Trend with Truth: The Brown Twitter Bird Movement
(Black Web 2.0) — Will the genius at Slate who created the brown Twitter bird, identify yourself? I side-eyed Farhad Manjoo’s post about how black people use Twitter like I side-eyed the scores of non-black folks who’ve asked me if they can touch my hair or if certain mythologies are true about African Americans or why all the black kids sit at a separate table in the lunchroom. ‘He’s just curious,’ I thought and kept it moving. But I couldn’t take my eyes off of the bird.
