernie Sanders over Elizabeth Warren in the upcoming democratic primaries: a thread. #Bernie2020 #Warren2020
Bernie Sanders’ 2016 candidacy inspired a movement across the country for the working class, women of color and students that has been unmatched in my lifetime. He has challenged people to think outside of the democratic establishment and to consider true, structural change.
1. Bernie’s proposals consistently offer us the BEST opportunity at the most amount of change. We can see that in many ways, one being his proposal to cancel ALL STUDENT DEBT, not just some of it (which is what Warren has proposed).

1) When #Warren2020 & Marco Rubio Agree on #China

A Tweet Storm, Part 1 of 14.

Houston Rockets general manager @DMorey lit a fire by speaking his mind: “Fight for Freedom. Stand with #HongKong.” The Communist Party raged.

@Perth_Tolle
2) The Twitter reaction-to-the-retraction was intense. Texas Senator @tedcruz has designs on the White House in 2024.
3) You know who else wants to be sworn in in 2024? Florida Senator @marcorubio. His @NBA reaction is one of many hawkish-on-China tweets for him.

This #WinWithWarren #Warren2020 tweet earned a curious burst of bot affection. Five of the seven accounts to retweet it are automated: @Brief_Era, @Bizz_Profile, @4_Clues, @_4_Emo, and @FlyDcMdVa.

@Brief_Era @Bizz_Profile @4_Clues @_4_Emo @FlyDcMdVa @ZellaQuixote How do we know these accounts are automated? Two obvious indicators: each of the five accounts posts 24/7, and each uses custom software to tweet (in this case, apps with similar names to the accounts.) Their profiles seem more commercial than political.
@Brief_Era @Bizz_Profile @4_Clues @_4_Emo @FlyDcMdVa @ZellaQuixote The tweet at the beginning of this thread ain't the only one to be retweeted by all five bots; thus far, they've retweeted 105 of the same tweets. All are political and most mention Elizabeth Warren, with occasional guest appearances by other candidates.

Zuck seems to be interfering with 2020 with these leaks, which should be tagged #Warren2020. When he calls Elizabeth Warren an existential threat to Facebook, he's given us all one more reason to vote for her.

Elizabeth Warren: An Existential Threat to Facebook
Flashback to when the Kremlin inadvertently campaigned for HRC with:

Hillary Clinton: An Existential Threat to Vladimir Putin

(related: Vote for Donald Trump: A Putin Puppet)
Maybe all the candidates should tell us to whom they're existential threats?

Beto: An Existential Threat to Guns

Williamson: An Existential Threat to Emotional Turbulence & the Dark Forces of Thor

Trump: An Existential Threat to America

Elizabeth Warren has the best supporters! #Warren2020
Very cool! #Warren2020
This one changed her handle, but luckily her new @ comes up when you do a search on the old one! #Warren2020

I think the BEST thing to happen yesterday is that more people on the Sanders team are now pushing back on that “essentially the same” narrative regarding the differences between Sanders and Warren. This, at a time where it’s increasingly clear that we need to.
These are a few of the things that I saw being posted:

1: Sanders did show up for Standing Rock protestors. Warren did not, instead boxing support for the pipeline workers to continue to work, which would destroy Native land (and our) water supply.

#Sanders2020 #Warren2020
2: Sanders will not receive corporate cash in the primary nor in the general. Warren has already taken corporate cash via a prior election cycle, and will accept corporate cash in the general.

Exactly what Russia wants. Same Russia who's been losing energy $ since the US expanded their energy sources.

Again, why is #Warren2020 doing the bidding for Russia?

Russia even funds "green" groups in the US to protest against fracking - See "Sea Change."
Russia doesn't like all of our natural gas and LNG development, either.

environmental.pasenategop.com/092518/
The same Russia who Warren and the rest of the left claim is the puppet master of Trump.....are doing everything they can to actually HELP Russia while Trump's been sanctioning the hell outta them and becoming a threat to Russia's energy industry.

@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.

Elizabeth Warren has a lot of plans!

And it’s hard to keep track of them.

But don’t worry, here’s a thread of every single plan Warren has put out (so far)!

#TeamWarren #Warren2020
Universal Child Care

“In the wealthiest country on the planet, access to affordable and high-quality child care and early education should be a right, not a privilege reserved for the rich.”

Breaking Up Big Tech

“Today’s big tech companies have too much power — too much power over our economy, our society, and our democracy.”

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.)

I think Elizabeth Warren is going to win the Democratic nomination and go on to beat Trump to be the first female President of the United States.
I've donated to Warren, spread her positive qualities and even do some neighborhood running in my Warren shirt (tired in this pic!) to raise awareness. One of her bumper stickers is even going on my car!
I prefer Bernie to her (and all others) just slightly due to some economic and foreign policy differences (those who say they're nearly identical on policy aren't correct, more on that in a sec) and his lifelong consistency, but she would make a fantastic President.

In 2015, I was an early supporter of & 2016 DNC delegate for Bernie Sanders. I am an immigration lawyer, and am active in progressive politics and causes. I live in NH, where politics literally spills into my backyard.

I now support @ewarren. #WinWithWarren

May I share why? 1/
I like, respect, and admire Bernie Sanders. To me, he’s a “values candidate”, and I am grateful for his contribution to moving the public discourse - and the Democratic platform - towards more just policies. 2/
But ... Elizabeth Warren @ewarren strikes me as the right person at the right time to lead what will be a long process of restoring some collective sanity and healing deep societal fissures in this country. 3/

You guys, I’m screaming.

You can get periodic photos of @ewarren’s dog Bailey sent to your phone by texting “Bailey” to 244-77.

My absolute favorite campaign content.
Omg I’m so happy to see so many people signing up for pictures of Bailey!! ❤️😭

Sign up to volunteer for @ewarren next! Come knock doors with me so we can make Bailey’s mom our next President!

I don't want to interrupt this important Bailey content but @ewarren just dropped ANOTHER plan!

Check out her plan to level the playing field for entrepreneurs of color and close the racial wealth gap. #Warren2020

🧵 Women win elections. We must fight the new gaslighting. Please try this at home. And on social media. And in the supermarket line.

What is happening? Now that Quinnipiac polls are saying that any top Democratic candidate could beat Trump in the popular vote, there is an insidious lie spreading.

2/
Why is this happening? Because conservatives and others who want Biden only see that Democrats believe they can vote for the candidate they want. For me that candidate is @ewarren. The gaslighters are playing on our trauma and fear that Trump will get reelected.

I'm about to indulge myself in a bit of #Warren2020 game theory (or whatever you call it) - pure speculation for the most part, but intended to react to the "Can she win tho?" school of thought. Feel free to ignore what follows if it's not your thing. 1/
First a disclaimer: OBVIOUSLY polling isn't linear. Over the course of time you'll get outliers in both directions, this observation is thinking of trendlines over the long term. The base premise is that every other candidates among the leaders got an "announcement bounce"... 2/
which Warren, having gone first, didn't really get. Rather, so far, her polling results have followed a fairly steady trendline which might be more projectable in terms of future results than would typically be the case. I'd like to graph it but I've forgotten those lessons 3/

"Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) rolled out a package of proposals on Wednesday designed to boost the fortunes of America’s small farmers, instead of the agribusiness giants who increasingly control the sector."

#SheHasAPlan, & this is a thread. 1/

I want to preface this with the fact that I'm new to and learning about our current farming and food system. But I was in the military and I worked in healthcare. A lot of the same problems of monopolization and corporate greed were evident in those systems too. 2/
Consider this: the cost of living has gone UP in just about every area of life: housing, healthcare, childcare, education, transportation.

But not food... Why is that? 3/

DAMN 🔥 Today was the first time I heard #ElizabethWarren’s speech after the 2018 midterms and I’m about to throw her all of my money!

“Let’s make sure that nobody rewrites history. This resistance began with women and it’s being led by women.”

I need that on a shirt.
“Two years ago on a very dark election night, millions of women watched in horror as Donald Trump was elected President. They didn’t like it.

But they didn’t whimper. They didn’t whine. THEY FOUGHT BACK!”

This 2018 midterm speech is everything 🙌🏻 #Warren2020
#ElizabethWarren on the women who got elected in the 2018 primaries:

“They refused to let anyone shut them up or stand in their way. And that’s how real change begins!”

1-Sen Warren told a story today about ending up where she stood this afternoon, on that podium announcing her candidacy.
When her first child was 2 she “had a notion” that she wanted to go to Law School, so she made a list of all the things that she had to do to make it happen
2-& one by one ticked off the things on that list until she got to the last, Childcare for her daughter, Amelia. No matter where she looked she couldn’t locate that childcare, until the weekend before the first term began, when she finally found a decent daycare-with “cheerful
3-teachers, lots of toys & ‘nothing [that] smelled funny”..there was one caveat, they only took kids who were ‘reliably potty trained’ & Amelia was not.
Sen Warren said that she 5 days to make that a reality,

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.)
