@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.
@mjc How much safer can I be? I wrap myself in Saran Wrap when I leave the damn house, IF I leave at all, which hasn't been often.
@Gargron I will float that to some folks. I just don't have many contacts in this universe yet, but I plan to
@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?

If you’re not yet in a full-throated, hair-on-fire panic over #covid19 yet, Dr. @LizSpech@twitter.com’s thread will get you over the hump.

Coming up next on @TheLastWord@twitter.com, @email@example.com’s former student, and a very good choice for @firstname.lastname@example.org herself, @email@example.com. #ms

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