Here's what happened on Twitter today that caught my eye.
Amazon employees in Alabama will hold a vote on whether to unionize. President Biden released a powerful statement.
I love Sen. Brian Schatz on Twitter. Do you see what he did here?
Workers in Alabama – and all across America – are voting on whether to organize a union in their workplace. It’s a vitally important choice – one that should be made without intimidation or threats by employers.— President Biden (@POTUS) March 1, 2021
Every worker should have a free and fair choice to join a union. pic.twitter.com/2lzbyyii1g
Biden has been president for about a month now. Time for a recap.

Elie Mystal said what Mayorkas couldn't.
"It takes time to rebuild an entire system and to process individuals at the border in a safe and just way," DHS Sec. Mayorkas says.— Evan McMurry (@evanmcmurry) March 1, 2021
"It takes time to build out of the depths of cruelty that the administration before us established." https://t.co/3XtW7w1HEP pic.twitter.com/eNenTodMgs
This is also why whenever I talk about @TheJusticeDept (my beat) I *always* emphasize how Biden and Garland need and should be given TIME. Cause Barr and Sessions BROKE JUSTICE too.— Elie Mystal (@ElieNYC) March 1, 2021
And make NO mistake: Republican attorney generals, Republican judges, and Republican Supreme Court justices, will frustrate Biden's attempts to *fix it* and EVERY GODDAMN TURN.— Elie Mystal (@ElieNYC) March 1, 2021
McConnell stole the courts SO THAT it would be harder for Democrats to fix what Republicans broke.
Finally, I'm sorta loving this.
