  • Where is the outrage from the @amandapalmer volunteers? I don’t see it. They seem just fine. Maybe ppl should respect their choice? #
  • Not all of @amandapalmer’s backup musicians are volunteer. Payment varies by city. Those volunteering enjoy it. What’s the problem? #

  • 2/2 Sometimes u must create yr own job when the market doesn’t have what u need. This concept frightens some ppl but it’s true. WIT 2 thrive #
  • 1/2 Final thoughts: Some ppl think entrepreneurship is just 4 the wealthy & white. Not true. I know POC who started businesses with no $. #
  • 2/2 If U R unwilling 2 adapt, 2 learn new skills (many free online resources) & refuse 2 network, yr making it easy 4 companies 2 ignore u. #
  • I know that it’s more than despair that keeps many people unemployed. Racism, classism, sexism & other prejudices are barriers. BUT - 1/2 #
  • 3/3 Stopping a job search out of despair is not the solution. Changing your strategy is. Only stop temporarily to improve your strategy. #
  • 2/3 In ‘05 I didn’t have a degree, was new to NYC w/ no contacts in media & applied to 300 jobs in one month alone. Two called, I got one. #

  • 1/2 In 2010 I tried 2 convince my unemployed exec friend 2 create an online presence & portfolio. 2 years later she’s just starting that. #
  • 2/2 I am lucky I have a staff gig w benefits but when I didn’t I was teaching myself new skills & relentlessly applying & networking. #
  • Past 4 years prove it: having a degree doesn’t guarantee employment. If U aren’t always adapting/learning new skills, you can’t compete 1/2 #
  • You better believe that @buzzfeed et al will have the best #iPhone5 cray cray tweets. It’s funny how sites make $ on public cray outbursts. #
  • I’m just having #insomnia fun, #iPhone5 lovers. It’s your money. But these tweets are hilarious, especially the very angry ones. #
  • Imagine trying to tell an iPhone addict to calm down about #iPhone5 pre-order drama. The look on their face. Yr welcome. #

  • +1 “@louisvirtel: Call me a radical, but I think we'd all like it if Obama addressed the nation as "girl." #DNC € #
  • +1 lol “@ixSEANxi: You could swap a baby mummy with a burrito and the mummy parents would never know stupid mummies” #
  • that would be amazing “@IssaRae: I want to rap to a sample of the Lucy theme song.” #
  • I like how I curate my own comedy show on @twitter at hours I should be sleeping & then comment on my own choices. #
  • lmao “@sbellelauren: if i could eat dinner with anyone living or dead i'd pick all dead because hahaha more food for me” #
  • +1 “@thechrisarmy: They should make a morning after pill for voice mails.” #
  • lmaoooo “@MrHoratioSanz: Some fat dude in a giant SUV asked if I had any money. When I said no, he retorted, "Eat my farts".” #

  • lmao “@bigoletitties: #gleeisback AN #WITEPPL IZ JIZZIN INDEY **PANT** ~SMMFH~” #
  • +1 “@STACEYNIGHTMARE: My sex noises disturb nesting shorebirds.” #
  • Sometimes, late at night when my brain is fried from work/project stuff, all I want to do is RT hilarious shit. @dcap, proceed. Will do. #
  • lmao “@IamEnidColeslaw: gonna chug ipecac then terrorize everyone in this Hollister RT @McDonalds Almost lunchtime! What’s every1 having?” #
  • lmao “@IamEnidColeslaw: Sneeze Guards should be buff men who dress in armor & punch you in the face when you get too close to the food” #
  • I’m not even an @amandapalmer fan but I respect the hell out of her response to the volunteer controversy: #
  • .@amandapalmer’s fans want 2 play backup 4free on her tour. She’s not cheap4 doing this. Look @ tour costs breakdown: #
