.@verizon I just spent 3 1/2 hours purchasing and trying to download my apps, texts, photos and videos, because your Lincoln Blvd. Location had no Wi-Fi and I had to slave Wi-Fi from the Security Guards Hot Spot on his Android. After nearly 4 hours and the store actually closed
...locking me in with 10 other store ‘hostages’, I decided to just leave, because restore process kept saying “2 hours” after 2 hours! You had 6 Employees trying to do the work of 12 Employees and many of them complained as they left after being on duty since 6:30am. They are
...not happy & are clearly overwhelmed, overworked and that bad energy trickles down to a customer paying nearly $1,800 a pop for a new iPhone 11 Pro. This is unacceptable and the experience feels like being held hostage buying a hoopty from a cheesy Used Car Salesman. #DoBetter

I finally took an improv class at @SecondCityTO. It was super fun b/c the instructor let me observe rather than interact so I was able to learn a bunch of really useful info. Then came the angry abusive desk clerk who unloaded on me saying I'd been "aggressive this whole time"...
@SecondCityTO When I gave my credit card to pay, he refused to give it back because "collateral" then threatened to call the police. I have no idea what he was on but it was terrible. I told him he could us inclusivity training because he was treading in lawsuit territory. His response was...
@SecondCityTO ask me what my disability was. I told him he couldn't ask that. He then asked the instructor if I'd been giving him trouble then proceeded to comment derisively on my stimming (I was trying to keep calm).

It was awful, y'all.

This is why we are at risk in the world.

I have a bone to pick with your comms folks, @MDAndersonNews

1. Show me any research, please, where a “plant-based” diet ALONE has reduced the risk of cancer by 50%.
And what do you mean by “plant-based diet”? Vegan is a common connotation. There is no agreement on what this phrase means.

And we have a complex digestive system because we eat flesh and plant.… Wikipedia on plant-based diet
Note that SOY is a dominant plant protein, mimics estrogen and is not recommended for estrogen-receptor-positive breast cancer patients.

Most of us in the US have not been fed soy since birth.

It makes no sense that a business can be called successful while its workers face the worst conditions of any State & DC in America.🤦🏽‍♂️

What is a business if it isn’t it’s workers?

Labor rights are human rights. To deny this is to exploit working families. That’s unacceptable.
I believe being #1 in biz *requires* we are #1 for workers

As VA SD-28 Senator—I’ll fight for working families to:
•⬆️ the living wage
•⬇️ taxes on working families
•strengthen Unions, &
•ensure billionaires pay their fair share of taxes

Hi-we are going to see lots of disinformation over the next 18 months. It is devised to get an emotional reaction, enrage is, drain our energy, drain our hope
Yes it’s easy to believe the worst since the GOP has taken us to new lows, but when you see something pitting one Dem candidate against another, claiming the powers that be are suppressing a certain candidates favor of another, be suspicious
Take a deep breath and fact check! @snopes @ushadrons are good places to start. Also follow good peopl on Twitter like @DemWrite @axidentaliberal who write fact based posts based on law and reality

Hey guys. Let's have a little huddle about #SundayMorning and Monday. Instead of speculating about the #MuellerReport ALL day, ya think you could dive into 3 URGENT things?
1. The heartbeat bill. Georgia. Mississippi. What it means for women when states close PP and don't cover birth control w/insurance. Maybe have experts on about Pakistan's abortion rates, or about ectopic pregnancies, and about life for women where religious extremists make laws.
2. Floods in the midwest. The suffering of people and livestock. What it means for those farmers. What it could mean for all of us that a third of our farmland was under water. Have experts on climate, economy, food production and supply, disaster relief.

[THREAD] Frankly, I’m sick of headlines like this from established news entities. DO YOUR JOBS, @Politico! Because this is not real journalism. Which “Democrats” does this headline refer to? How, pray tell, did this writer query the millions of (1)…
everyday people who are registered Democrats on their views of @AOC? What was the sample size and how was it selected? Or is this about Democratic leadership? Or elected officials? These artificial conflicts meant to create narratives and storylines rather than a holistic (2)
reporting of facts are a failure of modern journalism in a time when we need muckraking, not sensationalizing. The majority of Democrats either do not mind @AOC, agree with her, or are savvy enough to understand that political parties can espouse a broad range of viewpoints (3)

Dear @NBCMidnightTX, that’s not how Syriac works. #AskABiblicalScholar.
I also gotta wonder if anyone working on @NBCMidnightTX knows Greek. Theophilus does not mean father of darkness, it means lover of God. #DoBetter
I do like that Delilah is the mother of good witches.

@BetteMidler Your words tonight have wounded me deeply and what makes the wounds worst is that I do not think you fully comprehend their magnitude. Moreover, your attempt at an apology is not sufficient. I hope this excerpt from a piece I wrote will help you learn how to apologize.
@BetteMidler “a sincere apology simply needs to express our remorse that we did something that caused someone else pain. A sincere apology does not need to explain why we did it or why we think what we did is not as bad as something someone else did. /2
@BetteMidler A sincere apology certainly does not need to try to minimize the other person’s feelings; it does not need to redirect the discussion from that person’s feelings to something else. /3

This afternoon at #SPSA2018, I was on a #CWC panel about mentoring across genders. Below, I'll include my comments from the panel. In it, I speak candidly about my #gradschool #metoo moment. @SPSAwomen @SPSAwomen 1/n
In many ways, graduate school is designed to make students feel like impostors. It's a common experience, but it can be particularly damaging for members of groups that have traditionally lacked access to the higher ranks of our discipline. I’ll focus on women here. 2/n
For these folks, the feeling that they have “faked” or “charmed” their way into graduate school (or the #tenuretrack, etc.) can override objective evidence of their own diligence, intellect, and merit. 3/n

Love these but also hate the decontextualised way these are presented. #DoBetter journalists… via @guynamedgabe
It wasn't just the Soviet invasion. It was US meddling AND then support for the most regressive groups possible. And well before 1979
Those pics of women in skirts at Kabul University make me really angry, especially as it was US+ the 'West' that helped destroy that society
