I agree with your article, though I take issue with your underlying assumption that #Resistance Twitter unifies around resistance to Bernie Sanders.

I belong to one of the largest #Resistance networks on Twitter, and we prohibit negative messaging about any Democratic candidate.

Our sole raison d’etre is working for Trump’s defeat.

No Bernie conspiracies, no Bloomberg bashing, no “Tulsi Gabbard is a Russian agent,” or anything else like that.

It is sadly true that many people using the resistance hashtag do many of those things. But I think you’ll find that there is a great deal of support for Bernie on #Resistance Twitter also.
