After Super Tuesday, I said Bernie Sanders should have withdrawn before he was humiliated and risked hurting “big reform” candidates that followed him.

Of these 4 states, he won just 5 counties—in Idaho (with a whopping 3655 votes, combined)

@Karoli The GOP elites treat their own rank-and-file supporters as poorly as they treat anyone else they deem to be beneath them. It would be great if more Republican voters would see that, but I won’t hold my breath.

@karoli You never explained why you chose masto.cloud. Did you know folks there already?

@Gargron I saw this posted a batrillion times. Is there no spam cop for this kinda stuff in the masto core yet, or was this novel?

What's the backstory here? He's posted a bazillion times. I'd been meaning to ask if people get to appeal?

@Gargron Please see [external messenger] question when you have a moment?

I am just amazed at how much talent this season of @americanIdol@twitter.com has found. They finally learned they didn’t near the losers and silly shit and just focused on the really authentic talents that now show up in every city, every year, now.

And what about Fast Food workers? Will they all be wearing gloves and changing them 20 times a day? Not all stores use gloves anymore. They once seemed about to be ubiquitous in food service. Then gradually, they vanished. Let me guess, deregulation again?

SO LISTEN:
If you’re not yet in a full-throated, hair-on-fire panic over yet, Dr. @LizSpech@twitter.com’s thread will get you over the hump.

You’re welcome.

I think most people aren’t aware of the risk of systemic healthcare failure due to because they simply haven’t run the numbers yet. Let’s talk math. 1/n

Thanks @NYTimes@twitter.com, but after 5+ years of campaigning for president, and we’re only getting a profile like this NOW? ^@marmel@twitter.com

Epidemics are God's way of teaching Republicans math.

RT @LizSpecht@twitter.com

We can expect that we’ll continue to see a doubling of cases every 6 days (this is a typical doubling time across several epidemiological studies). Here I mean *actual* cases. Confirmed cases may appear to rise faster in the short term due to new test kit rollouts. 3/n

Truly sobering analysis: US more vulnerable than many countries to owing to combination of high numbers of uninsured, many w/o paid sick leave, and a leadership that has downplayed the challenge while not preparing the country for it.

Coming up next on @TheLastWord@twitter.com, @ewarren@twitter.com’s former student, and a very good choice for @potus@twitter.com herself, @katieporteroc@twitter.com.

I assumed Jack was going to rev up the feature launches to try and quell the Singer rebellion, but this will backfire.

Charles and I have been on Twitter from the start. He knows of what we speak. This is precisely what will happen with . And their minions and trolls will screen cap the hate and circulate it as images or animated GIFS… forever.

This is the kinda stuff that puts my friend @karoli@twitter.com into a fetal position, whereupon she quietly prays for Twitter to be hit by an asteroid.

1/ I run Media Matters (a media watchdog organization). I want to say something about @ewarren@twitter.com's departure from the race. Horserace, polls, nomination aspect aside aside, we will all feel the effects of Warren's absence from the race, whether you realize it or not. Here's why...

If you were thinking of skipping this thread, that would be a big mistake on your part. Every word of it, should be read and processed slowly and carefully. We’re running out of country.
