Thread - As we expect another huge turnout for the anti-extradition bill protest in #HK, police and protesters are already on standby mode in Causeway Bay.
Once again, East Point Road becomes the center of the protest, where pro-democracy political parties and organizations already set up their booths and start engaging protesters and passersby through loudspeakers.
Lots of anger are aimed at the Hong Kong police, who have already deployed large amount of personnel along East Point Road.

Thread - An enlightening encounter that just happened to me in a coffee shop in #HK: I was grabbing a quick coffee break at the famous Arabica coffee shop in Kennedy Town, and while I was chatting away with an HK friend in Mandarin about the anti-extradition bill protest,...
a high school girl walked over and handed me a flyer about Sunday's protest. She asked me "Can I invite you to join tomorrow's protest?" I was a bit surprised as I certainly didn't expect such reaction to the conversation that I had with my friend.
She told me she's 16, and that when she heard my Taiwanese accent, she decided to approach me and invite me to join the protest. "If the bill passed, I think the freedoms and rights that are guaranteed under the One Country, Two Systems’ model will disappear," she told me."

#HK journalists have made a new series of dozens of short video testimonies (w English sub-titles) about their coverage of the 1989 pro-democracy protests in China 30 years ago to commemorate #June4. #六四30 youtube.com/channel/UCaSjK…

Sería muy interesante armar el maratón de #MCU alrededor de #Avengers, pero acomodando todas las escenas de todas las películas en una sola línea temporal. No incluyo las series por que sería sumamente largo y complicado.

Abro #hilo y me explico.
#AvengersElHilo
Actualmente hay dos formas (bueno hay un chingo) en que puedes ver todas las películas del Universo Cinematográfico de Marvel:
1.- En el orden cronológico de lanzamiento, es decir comenzar con #IronMan (2008), hasta llegar a #AvengersEndgame (2019).
2.- Viéndolas en orden cronológico de tiempo de los eventos, es decir, comenzar con lo que sucedió primero con #CaptainAmerica: The First Avenger y terminando con #AvengersEndgame. Esto sin contar los "flashbacks" con los que comienzan algunas como #GuardiansOfTheGalaxy

My thread yesterday re #TyphoonMangkhut went viral. Impossible to reply all so here is a general 👇

To all the kind concerned people: we are all safe. Back to work today.

To media: we r not defined by the disaster we encounter, but how we encounter it. Report that too pls. 1/
2/ to the #ClimateChange deniers who attacked me: keep sleep walking, geniuses.

To many who don’t know HK: the typhoon didn’t cut off our gas, electricity, internet. Everything worked fine. The first responders started 2 work during the typhoon. #HK is bouncing back already.
3/ To the people of #HK: i wasn’t born nor brought up here, but HK is home. There is no other place I can think of w such ability to bounce back w efficiency, resilience, & amazing work ethics. Our city has lagged behind in the last years but I’m profoundly proud & bullish #HK.
