Top five tweets

A feature of 60Left will be the weekly Top Five tweets list, with references and texts, and at times, some additional commentary.  These are the top five performing tweets in terms of audience reached, primarily through RTs.  The timeline varies.  They are taken from the last 30 tweets that met a minimum threshold.

This week, the top five tweets that have performed best during this period fall into four categories: corporatism, progressive politics, vegan, and revolution/political action.

Here they are, from top to bottom:

Corporatism
