Twitter customers have rediscovered an outdated tweet posted by newly elected US Senator Jon Ossoff wherein he appeared to disclose himself to be a eager Imagine Dragons fan.
Ossoff triumphed in one of this week’s crucial US Senate runoff elections in Georgia, beating Republican incumbent David Perdue. His victory, mixed with fellow Democrat Raphael Warnock’s runoff win in opposition to incumbent Kelly Loeffler, has now break up the Senate 50-50 – giving the Democrats total management as incoming Vice President Kamala Harris may have the casting vote.
Ossoff’s previous job as a movie producer has already resurfaced this week, with the politician having produced a number of Stacey Dooley documentaries in previous years.
A tweet posted by Ossoff in September 2012 is now doing the rounds, wherein he replied to a tweet from Pitchfork – which wasn’t about Think about Dragons – with the phrases: “Wanting ahead to your writeup of the brand new @ImagineDragons album.”

Twitter customers have been sharing their delighted response to Ossoff’s seemingly harmless tweet resurfacing this week. Nevertheless, The Enchantment President Josie Duffy Rice has since clarified that Ossoff’s tweet could have truly been motivated by his friendship with Think about Dragons’ drummer Daniel Platzman, who he went to highschool with.

Pitchfork‘s Critiques Editor Jeremy D. Larson wrote yesterday (January 6) in reply to Ossoff’s authentic tweet: “Mr. Ossoff, sir, I’m sorry we by no means wrote up the brand new Think about Dragons album. That is onerous to clarify however throughout this period of the positioning, we thought it will ‘say extra’ in regards to the album after we didn’t evaluate it? Does that make sense? Good luck with all the pieces.”
