So, ICYMI, I have been permanently suspended from Twitter for saying a very minor bad word at a racist. If you are still on the bird site and have not already done so, could you please share this link this morning so friends know how to find me? Thank you.
I guess I should do a srs introduction: I write literary fiction. You can find everything I've got published / available here:
I also have an agent. We're revising a novel about an online fan community in the aftermath of the 2016 election and we're gonna pitch it soon. It's gonna be rad.

being ostracized because of overlapping or being part of a culture within an oppressed group can be as actively harmful as systemic bigotry within the larger society.
don''t think your needs place you above driving people to despair. if anything, it can hurt double, because it feels like you have *nowhere* you belong.
so you can lose me with the "yeah, but you won't get fired or attacked for it". that's bullshit and people should know better.
From my perspective, the most provocative conversations to be had right now center around three things:
3. Lowering the entry barrier.
I think if we can do these particular aspects well, growth will take care of itself.
I think focusing on growth exclusively is just going to replicate the problems we've seen in other major social media platforms.
And at this point, it's just a good idea to try something else.

She also calls for the redistribution of wealth.

I switched to Coke for my caffeine for two weeks because it was on sale and then back to tea yesterday.
Like "WHY AM I SO IRRITABLE AND SLEEPLESS?"
... Twice as much caffeine. Probably psychoactive for me.
God damn it.

periodic reminder that i came here to escape twitter, as did a lot of other people. when things start sounding like twitter in a bad way -- conflicts, endless acrimony, emotional policing, bad takes -- that's not always the best day (or days) for me on here.
i'd add reply guys and trolls into this, but they're *always* shitty, and always present, so.
thankfully, they're less hegemonic than on hell bird, but they're definitely here.
Yes, you have to attribute tweets or toots and ask permission and probably pay to use them.
You have to do it in a novel.
You ABSOLUTELY have to do it in poetry, because no matter how long the poem, chances are it's a substantial amount of work.
No amount of sarcasm is gonna save you from plagiarism (sans attribution) being frowned upon.
