I rarely use Twitter but should keep my feed open these days just for Bernie info!

Subscribed to the YouTube and set a reminder. So happy you posted that here.

Will mention this on FB for those interested.

help it get started. Twitter is a great source of information on all that is happening with his campaign. It's amazing how many people are jumping on board, forming groups, not waiting to be told what needs to be done. IF you use your Twitter acct, I have found that following as many Bernie Support Groups as possible gets people united, you follow them, they follow you (eg, there is now a Group for every state, and big cities are starting to form their own groups also).

It really is beginning to look like the movement Bernie wanted to start has begun and this group who are planning to document it seems like a great way to keep his events in the 'news' when the MSM decides to ignore him.

It sounds like a great idea and I do need a group. I can't start one myself, the farm takes too much time and I would be very bad at that but I can help and help a lot. I would love to do that.

Again, thanks. It looks like I will be learning how to actually use twitter after all these years GO BERNIE

As for Twitter, I just used it for news, by following people who were interesting to me. NOW I am using it totally for Bernie.

All you have to do is follow as many of his support groups, eg, @AlabamaForBernie or @NYForBernie etc and soon you will be finding so many more to follow, and they will follow you back. It's where the real action is frankly. Partisan forums are fine, but there's too much nonsense to sort through whereas YOU control your Social Media account and can focus on important stuff.

I suppose it will be available later? Our wonderful 3rd world Internet barely is getting me on DU at the moment. Download speed 0.09Mbps. Crap.

It might get better, it usually bounces around this time of the day.

Maybe I should suggest Internet service to all citizens would be a good idea, maybe like most of the rest of the world?

service. We are with Hughesnet. After two years I was informed a few days ago that 'you have used up your monthly allotment of gbts.

I was shocked. Did someone change our account? 'You were told this when you signed up'. Uh, no we were NOT. We were told this was the fastest most reliable and MOST EXPENSIVE btw, internet service in the country.

I won't go into more detail, but they offered a 'token' so that we could 'make it to the beginning of the month'.

Really? And what would be different at the beginning of the month, I asked?

Finally after threatening to report them etc etc, they reconnected us.

I have found out recently that they are limiting access, them charging more for 'faster more reliable service' and that this is against the law. I forget what it is called, but millions of Americans are being scammed.

You can report them as apparently supposedly there is an effort to stop this. I'll believe it when the Corp controlled elected officials actually do something about it.

Anyhow, the coverage hasn't started yet, they are playing videos of Bernie's speeches and interviews while they wait I guess.

and they are off and on so who knows?

We have Wireless tower to tower. One group that provides it. Satellite does not work during storms and that was not good in Kansas because the Digital does not work either. Now we find out that the wireless goes out as well so we depend on our phones.

We are not be ratcheted down there are just too many people without access to Internet out here in the boonies. We are 3 miles from fiber and/or cable but they won't bring it out because there are not enough of us. So they cram all of us onto a couple of towers, none very close and we lose signal easily. Rarely on a good day we will get 5 Mbps down for a short time then it is wonderful and we can actually download part of a movie and it will finish up the next day or so. We have unlimited data but we just can't ever get it LOL

Going back to try again. I know I will get it eventually it would just be nice to be a part of it live.

Good luck with your access. The fact that they are doing that to you when they are certainly not supposed to is just so wrong but who is going to stop them. The same thing happened to us with a Verizon home hook-up. 3 days into the month all our data was used up at 2AM. It cost a fortune to just make it through the month barely using the Internet and a fortune to get out of the contract. Sucks. Good luck.

before he came out, chanting 'FEEL THE BERN' and the cheerleaders chang: 'Give me a B Give me an E etc. Just people in the audience having some fun.

The intro was great, reminding people of Wisconsin's Progressive Uprising and talking about how he wasn't there to tell anyone who to vote for, but the feeling was and I know it's happening, that all the protest groups from the past few years, are rallying around Bernie's candidacy.

The crowd was estimated, so far as I have seen in reports, at 10,000.

The livestream had thousands of views, according to the streamers, translating into 20,000 viewers.

I'm sure it will be repeated somewhere, but it is great to see it live.

I would be reluctant to debate him if I were Hillary, and if I happened to be a Billionaire's puppet I would be terrified.
