🌤 #TampaBay is a beautiful and diverse ecosystem and we need to take better care of it. Yesterday, I saw two 🐬chasing 🐟 for dinner while pelicans crashed around them. Blue 🦀 were scurrying in the water. Stingrays stealthily skimmed the bay bottom. 1/5
We have worked diligently for decades to clean up the 🌊water quality of Tampa Bay, but the massive dump of acidic wastewater from the neglected #PineyPoint phosphogypsum stack feels like a slap in the face. This happened before. Nobody learned from it. 2/5
We must learn the lesson now and act. We need new solutions to protect our bay and waterways, & a true commitment to stick with it. We need innovative ideas for the meaningful use of gypsum instead of building massive mounds w giant wastewater ponds that leak and overflow. 3/5

Football is an idol in modern America. The #NFL’s massive 💰💰💰has corrupted our culture. I knew many young men who had no life plan other than going pro. They ALL had their bodies ruined in the process. I shouldn’t be able to walk due to a football injury.
We sacrifice our athletes to idols, cutting them into whatever shape wins games. The NFL doesn’t care about healthy bodies. The game destroys bodies. Your favorite athlete will probably retire with a permanent injury. No one cares bc 💰💎✈️🏆
I live in Tampa & I don’t want the #SuperBowl here. Get it out of here. Gladiator games likely to result in human trafficking. A circus of exploitation. But it brings in lots of money.

@BillHuberSI @edjsports 1 of 2. @edjsports model's likely mis-specified; in any case subjectively-built. @CoachMLaFleur has defensible rationale: try to win the game outright in regulation. Under either scenario he was going to have to [1] score a TD; & [2] Stop @TomBrady. @BillEnright/@robinlundberg
@BillHuberSI @edjsports @CoachMLaFleur @TomBrady @BillEnright @robinlundberg Part 2 of 3. Consider: @packers either
a. Score TD PLUS 2-Pt conversion PLUS prevent @Buccaneers from driving for FG, PLUS then win in OT; or
b. Kick FG, PLUS force #TampaBay to punt PLUS @AaronRodgers12 drives for winning TD in final 100 seconds w/ 1-2 Time-outs. #GoPackGo #NFL
@BillHuberSI @edjsports @CoachMLaFleur @TomBrady @BillEnright @robinlundberg Part 3 of 3: One can posit a probabilistic model using real data on @packers & comparables odds of success 4 each step & show it was better to kick FG & then demand the defense stop #Brady. The irony is IF @AaronRodgers12 runs on 3rd down they go for it on 4th & 2. @BillHuberSI

TW: rape and racism/antiblackness
This is my story of how Tong Lee, owner of The Chewy Boba Co. USF, continuously verbally assaulted me back in 2013 - a thread.
I saw Mel Gibson was trending and a tweet triggered tf out of me.
Tong Lee from The Chewy Boba Company USF in Tampa, Florida was violently verbally abusive to me. He once got angry because I was late coming out of work and he was supposed to drive me home. (1)
On the car ride home, he told me next time I was late, he would make me walk home and that he hoped I would "get gangraped by a group of black dudes." He also yelled at me for making one of *his* guests a sandwich because the kid said he was hungry and I was just that kind of (2)

“I’m really proud of this event. This is all about community. We put this together in less than a week. To me, that’s pretty special,” says Jake geffon, a 19yo protest organizer. @TB_Times
The march is about to take off. It’s going to head south on 4th St and stop at the Central Ave intersection @TB_Times
On the move for the St. Pete night protest. A woman in front of me just turned to her friend and said, “This is the most people I’ve ever seen.” Definitely the most I’ve seen at a march. @TB_Times
