Mike Bloomberg The billionaire democratic Presidential candidate who bought into the 2020 election, and whose money made the DNC change their debate rules is now paying young social media stars to make him look cool.
The Daily Beast alleged that former New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg is using Tribe, a talent pool of young “micro-influencers” described as social media stars with between “1,000 to 100,000 followers,” seemingly to make his presidential run look like it has grassroots youth support. He has commissioned these micro-influencers, the Daily Beast wrote, to “create original content ‘that tells us why Mike Bloomberg is the electable candidate who can rise above the fray, work across the aisle so ALL Americans feel heard & respected.’”
Bloomberg, who has thus far paid his way to the tune of allegedly $270 million into becoming one of the contenders in the Democratic Presidential primary, is using a comparatively novel tactic compared to his fellow Democrats.
This material under the category of “Content We’d Love From You,” asked influencers to “Show+Tell why Mike is the candidate who can change our country for the better, state why YOU think he’s a great candidate.”
For what it’s worth, The Daily Beast claims the Bloomberg campaign encouraged paid promoters to “be honest, passionate and be yourself!”
