1- It wasn't an 'ape' quote. It was a passage from #Shakespeare about arrogance/overconfidence.

2- It was the 'ape' quote that @MShapland quoted to #AlastairStewart's employers as evidence of racism, in the hopes of getting him sacked.
@MShapland Do you feel picked on Kate?

From what I've seen of his TL, AS regularly QT's his responses instead of replying under the line.

It's a common practice.
@MShapland and yet here you are, a "free speech fundamentalist" suggesting that some speech, entirely reasonable speech, is problematic.

@BrandiLynn4Ever @realDonaldTrump And if he'd Tweeted of DoJ FBI or DNC

Hang It All

Or meant in sense of Hang Out To Dry

But are you & Twitter seriously accusing ACTOR #JamesWoods of planning or inciting murder

It's an expression An idiom Of DISMISSAL *NOT* DEATH

Or is @Jack planning on banning #Shakespeare!
@BrandiLynn4Ever @realDonaldTrump @jack 2. But are you & Twitter seriously accusing ACTOR #JamesWoods of planning or inciting murder

Because he used AN EXPRESSION



Or are @Jack & #Twitter planning on banning all literary turns of phrase?!
@BrandiLynn4Ever @realDonaldTrump @jack 3. Is it any wonder distinguished educated literate actor #JamesWoods, once a student at MIT before he dropped out to pursue his acting career, refuses to bow down to ignorant prejudiced biased partisan no-platforming cancel-culture #Twitter #Censorship @Twitter

In #Shakespeare's #HenryV, we meet a new man, a different one, from the #PrinceHal of #HenryIV. This is a man's man now. A man possessed of intention and given to execution. He knows what he will do and he does it.
But there are those that only know HenryV as he was when he was Prince Hal. These include his dissolute companion of those earlier days, the knight Falstaff, and the Dauphin of France, the heir apparent to the French throne.
In Act I, Scene 2, the #Dauphin sends an #ambassador to #Englang, rejecting a claim made by #HenryV to certain territories in France (a claim he rested on French laws of inheritance).

The Dauphin's message illuminates his misreading of the man, the King, #HenryV, by the Dauphin.

Oh gawd, I decided to go straight from Much Ado to Richard II and I don't think I can do this 180 from Tennant as Benedick to Tennant as Richard, it's really throwing me 😂 #Shakespeare
Play: this is a super serious fuenral with two men throwing dire accusations at each other
Me: Benedick your fashion sense has gone up 1000%
Also there are no captions on this video, which is really making me sad. I had hoped it was a site-wide feature, but apparently not? It's especially needed since the player's aren't mic'd. I can read along but it's distracting.

We're starting the #Shakespeare live tweets with Much Ado About Nothing with David Tennant & Catherine Tate, because its been a long time since I saw it and I love it :D
Benedick: I'll never get married, all my friends are getting married and it's the WORST, I'm never going to do it, I totally don't like Beatrice at all
Also Benedick: What do you MEAN you think Hero is pretty have you SEEN Beatrice?
Benedick: no one will EVER see through this clever disguise!
Beatrice: time to break this man's spirit for fun :D

First line of famous poems continued by the @openAI GPT-2 example model from "Language Models are Unsupervised Multitask Learners" #gpt2poetry #GPT2
It little profits that an idle king,
who loves his throne for a moment to enjoy a good meal,
might, if he was not in the right position,
become the subject of a great banquet.
But as the royal household will do,
so too shall their subjects. #gpt2poetry #tennyson
That is no country for old men.
They are old men of our land, of old times.
Nowhere is this more true than in these two cases,
as it now goes: the United States of America,
the oldest people on this Earth, are all in a state of rebellion. #gpt2poetry #yeats

@Emmycollects #Slovenia gets a honorable mention, too.
@Emmycollects #Slovenia gets a honorable mention because of Richard Sulík (who valiantly stood his ground in the face of #Maas () and #Stegner (). My only quibble with his performance is that Sulík FORGOT to tell Stegner that

(THREAD) When my son was in Gr 10 he brough home, To Kill a Mockingbird. I was angry -my child, was reading a text of a past romanticized by some, even tho it was riddled with #racism. I wondered how many texts he would read that looked like him. But he had to read that- why?
I had asked many times for a reading list of books theyd have in their English class. I asked if the texts looked like them, reflected their experiences bc #IdentityMatters. I never could get an answer. Replies included, it was a #Classic but y'all know #Classics aint #Neutral
Of course, the response when we have these convos - "Y'all want to Censor...". Funny how "#freeSpeech" and "#censorship" always come up when issues of #equity are being discussed. That our children shouldn't be exposed to #racism and #trauma they live EVERY. SINGLE. DAY
