Chatting about how to build a stronger and more fair America - and what we can learn from the NBA. https://t.co/5zN24CUUHY https://t.co/7u1HCYqUmS

Quoted @ryanlcooper

devastating. Greg Abbot just shoved Texas right into the meatgrinder https://t.co/Gr4sLfXY1e

fun how there's no real short-term accountability for these reckless choices by state leaders https://t.co/UbT6z91Fm8

the plan for reopening women's roller derby was created by a biostatistician, infection control nurse, & epidemiologist. it not only has thorough guidelines for reopening but also closing again. @cragcrest on this model, which other leagues could emulate: https://t.co/nIh9tf8w80

Spot on analysis from @billmckibben about what the climate movement can learn from the successful #StopHateForProfit campaign against Facebook https://t.co/gUvb64zJZc

Quoted @TaylorLorenz

Woke up today to ppl trying to reset my passwords and hack into my accounts, vicious, disgusting threats. Apparently a bunch of VCs, tech ppl etc spent all night bashing me in Clubhouse. @pdavison is this the community you sought to cultivate? How do you plan on addressing this?

speaking from experience this awful shit just doesn’t happen to white men who critically report on this industry. regardless of what you might think of ‘tech bias’ in journalism you should be very concerned if your cohort has adopted the same response to criticism as gamergaters https://t.co/kIvUsvOdFV

Quoted @cwarzel

Like a lot of ppl I’ve been reading about defunding police/prison abolition and I’ve been struck by the elegance of the idea at the core of the movements: these are broken institutions beyond reform. It’s made me think about another institution: Facebook https://t.co/T5YbOB6Tkb

my column from last night and a lil thread https://t.co/0gLHQnRAxd

Quoted @can

Someone on Clubhouse just said “why does press have a right to investigate private companies, let the market decide, I don’t understand who gives them that right”

amazing stuff https://t.co/6zCzOPxzIn

Quoted @anarchotrash

a man being evicted is asked by the judge if he has evidentiary issues with the argument that he owes rent. tenant says he doesn’t know what that means but his wife died and he hasn’t gotten his covid payments. judge asks again if he has evidentiary concerns, grants the eviction.

thread. we’re living in the bleakest timeline and it would only require a handful of empathetic and empowered public officials to stop some of it. https://t.co/SMPX4Xwnv2

i hope every executive at Facebook reads this by @juliacarriew https://t.co/jivZNLetYH

the most pushback i would ever get from tech co.s is when i’d use the phrase from Kate Losse’s book ‘boy kings’ but not sure how else you describe the behavior of extremely powerful men who cannot stand scrutiny and rely on their adoring public to slander their enemies

exchange is clarifying in the sense that some of the men involved helped fund/influence an industry & culture that built our hastily assembled platforms w/o much input from those most vulnerable to hate/harassment & ushered in a golden age of toxicity. of course they don’t care!

Got my answer https://t.co/UU6I8weqrv https://t.co/hOWYEb0Evl

this thread is just so disheartening. here's somebody reaching out - clearly distressed. and she's met with 'not my problem!' and a block. wonder what they think of the targeted harassment taylor is getting right now on their behalf? probably think it's not their problem either https://t.co/MfM4Ui0n1X

To sum up the past week in MAGA Nazi d̶o̶g̶w̶h̶i̶s̶t̶l̶e̶s̶ bullhorns: • Team Trump posted the Nazi political prisoner red triangle 88 times • he RTed White Power vid • they're selling a baseball for $88, no more no less • their t-shirt swag is precisely an Iron Eagle https://t.co/PwhLL9RtL9

none of this kind of trollish (in the truest sense of the term, not the colloquial way we use it now) stuff is new out of this group. but it's unnerving how emboldened Trump campaign/admin staffers are right now to move past the racist dogwhistling and into...this. https://t.co/6nWZrhORGY

this is what i was in the middle of writing when i posed this question - i included some of the solutions in the column. thank you all again...you're all very good and smart and i wish you ran these spaces tbh https://t.co/T5YbOB6Tkb
