She tweets like once per day. This is her first tweet in 24 hours. Why choose this to weigh in on?!

Quoted @displacedviet

So uh...why is the SPD chief expressing sympathy for a rapist and pedophile? For context, her original reply (which has since been deleted) stated “Sad about this. RIP” what’s going on here? @NikkitaOliver @spekulation @daeshikjr https://t.co/AJPs054ULy https://t.co/oMRrhrVw9J

Quoted @maplecocaine

For like a century, corporate media decided who got “cancelled” & often the people didn’t even do anything wrong (Sinead O’Connor, Monica Lewinsky, etc). But now that social media is deciding who gets cancelled, it’s the most dire threat to free speech that ever happened. Lol ok

Reminds me of the podcast @yourewrongabout https://t.co/YVVkEomsK9

If one were to actually care about the actual wrongs/harms associated with 'cancel culture', it seems to me they'd want to be extremely careful to not let powerful people who don't like being criticized for their publicly held views on the internet glom onto their cause.

Quick question: with this surge in gun violence, why is it the narrative that NYPD is presenting the one that ends up in headlines? Why are we not seeing headlines that say “gun violence surges as millions remain unemployed, and tens of thousands face eviction”?

Whole lot of people took one of these today https://t.co/AS4AATkJ26

@Jennifrrrrr @WesleyLowery Disagreeing is fine, of course. But calls to "stop publishing" someone is the definition of canceling someone.

@Raptormeat @conor64 I've had a publisher and editors who pressured me to stop writing about race because it made white readers angry. I've had groups of white readers literally ban together to try to get me fired. I've had colleagues who silenced me in other ways. This isn't new.

& there it is: Jesse Singal publicly shamed @/jennyboylan for apologizing for signing the letter, which resulted in his followers piling-on her account (see above thread), which was supposedly the very thing the #harpersletter was intended to condemn. bravo everyone, well played! https://t.co/7W9OinFuds

Los Angeles police used the acronym NHI ("No Human Involved") in their reports for years to describe crimes where they believed the victim to be a sex worker, gang member, drug addict, or houseless person. This is what police have always been.

Quoted @DanaHoule

Without getting in to the letter itself, in a lot of parts of the country net worth of $1 million is a lot of people in their mid-40’s & older fortunate to have decent equity in a house in the suburbs who have had steady employment since their twenties + employer match to an IRA https://t.co/YLKEL87BLB

I f'ing love this show & expected this episode to be great, but it was even greater than I expected. https://t.co/IN04GQJE93

@MattWelch @timmarchman @bariweiss @kmele Looking through all of these names. This is impressive, it's like the "Pointing Out That I'm Just Constantly Wrong Is Actually Censorship" All-Century Team.

Quoted @RottenInDenmark

It is still not clear to me what these people actually want? This entire letter just sounds like prominent figures whining about people criticizing them online. https://t.co/7pAEc9A92q
