Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak Tweets Support For Bernie Sanders

Woz Feels The Bern

Steve Wozniak, the man who co-founded Apple with Steve Jobs and Ronald Wayne, appeared to tweet his support for presidential candidate Bernie Sanders early Tuesday.

“Down on Republicans and Democrats,” Woz wrote. “#Bernie2016 #FeelTheBern.”

Though Sanders is running for the party’s nomination as a Democrat, he considers himself a democratic socialist and is one of only two independents in the U.S. Senate.

Wozniak recently said in an interview with Esquire magazine that he considers himself “a civil rights believer” devoted to privacy and human rights in an era of rapidly developing technology. To that end, he helped found the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a privacy and digital rights group.

In May, Sanders wrote a piece for Time calling on the government to “end Orwellian surveillance of every American.”

Clarification: Language has been updated to clarify that Sanders is an independent, not a member of the Democratic party, although he is campaigning for the party’s nomination.
