„You Can’t Buy Memes – Michael Bloomberg is here to meme. But his controversial approach seems to misunderstand internet culture. – ‚While a meme strategy may be new to presidential politics,‘ the Bloomberg campaign’s national spokesperson, Sabrina Singh, told me in an email, ‚we’re betting it will be an effective component to reach people where they are and compete with President Trump’s powerful digital operation.‘ … The attempt at self-aware humor and the affiliation with a specific sort of Instagram account make Bloomberg’s ads meme-culture-adjacent, but they don’t actually make them memes – which can’t be bought, or at the very least, can’t be bought this simply. … Certainly Bloomberg’s Instagram strategy is helping his campaign on some level. … But the ads do not contain any content other than the information that Mike Bloomberg exists and is running for president.“
