Allow me to #introduction myself.
Frater Gorgias, aka spookyboi, I’m here to shitpost and chew bubblegum...and I’m all out of shitposts.
I’m a 30ish cis-het guy (he/him/y’all). I work at a university as a researcher on terrorist propaganda and internet identity. I’m in a triad relationship with 2 people I love to death, and I’m an unabashed pinko commie soyboi libcuck.
If you follow me you’ll get a lot of memes, political talk, bad takes, bad bits, and links to things I love to hate.
Hello. Have you experienced trauma as a result of a social media algorithm? If so, lets talk. I'd love to interview you for a new project I'm working on.
I will explain what I mean by trauma in thread.
Please retweet/share widely.

it took 17 nanoseconds for Kamala Harris to be rebranded as a courageous populist silenced by billionaires. this is only true to the degree that the billionaires who funded her campaign jumped ship for Buttigieg when her poll numbers tanked https://twitter.com/ironstache/status/1201937726028812289
One reason why so many American conservatives believe that a billionaire named Soros funds a vast liberal conspiracy that runs the world, is that a billionaire named Mercer funded Breitbart and other right wing media outlets that pushed that narrative. https://twitter.com/schwartzbcnbc/status/1201596389756751875
