Senator Elizabeth Warren’s personal phone calls to supporters of her presidential campaign — in which she thanks them and talks about their policy concerns — are scoring points among voters online, The Guardian reports, with people swapping stories on social media.
In an Instagram post about the calls, Warren wrote, “For most candidates, ‘call time’ means calling wealthy donors and asking for money. Not me. I’m spending ‘call time’ thanking small-dollar, grassroots donors who give what they can. Chip in what you can, and you might get a call from me to say thank you.”
A flood of supporters went online to share stories of their calls with Warren — or expressed regret after hearing a voicemail from the Massachusetts senator and realizing that they had missed her call.
The downside to trying to break your phone addiction is you might miss a call from @ewarren!!!

Some people shared satirical accounts of imagined conversations with Warren. And in some cases, the senator responded.
Elizabeth Warren called me and she has figured out a plan to shrink my massive pores and combat my overactive t-zone
