From Jason Del Ray’s “Amazon started a Twitter war because Jeff Bezos was pissed” posted Sunday evening:
Snarky tweets targeting Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren came after the CEO told execs they weren’t pushing back hard enough on critics.
1/3 I welcome @SenSanders to Birmingham and appreciate his push for a progressive workplace. I often say we are the Bernie Sanders of employers, but that’s not quite right because we actually deliver a progressive workplace https://t.co/Fq8D6vyuh9

This is extraordinary and revealing. One of the most powerful politicians in the United States just said she’s going to break up an American company so that they can’t criticize her anymore. https://t.co/Nt0wcZo17g

My take: Amazon executives like SVP Dave Clark are bred tough. They may think such behavior is on brand. Del Ray’s theory is that they’re melting down, panicking over the upcoming union vote.
Not a big deal, but Amazon drivers have been known to pee in bottles. See here.
