2020 in the business of sport? Consider this A to Z thread of things to keep an eye on as your cheat sheet for a new year. #sportsbiz
A - ATP Cup: Men’s #tennis has yet another team event joining its cluttered calendar to sit alongside the Davis Cup and Laver Cup, as the politics of the sport play out in public. The ATP’s new management have lots to do - hopefully it includes developing a mixed team tournament.
B - Budapest: Quietly and confidently emerging as Europe’s latest major events host, with a trio of @EURO2020 games, the expanded @FedCup finals in April and the start of May’s @giroditalia making this a big year. An Olympic host in the 2030s?

Children's books are magically informative ! @Scholastic's #HorribleHistorySeries carries my strong recommendation, age no bar. For sheer joy of learning new facts, I start #ThreadHorribleHistory. Kindly expect Stone age, Greeks, Romans, WW history.

Joy, not politics please ? 🙏
This tweet will lead to different verticals. Each vertical will be about a different culture/event that a normal #Indian doesn't know much about. Sole intention is to spread knowledge. 🙏

Education is the greatest leveller.

I'm at the #ICCA semi-finals at UCLA cause my little cousin is in a college acapella group. If you don't know what the ICCAs are, think Pitch Perfect but without the comedy writing of @KayKayCannon. I've just been told this might last 3.5hrs. To survive, I'm going to live-tweet.
Thank you for joining me at this time. At the moment, I can tell you my uncle has already failed at setting up the tripod for his phone on time and is stressed that he's going to miss the first group...which my cousin/his son is NOT a part of.
We've been informed that because every group only gets a HARD 12mins, we can only do a quick "enthusiastic" clap in between songs, then one long "enthusiastic" clap at the end of each set. They made us practice this.

So the mainstream media has pushed North Korean propaganda including coverage of the head of Nork propaganda. What does that say about who controls the “narrative” (propaganda) of MSM. It’s the same people that really control North Korea.
MSM switches in waves of propaganda between the sky is falling to NK fawning. Hoping the public will not put together the totality of the way NK is used to yank the chain of the masses for increased military/surveillance budgets (always a good rocket launch right before).
We hear contradictory info all the time... NK is 10 years from nuke... NK already has it. Can’t reach US. Already can.

This is what propaganda looks like... changing narratives to suit the news of the day. Trump comes in and suddenly Rocket Man is shooting rockets frequently.

Johnny and Tara have brought the sparkle.
Okay, jazzy Wonderwall amuses me (please don’t fall again, kid. It’s okay. Get your nerves out here before the singles, but I hope you haven’t hurt yourself.) #Olympics
