  • I keep coughing & my nose is starting to run. I'm hoping I just swallowed a bug in my sleep because I cannot be sick in SF. Not optional. #
  • some ppl feel intensely about screenshots lmao “@corvida: @dcap I know :P That was a little intense though lol” #
  • .@corvida @laurenthedark lmao no, the comment is hilarious - I was sharing it with you both. in reply to corvida #
  • I should probably try to go to sleep if I want to be conscious for @sfzinefest in a few hours ... #
  • lol "Jerk" ;) <3 “@SteveMartinToGo: Evidently, others are awake. But now, I'm asleep.” #
  • Me too :) “@SteveMartinToGo: Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one awake.” #
  • Truth “@freshalina: Good or bad, we attract what we R sometimes. So, if you're constantly complaining about your man not being shit. Well.” #
  • Damnit tweetbot, glitches making my twitter worlds collide #
  • I always end up watching "Friends" reruns when I travel for work. I fucking hate/love this show, just like hot cheetos. #guilt #
  • yeah it happens “@savasavasava: question: presenting the same work and concepts at different conferences - that’s ok?” #
  • "You wanna hear something weird?" Me: "Always" #
  • +1 “@vitawong: Gillian Anderson has only gotten better with age. Like the finest of wines.” #
  • don't tell a baby to stfu!!!! ;) “@vitawong: STFU, a baby otter. Fluffy perfection.” #
  • wtf lmfao cc @corvida @laurenthedark “@BtooCold87: IF A BITCH POST A SCREEN SHOT OF ANYTHING I TEXT OR DM IMMA POST A PIC OF HER DEAD BODY” #
  • Plus I consider myself nomadic anyway & no 1 place is my home. When the kids arrive I'll need 2 adjust some, but travel will always B a part #
  • 2/2 I actually won't B upset if I have to move to SF in 2013 for family reasons. It'll B ok. I have many friends here & resources, it's cool #
  • omg u guys, i think i'm in love with SF again ... the way that i was when i was 18 & wd drive hours each way 2 kick it & absorb culture 1/2 #
  • lmao “@savasavasava: hey Word? you’re an asshole.” #
  • +1 “@freshalina: Every now & then I walk sexy mad like Janet Jackson in Son of A Gun video to my refrigerator. But that's for me 2 know.” #
  • Nom (@ Acme Burgerhaus w/ 2 others) #
  • .@shananaomi LMAO I had to urban dictionary that. Thanks! You're a bamf teeeew! Enjoy the long weekend too <3 in reply to shananaomi #
  • lol I feel her RT @yayponies "do we have any friends who want to make decisions?" #shitmywifesays #dinnerproblems #
  • In NYC I work @ home+occasionally go 2 the studio. For this SF work trip, I've been supervising 12-18 ppl @ a time. Mantra: "be like water" #
  • My friend last night :"Your energy is very intense." She meant it as a compliment & I took it that way. I am who I am. I'm not passive. #
  • .@anniecolbert I really like your website. Lots of personality :) in reply to anniecolbert #
  • Who's dumb idea was it again in the 90s 2 force kids 2 learn cursive but not computer science? Society is paying for that now. #
  • lmfao “@damnsheDIDthat: the voice my ex uses in his head to read my tweets as he stalks my timeline is probably hilarious.” #
  • Liberal white folks who make fun of #RNC attendees but don't have any real POC friends & are clueless about local POC issues are funny. #
  • +1 “@DearWhitePeople: @Upworthy If anyone is playing @baratunde's #NegroSpotting as a drinking game - they are assuredly okay to drive.” #
  • lmao #rnc “@JasonBerlin: Why would the oceans rise? That’s RIDICULOUS, laughed the people who believe the Red Sea parted.” #
  • #truth #RNC “@billmaher: Who can type fast enough to keep up with all the lies?” #
  • #nowplaying the best thing i've heard on soundcloud in a long time #
  • It has been wonderful to see a bay area friend every day since I've been in NYC. Friday night I'll be at @maxrnr HQ w/ my friend Mariam <3 #
  • .@pennymisandry hiiiiiii! <3 you found me on Twitter! yay! Nice to "see" you :) in reply to pennymisandry #
  • Without a Teleprompter and a script, @mittromney has no mind of his own. That awkward lull earlier was proof. #RNC #2012GOP #Current2012 #
  • Uh @mittromney doesn't care about the very poor so why is he talking about poverty? #
  • lmfao “@moorehn: What is that sucking/clicking sound Mitt keeps making? Get him a glass of water or an electrical engineer.” #
  • If yr not watching @current right now & enjoying the juxtaposition of @mittromney & our curated #InvisibleObama tweets ... go look y'all! #
  • Invisible Obama and Mexican Mitt go to White Castle #GOP2012movies #GOP2012 #current2012 #
  • .@whoschriskelly Thanks for watching! #Current2012 in reply to whoschriskelly #
  • lol I need to do that too “@shananaomi: @dcap i have a whole set of belts i mostly just wear over dresses on days i need an IFB!” #
  • Homie Steven in IT at @Current just lent me his belt since dresses aren't walkie-friendly #Current2012 #femmeproblems #
  • Last @twitter UX thought: every platform=what U make it. If U see @twitter as some box 2 check off on a task list, I feel bad 4 U. Good luck #
  • 2/2 Just "playing" on Twitter has led me 2 more things that tangibly improved my life than some superficial "engagement" bullshit checklist. #
  • Gamers & gamification experts know this: basic, unstructured PLAY and EXPLORATION are essential to thriving in this world. Kids+adults! 1/2 #
  • When ppl R like "I don't have time 2 use @twitter just to play around" I'm like "Do U have time to watch commercials? Bcuz then U have time" #
  • When ppl R like "I only use @twitter for my job" I'm like "your job shouldn't trust U to use it then." Bcuz U don't get the culture that way #
  • 3/3 I've found clients, IRL friends+more by just taking time 2 be curious/not thinking about metrics. ex: 4am casual convo led to a gig once #
  • 2/3 When you take the time to actually get to know ppl, and explore your natural basic curiosity, amazing things can happen through @twitter #
  • 1/2 What some ppl don't understand is that some of the most favorable outcomes don't manifest through by the book "pro" behavior on @Twitter #
  • .@suzy_ex what's unfortunate=some ppl only like the choir. if they see something in their feed that challenges them, they unfollow. sad. #
  • The @twitter medium is conducive to micro-learning. 1/2 RT @suzy_ex @dcap I love it. If people can't handle what I have 2 say, then bye h8rz #
  • Me too. Oh well! Some ppl like their bubble. RT @lynneluvah @dcap It happens to me when I discuss racial issues. Unfollow. Unfollow. #
  • I forgot that! haha! So long ago right <3 yr welcome RT @jambajim @dcap U were the one 2 introduce me to @Twitter! I can't thank U enough! #
  • 3/3 @jenleereeves Ppl can use Twitter however they want, of course. But if you only use it to please your boss/teacher, you are missing out. in reply to jenleereeves #
  • 2/3 @jenleereeves U can tell when a person is new to @twitter & joined due to a class or job requirement. They don't get the culture. in reply to jenleereeves #
  • Nope, not what I meant :) 1/2 RT @jenleereeves @dcap are you seeing schools requiring students to use twitter just to gain followers? in reply to jenleereeves #
  • I suspect ppl get uncomfortable when Internet ppl force them 2 think beyond marketing/biz ish RT @lynneluvah @dcap That happens to you too? #
  • I smile when people unfollow after I say something real on Twitter. It's a great housekeeping strategy. Bye, lames! #
  • #nowplaying Total - Kissing You xo #
  • I'm not my @klout score of 69. I am not a pundit. I am a person, Daniela. If you want to really know me, all you have to do is reach out. #
  • .@klout is fun but it doesn't capture t true value i get out of twitter or what i bring in2 the lives of people who find me through twitter. #
  • I feel bad for @twitter newbies who come here from media studies/journo school & their core usage is some metrics/biz driven exercise. #
  • .@twitter is a valuable marketing/engagement tool & a part of my job but the interpersonal, life-affirming aspects R what brings me joy. #
  • In early days of @twitter, ppl weren't here 2 sell U on something. U came becuz U wr curious. U shared yr life - part I still love the most #
  • I appreciate what my followers on @twitter share and I hope you get something out of my feed too. Otherwise, what's the point? #
  • I care more about authentic relationships via @twitter than my follower count. Employment+Friendships+Love; thru Twitter since '06. #
  • My jewish step grandfather "Grampy" is a great man. He is 90+ yrs old, an artist & uses his kindle everyday. I want him to live forever :*(. #
  • Thank you for your kind words :) “@peoplegogy: @dcap good for you” #
  • <3 I shriek every time I see you on #Current2012 on our monitors in SF “@shananaomi: @dcap good for you on all counts” #
  • I'm on a kick where I document the things I'm proud of, that make me feel good. It works 4 me. I have a lot to be proud of, I've discovered. #
  • 2day I edited a video 4 client from my hotel bed, replied 2 @POCZineProject emails, went 2 work+supervised 18 ppl, then dinner w pals. #boss #
  • Lol “@emilybell: Reddit is a blow 4 RNC though. maybe Paul Ryan can quickly mod on Minecraft & pull back 13-yr old socially awkward vote” #
  • lmfao “@natashavc: Give me any chance to slut shame Marilyn Monroe and I'll take it.” #
  • Sad “@HuffPostLive: The number of PhDs on welfare more than tripled between 2007 and 2010 #education #HuffPostLive” #
  • Feeling blessed that @poczineproject tour planning=progressing in fabulous+ productive manner. This helps me deal w a lot of unrelated BS <3 #
  • .@SoyChaiLatte Def! Feel free to message/add me: daniela AT dcapmedia DOT com, I'll be in touch :) in reply to SoyChaiLatte #
  • likes the juxtaposition of listening 2 Bikini Kill : Suck My Left One while answering emails in my biz/grown up voice. #
  • RT @POCZineProject CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: 'We Got this,' a #zine 2 share sex worker resources/strategies for protection #
  • .@lilysea Considering how many networks air tweets, I think @twitter shd update their TOS 2 include this reality. But no one reads those :/ in reply to lilysea #
  • #nowplaying Talking Heads - "This Must Be The Place" Soundtrack for a nomadic life ... <3 #
  • Would you be upset if a network used your tweets w/o that? What would you do? RT @lilysea @dcap I think they should ask permission first. #
  • So guys, you probably know this already, but several networks are using your RNC & DNC tweets on air. Do you care? I'm curious. #
  • .@SoyChaiLatte I love your writing. I regret never asking you to meets IRL in NYC. I'm frequently in LA so, safe travels! xo in reply to SoyChaiLatte #
  • Those Education Connection TV commercials are so insulting to millennials. #
  • .@strategiclee Cool! Will do :) in reply to strategiclee #
  • wow “@MediaReDEF: NYPD Officer Takes to Reddit, Offers Disturbing Answers to Questions About Cops and Their Guns” #
  • .@strategiclee I sleep on the weekends. Hey! Are you in SF? I'm out here til 9/7 let's meet up if so! in reply to strategiclee #
  • I daresay that I probably love #Squidbillies more than ATHF. It's really hard to choose but #Squidbillies does more topical stuff. #
  • me too! “@TGOD_cuh: I like how #Squidbillies intro song is "different genre" every episode now..” #
  • lmfao!! “@StickMagik: The old lady talking for Alabama's delegates sounds just like the grandma from #squidbillies #RNC #p2 #hardball” #
  • I cannot express how much I appreciate the genius behind #Squidbillies in 140c. It's fucking brilliant satire & totally underrated. #
  • .@santagati #Squidbillies is on right now!!! #adultswim in reply to santagati #
  • ZOMG you love #Squidbillies too??? <3 No one will watch it with me #lames #philistines “@santagati: @dcap That's my show!” #
  • Disclosure: there are several people I follow just because they once tweeted about Squidbillies. #adultswim #
  • Robot Chicken has a Neverending Story parody. It was AWESOME. I am SO happy I just saw this. #hoteltv #adultswim #
  • I like the 8mm app, fun for video “@SnoopDogg: Lemme. know. what apps ur usin n what social networks?? Whats craccin?” #
  • So guys, you probably know this already, but several networks are using your RNC & DNC tweets on air. Do you care? I'm curious. #
  • so important, right? impacts work quality “@peoplegogy: @dcap so true. I fed my crew well during my time in film school” #
  • The people at Alhamra in SF are hilarious. No utensils or napkins in a delivery of Indian food? Really? cc @grubhub #
  • I mean, if you have any doubts about how important food is to morale, look at how @google hooks up their employees. Food for days. Smart. #
  • The 1st thing I will check w my AD each day on my first feature that I direct= state of/quality of crafty. For real. Food morale is critical #
  • 2/2 I first learned that on the set of Mira Nair's film The Namesake, where I watched several crew members have a meltdown re: crappy crafty #
  • Something I learn from working in film production that has served me well: always make sure yr team is fed, hydrated & gets potty breaks 1/2 #
  • I'm committed to seeing one bay area friend per day while I'm out here. So far, so good. Had breakfast today with an awesome homie. #
  • I'm getting Indian food from @grubhub right now because I'm a modern woman who likes naan so very much. #
  • Check it: + drop by from 4pm - 8pm ET this week, that's when it's "off the chain." My slang goes retro when I'm tired. #
  • ^_^ TY, ditto RT @angelamedia @dcap you too--Great job handling a big section of the bucket brigade! #
  • Great day guys! @shananaomi @VictorBalta @laurelmargaret @monicaleas @angelamedia @joelhyatt #Current2012 Sorry 2 those I left off, tired:) #
  • .@mollyknefel I am working right now at @current but can email you info later tonight :) in reply to mollyknefel #
  • "Strong hands" + "I love you women" = need a YouTube mashup please #Current2012 #RNC2012 #
  • .@mollyknefel Pls cover harassment on planes as well - men who think 10k feet = rules of personal space out the window. #RadioDispatch #
  • LOL “@CapitolAlert: CA reputation at RNC: 'scary,' 'hyper environmental,' great wine'” #
  • Great profile “@JamesEstrin: “Eventually everyone’s going to be Puerto Rican.” Photos by Adal Maldonado #Boricua € #
  • 2/2 Fashion is great. But judging someone's intelligence+potential based on hair+clothes+tattoos+piercings= really dumb. It's 2012 y'all. #
  • There's that adage: "dress for the job you want to have." That was never relevant for me bcuz I will dress however I want, at all times 1/2 #
  • It's so funny, the difference btwn how ppl treat me when I pass as normative vs non-normative in hair & style. I enjoy confusing sheeple. #
  • 2/2 This guy was grilling me & wouldn't believe my work history! Bcuz of my hair! LOL I guess if I was in a boring suit he wd have believed. #
  • I met this guy in the liquor store earlier this evening & based on my appearance he assumed I was some sort of anarchist. I said thanks! 1/2 #
  • Don't judge a book by its cover, y'all. A suit & buzzwords doesn't make someone legit. And non-normative hair/clothes doesn't = loser/dumb. #
  • Jesus take the wheel “@MotherJones Until 1998, Mississippi said it wasn't rape if victim was "impure." #notjoking” #
  • Very few Interwebz things make me smile more than Instagram pics by thrilled #gay #queer guys meeting @NICKIMINAJ IRL <3 #
  • .@savasavasava hey! let's meet up when I'm back in NYC. I want to meet you IRL. email me if yr down: daniela AT dcapmedia DOT com in reply to savasavasava #
  • Mmm yeah I love 30 Rock but Puerto Ricans do not have quinceaneras in Prospect Park while dancing the macarena. #wtf #whowrotethisepisode #
  • It's interesting to me how many people have jobs because of the existence of Twitter, including data journalists. #
  • .@zephoria adults have a lot to learn from teens about community engagement & platform-specific vernacular. in reply to zephoria #
  • .@corvida don't eat up all the fruit snacks while I'm in Cali yo. I see you. #fruitsnackgang in reply to corvida #
  • oh! thank you. never had a hotel wish me a good time before :) thanks “@WestinStFr: @dcap Safe travels & enjoy your time in San Francisco!” #
  • I feel like @tempesttbledsoe should have way more than 194 followers. She's like ... a cultural icon for my generation. #cosbyshowroyalty #
  • Walking to @current HQ. Beautiful day in SF #
  • True “@jennydeluxe: "Online/Offline is just another over simplistic binary. Much like gender/sex, it's a fluid spectrum." - @caradefabio” #
  • cc @laurenthedark “@dcconcierge: How is Twitter's business model like the food truck industry? Read here” #
  • yay“@JamesEstrin: Photos of Gay Bears. You know what I mean. "“It’s not perfect body, gym-toned, and no facial hair,”” #
  • JFK bound. Going to join team @current in SF for a few weeks. #
  • I don't think I will b able 2 sleep on this boltbus, knowing everyone's evacs R sloshing around next 2 me. #budgettravelblues #
  • Poop chair on BoltBus: the seat right by the toilet. aka the doodoo seat. aka ew #
  • I think if u have 2 sit in the poop chair on BoltBus yr chair outlet shd work. Dying phone AND hearing every1's potty biznes=not the biznes #
