wow these folks will do a *lot* of lying to distract from the fact that they belong to churches that sexually abuse children, and they want to increase funding to those abusive institutions https://t.co/5LW57CR5N6

Velvet Rope is @JanetJackson's greatest era for remixes and b-sides, so this release is going to be extraordinary. It took *so* much effort to gather all of these 25 years ago, so it's super exciting to have so much good work be accessible. https://t.co/JyydZhOTo7

when you get the cold email pitch and the text formatting shows which lines they copied & pasted out of their script 🥴

lol my kid got assigned a TED Talk that he had to watch as part of a homework assignment and I just got kicked out of his room where I was supposed to be helping him with homework because I had pointed out too many things I was critical about in the talk

“There’s a priest here who has never met the person who passed away?’ It’s like having an MC rapping raps that he didn’t write.” https://t.co/RHYNPO518L

Am at one of our favorite neighborhood diners and they’re having the actual The Bear moment where they got slammed with 200 online orders and aren’t able to turn off app ordering. Seems very unpleasant, hoping the back of the house folks hang in there!

This trope is so old and so obviously wrong that we’ve been debunking it for literally decades. https://t.co/ilmkrmgtbi

They start out owing @placardabuse about $100k right out the gate, all of which should come out of the NYPD budget. https://t.co/xBiYFNVghX

There are so many desperate, sweaty untalented dudes in nominal positions of power in tech. Though I will say, in 20+ years, Jason Calacanis stands out as amongst the top in terms of sheer embarrassing foolishness, even separate from his funding of white supremacist shitheels. https://t.co/mTHyEjJ97q

Any story like this NYT piece which refers to “Asian American parents” can 100% be disregarded due to being intentional misreporting based on being gamed by a small cohort of parents who don’t represent most of us who want more equitable schools. https://t.co/SD0IAQB7P5

One thing you can always count on is the shitheads at the Post have far more hateful rhetoric towards NYC and its people than even Osama Bin Laden did. https://t.co/q7I1edKvvE

One key thing to understand about McKinsey is that they got *millions* of taxpayer dollars to simultaneously help the tobacco industry push cigarettes and vapes and to help the FDA ostensibly reduce rates of tobacco use — without disclosing the conflict. https://t.co/Sw9qAmIh2y

It’s just algorithmic optimization. Charts used to be a crude measure of a song’s cultural impact; now saying that a song has charted longer is like praising a product for having good SEO. You can purchase ranking, either directly or by hiring experts to do it for you. https://t.co/wUJHt7jtVw

Just remembering @flytetymejam talking about how much he liked Coolio’s verse on the remix of Janet’s “Runaway”. It’s a gem, and makes a charming song even better, which Coolio was great at. https://t.co/XRA6Ps4ZDr

One of the things that got me most excited about Twitter in the early days was the cool (and funny/weird) bots people would build. After a few years of losing their way on this, I love that they’re bringing back the good bots. (And even happier about the tool that’s helping!) https://t.co/peocUXoZkF

I love seeing @pomeranian99 at the @StackOverflow Flow State conference describing coding as “constant frustration punctuated by occasional moments of joy”. Which is… very apt.

Is there an academic name for the phenomenon when a movement finds successes, and then the leaders of that generation get angry when the next generation comes along and sees those hard-fought wins as the old-fashioned orthodoxy that they need to move past?

I love this simple, effective @glitch app offering up all the essential info for a local election in British Columbia. This is what the human internet looks like, regular people making helpful & useful things for their communities. https://t.co/ZOk7msS0og

We should do this in New York City, where: 1. Jaywalking is so common as to be considered a birthright, but... 2. More than 90 percent of jaywalking summonses are written to Black and Latino people. https://t.co/sIitTJTgFH

For decades, conservatives have twisted the 14th Amendment for their own aims. Today at the Supreme Court, Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson forcefully explained its real history: "to make people who had less opportunity and less rights equal to white citizens."
04 Oct, 2022 - 03:08 PM UTC

Justice Jackson explicitly reading the reports from the drafting of the 14 Amendment to explain that it was “not a race blind idea.” Extraordinary

It used to be a joke that killing puppies was something so heinous that it would be unimaginable that someone actually did it, especially a politician. Well, Dr. Oz actually tortured and killed puppies.

This Supreme Court might overturn 63yo precedent that says an employer cannot sue workers for economic damage under tort law for engaging in rights (striking etc) that are protected under sections 7 & 8 of the NLRA. My God. https://t.co/tOKKofqrqq

4/ The concept of the rest areas originated with deliverista Sergio Ajche who said the idea occurred to him about two years ago, during the darkest days of the pandemic, when delivery was in high demand and rest spots were scarce. https://t.co/B4S68iYZe6

When Prince officially changed his name to an unpronounceable symbol in 1992, Warner Brothers had to send floppy disks containing a new font to the press so that they could type the artist’s name. (Image: @anildash)

It's heat season, and NYC renters will soon be waking up to the smell of burning dust and the sound of old radiators clanking off the cobwebs. For those whose landlords don't flip the switch, there are steps you can take to put their feet to the fire. https://t.co/vzWI40IgFk
