It would be great if we could actually get Bernie Sanders to join Mastodon. This is the future of social networking, after all. Just saying
@Gargron oy GEVALT nooo
@Gargron so long as he tags all his toots appropriately with USPOL
@Gargron I don't know if you want him to join to attract more people to mastodon...
Or just because it will be like throwing food to the lions on here.
@Gargron I'll ask him... after all, there IS a contact form on his website... I Think...
@scrapper135 ok boomer
@Gargron careful now this is how you get cancelled by radtown
@_ That’s fine
@Gargron cold and remorseless... exactly what we need in a leader
@_ I see the people have spoken
@_ no thank you, I am going to find something locally, or I am going to bury myself in a fallow field
Me: I will probably vote for Bernie Sanders
Also me: I will dunk on Bernie Sanders on Mastodon.
@Gargron No central admin on Mastodon makes it a less than desirable platform for politicians.
@ndegruchy False, it means politicians can fully control their own social media presence without outside interference
@Gargron 🤷♂️ Agree to disagree, I guess.
@Gargron wait, he can get an account on dolphin.town
"In a recent statement on the fediverse, Bernie Sanders said "EEEE eee EEE E EEEEEEEEE eeeeeeeee""
@Gargron The real question is which instance the campaign would join. Somehow I doubt Bernie would find a warm welcome on anticapitalist.party. Is there even a normatively social democrat (or even democratic socialist) instance? The campaign would probably have to start one.
@Gargron why Bernie Sanders in particular?
@Gargron just sent him a tweet about that.
@Gargron I'm going to send him an invite code for anticapitalist.party.
@Gargron we've got Yang but I think it's just Twitter reposts.
I'd love to see my fave Elizabeth Warren here

@sindastra because content and community brings all the ... to the yard
@Gargron He probably thinks we're just a bunch of gossips.
