Lady Gaga – the most followed Twitterer, with almost 78 million followers – gains followers faster than Twitter adds new accounts.
This includes events like Hot Nozzle Summer (HNS) or Hot Cicada Summer (HCS) or saying that there is no HGS ("cancelled" lmao), & we are instead having STEM Girl Summer (I've seen so many versions of this one). All these "creators" conveniently ignoring an important factor. 5/8 https://t.co/BHFK2x5vhT
Now it's been used as meme in all aspects from Old Navy ads to even academia. Memes are not inherently bad but when they are about or based off things created by Black people and tied to Black culture we need to take a step back and think about the impact. 2/8
Hot Girl Summer is a phrase created by Black rapper Megan thee Stallion and basically means you having fun, being confident and unapologetically yourself. This phrase has since taken off with Megan getting very little credit for it as is normal for Black creatives. 1/8
Can’t even give Taiwan’s silver medalist this 🇹🇼 in a tweet: https://t.co/zKNOC1BTmA
You are so disillusioned. Seven years after, and tweeting egregious misinformation about something you do not know anything in regards to. https://t.co/bKTZMBFla1
@Blackamazon Like in all those comparisons, what's striking is the absence of Sha' Carri AS she's made visible. Hollowed out. A cardboard doll being agitated. It's not about her and we knew what was happening already. It's quite troubling.
Like it don’t mean or do shit if you say there are different rules for white men. And you’re the exact kind of person who would tell a Sha’Carri Richardson if she reported a Alec Hadzc To kick rocks But okay shocked when he starts hurting other women
Be on the lookout in your circles for this shit. The right is gaming lefties especially those on the fringe. Hard. https://t.co/iWo5K8ECkG
“Rules are rules”—which is why Sha’Carri Richardson is suspended from the Olympic Team for 1 pot violation, but Alen Hadzic gets to compete despite his suspension for investigations into his repeated sexual assault “Rules” seem magically absent for some🤔 https://t.co/JtJBp8IwIf https://t.co/uSzR6gKSj8
I get what folks are saying.. and I need this to stop Because it doesn’t do what folks think it does . Especially if we continue to be “object lessons “ but not active voices People ENJOY us being treated unfairly and use the objectification to further it https://t.co/bi0iUxFpcF
Today, an email sent from executive vice president (and former Bush homeland security advisor) Fran Townsend, describes the allegations as a "distorted and untrue picture of our company." She called the DFEH lawsuit "truly meritless and irresponsible." https://t.co/wtbp7fx9Ev
Again comms professionals saw how well white women skated on harm from “Toxic Twitter” and moved it over to tech https://t.co/9oMuSar461
I saw this, & started thinking about the ‘pipeline’ for Black women PhD-holders https://t.co/irHK0R7n5a
this might sound crazy but please believe me: you gotta watch this baron corbin interview. the tough luck corbin gimmick is a revelation. https://t.co/8W29IUVnn7
Corbin is a good worker and this gimmick is perfect for the “millennial” dissatisfaction moment https://t.co/P9Qn7sVBOA
A single incident of someone shoplifting less than $1000 from Walgreen's got 309 mainstream news write-ups. The same company admitting it stole $4.5 million from its own workers got, apparently, zero. https://t.co/wxCGGaWYIh
What we pay attention to? Who we focus on ? Who is the SUBJECT of the sentence ? Matters https://t.co/saO4KWDrNJ
