Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Sanders speaks at a town hall event in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Bernie Sanders' ghost tweeter keeps his Brooklyn accent

Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Sanders speaks at a town hall event in Milwaukee, WisconsinBy Melissa Fares NEW YORK (Reuters) – Last August, Bernie Sanders sat on a Craigslist-bought beige couch in his Washington office plotting to steal the social media spotlight from 10 Republicans taking the stage for the first televised debate of the 2016 presidential campaign.     Next to the Democratic presidential candidate, 74, sat 27-year-old Hector Sigala, his digital media director. For the next two hours, Sigala turned Sanders’ sometimes acerbic, sometimes funny running commentary into a stream of 140-character tweets using the hashtag #DebateWithBernie that stole the show – at least on Twitter. Some 17 million people were reached during the debate, according to the campaign’s Twitter data reviewed by Reuters.
