  • Q4B Make sure u research & pick right program for U + secure multiple working mentor relationships, post-grad network cultivation. #wjchat #
  • Q4A Nothing. I never went to J-School and I have many clips I'm proud of. My path worked for me - wouldn't suggest it for everyone. #wjchat #
  • I'd like to see a core option for data journalism + ethics, for those who want to bring darkness to light w/ masses of data. #wjchat #
  • I wouldn't advise all young ppl 2 go 2 J-School these days. I'd tell many 2 intern at hyperlocal + build clips, start a Tumblr. #wjchat #
  • Q2B Hire more women and people of color to teach reporting 101 & ethics, help newbs not be so sheltered/afraid 2 cover tough topics. #wjchat #
  • Q2A Pay attention to what successful journos who never went to J-school are doing because they clearly know a few things :) #wjchat #
  • Q2A Invest in sustainable hyper-local news sites that involve working journos as mentors/guest editors, hire recent grads. #wjchat #
  • This was my first year intentionally only "watching" the #Olympics on social media. It was fun. Didn't miss TV, still stayed informed. #
  • I'm having misc. tech issues today. Pardon my scattered tweety-ness. #
  • "Do you remember back in the spring/every morning, birds would sing" :) <3 #
  • #nowplaying Talking Heads - This Must Be the Place #
  • LOL RT @ckanal Job applicant asked to add some "color" to his application, he responds w/ color fonts..and Comic Sans. #
  • For example, I joined the @BxLGBTQCenter board to support services for LGBTQ youth. Everyone has their priorities. Gay marriage is not mine. #
  • For ME, gay marriage isn't t right I want to focus on fighting 4. That doesn't mean I support #chicfila & their hate funding & worker abuse. #
  • Not a black/white paradigm. I can B queer, B against #chicfila worker harassment/anti chicfila & feel that gay marriage is not #1 LGBT issue #
  • In case my stance wasn't clear: 1) I don't support #chicfila funding hate groups/legislation 2) I'm against #chicfila workers being abused. #
  • .@heathr I don't support Chik-Fil-A funding oppressive legislation. My tweets = re: bigots using "free speech" as excuse 2 shit on workers. in reply to heathr #
  • I will now go play video games to awaken my brain & then work on my #sundance script for the second round deadline. #peaceyall #
  • For #chilfila tweet stream, here's my last interjection: the employees don't get paid extra 2 deal wi abusive garbage, from gay or straight. #
  • But no matter where you stand on gay marriage, your views shldnt make a #chicfila employee feel their safety is being threatened at work. #
  • 2/2 I'm happy for my gay married friends but this queer sees other rights as a bigger priority for LGBT, especially POC. My two cents. #
  • I'm one of many queer folks who doesn't see gay marriage as a priority, compared to jobs, education and food security for LGBT. (1/2) #
  • Homophobic in reference to #chifila = Interpreting a concern for worker's rights as trying to force gay marriage down ppl's throats. Lulz. #
  • When a homophobic AA woman accuses me of "forcing an agenda down ppl's throats" = doing the oppressor's work for him. Sad. #keepitmovin #
  • Thankfully most of t hetero people I know are informed enough 2 get that free speech doesn't excuse workplace harassment, which is illegal. #
  • Eat at Chic-Fil-A or don't. But don't harass the employees. That's what's happening now - to gay & straight. Not rocket science. #
  • .@SandraRose I am not forcing anything & I am not "you people." I am against workplace harassment of straight & gay ppl. Good day. in reply to SandraRose #
  • For an example of homophobia cloaked as "free speech," see the tweet I just retweeted. #
  • .@SandraRose Excuse you, I'm not attempting to force "my sexual lifestyle on others," I'm talking about workplace harassment. We're done. in reply to SandraRose #
  • Assholes across the nation R using #chicfila as an excuse to defend their bile as "free speech." Gay & straight. Gross. #
  • If its not clear 2 ppl yet, ppl used t "appreciation day" as an excuse 2 make Chic-Fil-A employees miserable on both sides. That is bullshit #
  • Difference btwn "celebrating marriage" & calling a Chic-Fil-A LGBT employee a faggot. Bigots want to hide their hate behind free speech. #
  • .@SandraRose The Chic-Fil-A CEO and his "appreciation day" supported a culture of hate, hurting his employees on the job. Inexcusable. in reply to SandraRose #
  • .@SandraRose I believe in free speech but that doesn't have anything to do with Chic-Fil-A LGBT employees being harassed on the job. 1/2 in reply to SandraRose #
  • lmfao!! “@meganamram: I don't get why they call it a "test" when Rorschach just painted my mom as a Jew-spider over and over again...” #
  • lol “@meganamram: Most arachnophobes end up secretly being spiders themselves” #
  • COMMUNITY: If you'd like to support the @POCZineProject tour, donate any amount you can via PayPal: Every penny helps! #
  • Lmao “@perlapell: The young girl volunteers are trying SO hard not to obviously gawk at the runners' buns. Shifty-eyed sweetness.” #
  • OH: "It's a thin line between nice and rabies" #
  • wow “@KateGardiner: Revenge Porn's Latest Frontier - On The Media” #
  • awww “@Geekosystem: Nintendo Files Trademark for Phrase “It’s On Like Donkey Kong” #Geekovault” #
  • A day that starts with brunch and friends and ends with sushi with more friends is a little gift I always treasure. #
