Warren's Meme Team refers to an unofficial campaign launched by MIT graduate Misha Leybovich to which aims to spread awareness and support for democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren through memes on various social media platforms. The campaign, launched in November 2019, began by sharing their social media strategy. The campaign was widely mocked online for attempting to organize meme culture.
On November 4th, 2019, Warren's Meme Team shared a Google Documents file through Twitter and other platforms which outlines their strategy and vision. It states that "the right understands the importance of memes […] We fight back, in a way that's authentic to our values"(shown below, left). Misha Leybovich is cited as organizer of Warren's Meme Team (shown below, right) and has been interviewed for the New York Times. The Op-Ed NY Times piece states, that "Mr. Leybovich, who says he has spoken to the Warren campaign about memes and also applied for its deputy chief technology officer position, is optimistic that the right infrastructure and coordination can make Warren plans like a wealth tax and universal child care into base-rallying content."
