It's even worse than it appears.

I'm working on the docs for Drummer's twitter verbs today, and came across a few examples from the early days of Twitter lists. #
The reason Warren's campaign failed is that once she was the frontrunner and people got a good look at her, they didn’t like her. She’s kind of what you’d expect, a Harvard professor. They do well at the top of academia, but don’t have a popular touch, and I’m being generous. Certainly there was some sexism, people who wouldn't vote for a woman under any circumstances, but she became the frontrunner with everyone aware of her gender. A woman candidate could have won the nomination in my opinion, someone like Amy Klobuchar or Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer. It's ridiculous to conclude that a woman couldn't get the nomination, esp since the Democratic nominee in 2016 was a woman. If Warren wants to be president she's going to have to listen to people outside her bubble. People who will, as they say, speak truth to power. #
When you hear about new strains of Covid that are ripping into India, as an American do you feel as if it's far away and won't affect me? Does it make you want to get vaccinated? What if our vaccines don't protect against the new strains? Are you ready for a new lockdown?#
As a basketball fan this is how I look at where we are with Covid in the US. We have a 2 point lead going into the fourth quarter. Our two star players are out with injuries. Our fans are going home, they think the game is won. I know anything could happen at this point.#

You know those obnoxious sites that pop up dialogs when they think you're about to leave, asking you to subscribe to their email newsletter? Well that won't do for Scripting News readers who are a discerning lot, very loyal, but that wouldn't last long if I did rude stuff like that. So here I am at the bottom of the page quietly encouraging you to sign up for the nightly email. It's got everything from the previous day on Scripting, plus the contents of the linkblog and who knows what else we'll get in there. People really love it. I wish I had done it sooner. And every email has an unsub link so if you want to get out, you can, easily -- no questions asked, and no follow-ups. Go ahead and do it, you won't be sorry! :-)
