I *try* to watch trailers with cool detachment because I've been hurt before but yeah no this cast, a Jimmy Cliff reference and "Let's Start" by Fela Kuti feat. Ginger Baker - I don't care, just hurry up and release it https://t.co/Rg9Pv2j5hP

One option I'd love here is to cursor over a candidate name/avi and have their wins highlighted: The rest of the field disappears from the map and only the one candidate's color field is visible, just as a clarifying visual (also I'm a little colorblind) https://t.co/9Zw0YmnzrJ

A 23-year-old AOC endorsee with a resume in activism but no past political experience looks poised to win my City Council seat over a field including the Brooklyn Democratic establishment pick https://t.co/xPrJ2CA7FS

“Wall Street breathes a sigh of relief,” Glocer said. Some of the billionaires who sent enormous checks to a super political action committee backing Adams, he added, did it to keep a more progressive candidate off the ballot. https://t.co/TANTOZuyXt

It’s amusing that anyone thinks a series the Hawks are probably going to win in 6 maybe 5 is a “contest” 🤣 ATL scores almost every time up the floor - on Milwaukee’s own home court, in Game 1 - and the Bucks have no stops, and no answer for Collins or the very annoying Young!

Can Wiley or Garcia still win? Mathematically, yes. But they’d need to be ranked ahead of Adams on at least 60% of remaining ballots as ranked-choice elimination progresses. Which is unlikely. We broke it down: https://t.co/a2hwCyMNPf

It's a truism that coverage doesn't equal votes but I'm not sure any campaign has ever experienced that split as one-sidedly. Not criticizing Andrew Yang, who was no higher on his chances than some trained observers. A lot of things contributed to this very tilted ratio.

For ranked choice voting nerds: In the Oakland mayor's race in 2010, Jean Quan had 24.4 percent in the first round; the front-runner had 33.7 percent. After the RCV tally, Quan had 50.96 % and Perata had 49.04 %. This is the model that Maya is hoping for.

I covered the Scott Stringer watch party. They were not crazy about the Times being there but they didn’t bar me or photog @AndrewSeng_ Freezing out journalists/outlets for negative coverage is punishment and intimidation, nothing more, and not a good look for a would-be mayor https://t.co/gp4Ztp9uwX

Along with Solstice, June 21 is apparently also Yoga Day, Selfie Day, Take Your Cat to Work Day and World Day of Music. Or maybe just @ariellec Day for short? https://t.co/ZaJyhPrLkY

a major tv show approached a friend about using their video in a news segment. the friend asked for market rate. the show countered with $150 with "all media, worldwide, perpetuity" as terms. the friend said no, of course, because that is obscene.

I'm a day late to this story and per last tweet not a dad but I recognize that a disappointed child is one of the universe's most powerful forces. Votto was of course not reinstated but I understand from the thread that the kid got excellent merch. https://t.co/1OJ4RKxg8Y

I tagged along today while Bowser and Fauci went door to door promoting vaccines. We heard the whole spectrum: many people already vaccinated, others with questions or lacking information, and others firmly opposed to the shots. https://t.co/9rqFdRXai2 https://t.co/2iedFLUbpa

Researching municipal candidates as a voter is not leisurely work but there are rewards. You get a deeper view of your surroundings, some pretty good dish on your neighbors and, based on campaign events, solid tips on where to drink and dine 🗳🥃🥘
