After news broke that the billionaire businessman was expected to file paperwork to get on the ballot in Alabama’s Democratic presidential primary, Warren quickly sent out a tweet that was one-tenth congratulations and 90% snark.
“Welcome to the race, @MikeBloomberg!” Warren’s tweet began. “If you’re looking for policy plans that will make a huge difference for working people and which are very popular, start here.”
The senator’s tweet linked to the calculator for billionaires on her campaign website to help them figure out how much they would pay under her proposed wealth tax.

Many Twitter users were impressed by the power of Warren’s Twitter game.
You're so good at this.

Dude's been in the race for 15 minutes and he's already a twitter chalk outline. It's rough out there.

Wasn't there 2.5 hours ago when I first looked at the tool!
Which makes it all the more hilarious!

Another person speculated why news of Bloomberg’s possible presidential run surfaced a day after fellow billionaire Bill Gates griped about what he might pay in taxes under a Warren administration.
Nothing makes billionaires more politically active than the thought of getting taxed. https://t.co/5e6791RV6L
