  • Really enjoyed speaking w @sandechen, WGA Award+Grammy-nominated Writer + Game Designer, for my piece on women in video games for @current. #
  • I do have to say though that if you're a company on Twitter it's kinda weird to not accept questions about your company via Twitter. #
  • Will do, thanks. RT @Portable Email your questions to! in reply to Portable #
  • POC women who work IRL in the video game industry RT @MissWasserman @dcap @current are U looking 4 main characters who R female & of color? #

  • re: tattoo debate - some of most brilliant+successful ppl I know have plenty of ink. I have a back piece. Getting sleeves. It's all relative #
  • .@cnnireport I find it odd when media ppl who find themselves unemployed see it as static + complain about paying taxes that help everyone. in reply to cnnireport #
  • @portable Hi there, will you be offering any scholarships to low-income students + industry interns to attend the curators conference? #
  • Hi to new followers who found me thru #womenlead I tweet about @poczineproject, adoption, tech+social media, inequality & rad misc. ish. #
  • I used 2 get really upset when ppl misjudged me or trivialized my accomplishments but then I turned 30 & said U know what fuck it. I'm rad. #
  • Kids: when ppl "hate" on you, find the "gold" in that. Sometimes there's a kernel of truth/wisdom. But opinions are like assholes u know 2/2 #
  • If I truly cared what small minded guys (or women) thought, I wouldn't be living the awesome life I am living today. 1/2 #
  • There R men (peers) who support my work+there R men who harass me via email to express hate. Honestly, I only care about what I think of me. #
  • OMG Awesome! <3 RT @theChrisDavila @dcap I'm going 2 do the same process next year, foster to adopt. Watching your updates on this closely! #
  • I think my biggest challenge during this "adopting through foster care" process =dealing w the adults, not the kids. Return our call already #
  • 2/2: However still boggles my mind that a social worker wd not respond when they know that a person wants 2 adopt a kid from their caseload. #
  • Adopting from foster care 1/2: @adoptolderkids thankfully provided me w training to mentally deal w social workers not returning calls. #
  • .@laurenthedark i don't know why this made me laugh hysterically but it did. i think i just really like the name. ty for sharing this! in reply to laurenthedark #

  • .@wordwhacker Nice to hear you speak as opposed to my first time where you were BTS at the Columbia workshop :) #womenlead in reply to wordwhacker #
  • Hashtags are also like rabbit holes. Variations lead u 2 different locations ex: #wjchat = journos #jwchat = christians #womenlead #

  • I'm looking forward to attending #womenlead 2day with @jewyorican, @corvida and my sister who's in town from Cali :D #
  • I hope @portable is offering access for some low-income students + interns at the curators conference and just hasn't announced it yet. #
  • Seems like a no-brainer 2 me: If u can afford 2 let press attend yr event, u should provide 5-10 free passes 4 low-income students + interns #
  • .@portable Hi there, will you be offering any scholarships to low-income students + industry interns to attend the curators conference? #
  • Endless Canvas zine #1 3, 4 #bayarea #graffiti #
  • Not exactly blowing lid off of anything by pointing out public facts. Trolls give me 2 much credit +truth makes some ppl mad. Why u mad son? #
  • Dear male and female assholes who email me to tell me to shut up: No. #
  • but it's worth it, if you succeed “@AnTagOnUs: Feel like people in NY gotta work 2wice as hard to accomplish their goals.” #
  • Choose your future. Choose your life. @GetGlue #Trainspotting #

  • re: previous tweet, don't be afraid of trying things U "don't know." life=experimenting, so demystify that unknown 4 yourself + enjoy it. #
  • If U want 2 be a good curator + find work curating content & experiences 4 companies, start a curation project of your own. Learn by doing. #
  • "You can't be any geek off the street. Gotta be handy with the steel, if you know what I mean. Earn your keep." #
  • So much happening today: my sister arrives from CA for the 1st time, several interviews to handle, my apartment is gross/needs cleaning... #

  • "I begin with an idea and it becomes something else" - Picasso = It's ok for your plan & execution to evolve from original strat. #
  • .@SouthBronxUnite TY for RT! Full disclosure: I have tried FreshDirect before but now understand the issues. in reply to SouthBronxUnite #
  • .@corvida is playing Plague for iPhone & is scaring me with her knack for infecting the world with deadly diseases. Over 75m people. Eeeks #
  • .@CajunDave Oh I just read some of your tweets. You're 1 of those Obama & Jew hating racist trolls. And here we pass, strangers in the night in reply to CajunDave #
  • @CajunDave I don't know what you're talking about but cool nose picking pic? Have a good night in reply to CajunDave #
  • The news cycle is 90% an Aqua Teen Hunger Force joke paid to distract you from real issues many people are too afraid to write about. #
  • "Oo giant sodas = enemy!" How about our gov can afford 2 serve healthy school food but we still allow Taco Bell +vending machines there. Yo! #
  • "Oo giant sodas are the enemy!" How about Bloomberg giving FreshDirect Bronx waterfront land that was supposed 2 to be for community gardens #
  • "Ooo giant sodas are the enemy!" How about ppl who pay farm pickers so low it's cheaper to buy junk food than the food they pick? #
  • Something more alarming than 7-Eleven selling giant sodas is why poor people can only afford crappy food + why schools still serve crap food #
  • lmfaoooooo I heart you cc @corvida RT @laurenthedark: Suck it, assholes. Pardon. #
  • .@santagati yeah I was just clarifying for my imaginary followers. I know you feel me on this :) in reply to santagati #
  • .@santagati I think you agree with what I'm saying but you're just saying it in a different way. in reply to santagati #
  • .@santagati I know :) but in this case I'm speaking as a reader not a content creator/ad sales exec/etc. I tire of ppl selling mediocrity. in reply to santagati #
  • If @motherjones had a paywall I would pay if they also fixed their awful mobile site & had a cool iPhone app. No doubt. #
  • There's a reason I pay 4 print subscription 2 @motherjones & visit the site. They R so on their shit. More than made up 4 early #ows gaffes. #
  • 2/2 meaning, if u have paywall, you better have some shit behind there worth my $. GOOD long form journalism + interactive. News is free. #
  • Expecting people 2 pay 4 news is like expecting Fox News commenters 2 make sense. People pay 4 innovation not reformatted press releases 1/2 #
  • Yup RT @everythinglibra: #Libras a have their own unique yet logical way of viewing the world and the people in it. #
  • .@corvida just showed me the super secret settings in Tweetbot. Go go gadget girlfriend! #
  • #buzzfeedbooks One Hundred Years Of Memes #
  • About time RT @womensmediacntr: BREAKING: @Facebook Appoints @sherylsandberg to Board, Adding First Woman Director #
  • After this summer I am no longer attending conferences where the entire speaker lineup is white or male. You bore me w your cluelessness. #
  • Please don't say yr event/conference is open/diverse if u don't make it possible for at least some low-income ppl 2 attend. Stop fronting. #
  • re: my previous tweet, elitism and class bias is so pervasive that many tech leaders are blind to their role in maintaining the status quo. #
  • I don't get why all these tech conferences can afford 2 give expensive swag but not 2 give free passes for some low-income people to attend. #
  • heehee “@bkbrains: only two spots left in The Art of Oral Sex: A Special Workshop with Babeland on 8.2:” #
  • re: previous tweet, by bogus i mean lame. not anything you can't google or follow on twitter. shadowing a professional = real-world insights #
  • you know ...many of the digital media workshops offered @ schools are pretty bogus. you can learn more by shadowing someone who has that job #
  • #nowplaying AZEALIA BANKS - 212 FT. LAZY JAY #
  • Nothing like a freak rainstorm in NYC to remind me to be humble. Walked around looking like I peed in my pants today. #
  • Just had a great interview with Liz Buckley at @Majesco for my piece on how girls can succeed in the video game industry. Rad tips! #
  • Regardless of what people say or do, you make a choice to let them make you feel inferior or not. That's in your control. Know your worth. #
  • I need to speak to women who work in the video game industry for a @current story. RT + contact me! Thanks! #
  • Rain, rain, go away. Don't come back another day ... or at least until the end of SUMMER because it's SUMMER in NYC, remember? #
  • favorite g+ comment re: my coding-literacy piece: "this is a terribly written article." i've arrived, bitches. #
