Mike Bloomberg’s campaign has spent the last month unapologetically performing the digital equivalent of dumping buckets of fresh garbage into the trash fire that is internet discourse in 2020, apparently with little or no concern for the toxic side effects.
The first sign that the Bloomberg campaign was prepared to test the unwritten rules around digital campaigning came in mid-February, when a coordinated “influencer” campaign flooded Instagram with paid content promoting the image of the 78-year-old billionaire as a bumbling but lovable dad just trying to get down with the kids.
Bloomberg is also paying a team of “deputy field organizers” to post scripted campaign messaging to their social media accounts.
Finally (so far), on Monday the Bloomberg campaign’s Twitter account published a series of fabricated “quotes” that purported to “guess” Bernie Sanders’ views on various “despots”.
