But also: Twitter has been helpful and, as cheesy as it sounds, made me a better person. Yes, I sometimes become snarky and (very occasionally) even cruel
, but I also try hard to follow activists, pay attention to thoughtful people, and listen to many who simply… don’t look like me.
As for the book, I quoted Twitter many times in this newsletter, and there’s a reason: it is on Twitter that I found a great community of people that engage me, share things with me
, cheer me on when I share
, and up when I struggle. This has been a crucial part of writing, and I’m thankful for it.
So, this newsletter will be rather simple: just links to my best/most popular Twitter threads related to the book. You’ll have to brave Twitter’s oft-confusing user interface – but I swear it’ll be worth it.
Two things you should know:
1. Each tweet below holds a longer thread. To see it, click/tap on the blue bird icon in the upper right corner.
2. If you find yourself in a situation where my tweets suddenly stop and other people’s responses take over, look for a tiny orange “XX more replies” link to continue reading my thread.
