Serious question:

How do you know if a tornado is nearby?

Asking for myself. This would be overnight tonight if it happens.

Is there a specific sound? Sky color? What?

THREAD: We're keeping track of the Democrats and progressives who have filed to be on the ballot for the 2020 primary! Here's our list so far ⬇️

#txlege #txsen #2020Election…
2/ TX has been trending Democratic for years, and it’s because of the work of organizers & advocates. Because of them, 2020 is a possible tipping point!

We can turn TX blue, but it won’t happen without even more work from even more progressives. #txlege #txsen #2020Election
3/ Up first, those who have filed for U.S. Congress:

Hey @United thanks for sending me, my 1 and 2 year olds, and my husband on a 49 hour clustermess of travel trying to get back home to Sydney from the US without our stroller or our portable cribs. We were told repeatedly to get our bags in Houston. #UnitedAirlines #UA101
We checked the stroller so we could make what had become a tight connection (spoiler: we did not make it). Thanks to @United we got to spend the night in Houston because of a delay on the incoming aircraft which made us miss our flight to Sydney. #UnitedAirlines #UA101
We got in at 11pm (very late in toddler time) and went to baggage claim, only to learn that our bags were in limbo and that luggage services wouldn't be able to find them for hours. That left us without a stroller or portable cribs @United #UnitedAirlines #UA101

Throughout @realDonaldTrump's 2016 campaign, the max crowd he attracted was less than 10000 people. Just ONE event by a foreigner, Sri @narendramodi in #Houston brought 50000 Indians in one stadium.

Think about it.
These 50000 folks didn't drop out of the sky. Why did they come there? Sure, for @narendramodi. But what brought them there is that subconscious Sanatana gene which identifies with him. THIS is why we are the ONLY civilization.
It's not an accident that @realDonaldTrump got perhaps the ONLY standing ovation in his life when he merely verbalized "Islamic terrorism" from a long suffering people who contributed so much to the US, parched to hear the words.

In #Pakistan, Govt & pundits shouldn't make too much of #Trump appearance at #HowdyModi. It's a circus for #Indian PM, endorsing @realDonaldTrump for a 2nd term while the pro-#India lobby in DC works with anti-#Trump base, & hoping to keep him away from #Kashmir if possible @AQpk
PM #Modi has this in mind while trying to appease #Trump at #HowdyModi: #American restrictions on I.T. visa abuse by #Indian immigrants (aka 'Skilled Immig'), ending #India oil imports from #Iran, jeopardizing #Indian interests in #Afghanistan, & Trump rehabilitating #Pakistan
#Trump turning the screws on #India on trade tariffs, forcing end to oil import from #Iran & forcing India to buy from #USA/#KSA/#GCC, talking to #Pakistan on #Afghanistan, & restricting immigration from India, are things that worry #NewDelhi deeply. Watching #ImranKhan in....

THREAD/ Yesterday, two years ago.

Me and five online friends watched as Twitter users pleaded for flood rescue during #Harvey. The 911 system went down. Fed, state and city officials told people to use 911, and not to use Twitter.
We saw as anxiety turned to fear, then terror.

We saw volunteers wasting critical time boating to homes based on outdated posts.

We decided to focus on supporting fed agencies by giving them actionable, accurate, timely data for search and rescue.
First up was the Google spreadsheet.

Then we coined the term #HarveySOS, and asked friends to go out and tag distress calls using that hashtag.

Another team grabbed those tagged tweets and entered them using consistent formatting.

I know many #twitterstorians, including @KevinMKruse and @DavidAstinWalsh, have been commenting on today’s #SCOTUS decision on gerrymandering.

I’d like to spend a minute detailing how this affects someone living in a deeply gerrymandered district.
My wife grew up in Kingwood, an overwhelmingly white suburb that the city of Houston annexed in 1996. From our apartment just south of downtown #Houston, it takes roughly 45 minutes, heading northeast, to get to her childhood home.
When Houston annexed Kingwood, suburban residents protested. One local business owner said, ''Our biggest frustration was that we didn't have a voice. We figured if we don't have a voice now, how are we going to have one later? That scared the heck out of us."

Just in time for lunch... Happy Friday, #twitterverse! One more lesson before school lets out for summer: James Beard-nominated chef Ronnie Killen (@ze1chef) from @killensbbq has the *most necessary* tips for the perfect brisket. Stay tuned… #Houston
TIP #1 from @ze1chef: “Source good product, don’t mess it up.” Simply, great barbecue begins with sourcing great cuts of meat. Worry less about marbling and instead seek out meat with a light pink hue, which means the cattle ate quality feed, which will yield a tastier result.
TIP #2 from @ze1chef: A thick fat cap will provide big flavor, but pros know to trim brisket a bit to create a streamlined, aerodynamic shape. This ensures that smoke will waft evenly over the meat and no parts become overly smoky. #BBQ

A #Trump-hating, Democrat/Socialist judge in #Houston, who describes himself as an "activist", didn't know the law, so he unwittingly resigned himself from his judgeship.

Hey #Texas, you better pay attention and DO NOT elect this guy to Texas Supreme Court!
Here is this judges website:
Here's some of his anti-Trump rhetoric. This coming from an "impartial" judge.

Leticia: @airallianceHOU has their own purple air monitors for #ITCDisaster. @HarvardU also has monitors. #ITCfire is why we cannot afford rollbacks. Study by @EnvironmentTex show companies like ITC don't incur problems from air quality violations. EPA & TCEQ not protecting us
.@HighTechAztec @SierraClub: Experiencing symptoms of exposure and high levels of distress.

I care because I live here, too. My mom lives in Deer Park. Friends who are pregnant & vulnerable. Concerned about cumulative impact. Scares me

🏆In the astonishingly corrupt world of politics in Washington today, it is important to acknowledge people that do the right thing no matter the consequences. I think we should acknowledge the 58 members of the 115th Congress who did the right thing.

🥇These members of the 115th Congress didn’t think about the political ramifications, their reputations or the timing; they just voted honorably not to table the measure to impeach a prez who is clearly not abiding by the law or representing our country the way it deserves to be.
🏆Most of these members of the 115th Congress are still in Congress, but some are Governors or in new positions. One member, Louise Slaughter D-NY, sadly died in 2018. More on her later.

Jackson Lee was referred on ethics violations related to a trip to Azerbaijan shortly before a huge new pipeline was inked to funnel #Russian oil into Europe. Let’s see what fun things she did in that trip!…
To begin with, her congressional trip abroad was pulled together by One look at their site shows that they were created by Israeli, Ami Dar to create “political interaction among Americans & citizens of other countries.”

This notorious repost from a Pitt or Volunteers fan is amazing [thread]:
There's a change in the air. The Butch funk is gone. The Pruitt era begins. For better or worse, we have a new reason to be hopeful and believe that Tennessee will soon again be matching on-field results
with our blue blood traditions. Pruitt's defense dominated last night, and hes on the verge of securing a Top15 class in a transition year. Vols have a lot to be excited for in 2018, which we start off against the University of #WestVirginia.
A team we've never met head to head on the gridiron; and with the game brings encounters with a fanbase we've never experienced. The University of W. Virginia #Mountaineers and their cocaine fiend of a coach #Dana #Holgorsen.
