1/ I read today’s @NYTimes piece on #Opportunity Zones. A few thoughts: nytimes.com/2019/08/31/bus…
2/First reaction: it's impossible to say that Opportunity Zones have been a “Bonanza” for anyone. We are in *such* early days. Opportunity Zone funds will not have any returns for ten years, minimum (this was intentional, it’s patient capital!)
3/ The narrative that a “wave of developments” is happening is not yet true. Opportunity Zone funds across the country have raised less than 10% of their goals. It is a new market and most people are very cautious.

I have reached a whole new level of #PISSEDOFF.

I didnt think such a #dark and #scary state, or level, could be reached. It may top 12-14-17's causation. It's. That. Bad. So, I've prepared a statement...

Dear @FBI,
I must implore you ask your colleauges in @FBITampa to help research this new level of #PISSEDOFFNESS. As locals, they may offer a special indepth knowledge of this new level I have reached. This is not fair & law enforcement must #investigate. No one deserves this.
This is my #apogee of #Pissedoffness.
If #motherfuckers & #tears werent a noticable level.
If #HUSH or #INTIMIDATION tactics being deployed didnt strike a chord.
If #EVIDENCE, PROOF, or 30k Bonds didnt #WOW YOU.
If posting mom with no shred of investigatable value wasnt enough...

@PascoSheriff I also here they're rather good with subpoena handeling and good at calling in cold cases. 12-14-17 @fbi @fbitampa @realDonaldTrump @GovRonDeSantis
@PascoSheriff @FBI @FBITampa @realDonaldTrump @GovRonDeSantis Oh, my bad, I was supposed to be #intimidated into being #hushedup. Gosh. Forgot about that, despite CLEAR INSTRUCTION FROM PETERGORN AND MARKPORRELLO. #ThisisPasco #LivePd.

Hey QB!
READ THIS CAREFULLY.

Nunes Announces New Clinton Evidence, Burns Entire Swamp To The Ground supportfortrump.com/nunes-announce…
I CAN PROVE IT.
Patterns and tactics.
Case handeling. Roadblocks. Witness interviews and authentication. These same patterns and tactics remind of something from way back too. Everything is a complete mirror. Including pinning hacks and cover ups.

1/ Years ago a friend of mine, Matthew Trueman, roughed out a story about Spirit and Opportunity trying to find each other before their batteries run out. He gave me his permission to post it. It's extraordinary #Opportunity #ThanksOppy
2/ Birth. Takeoff. Journey. #Opportunity #ThanksOppy
3/ Arrival. Landing. Separation. #Opportunity #ThanksOppy

I can’t believe I’m crying over a small, exhausted robot that metaphorically breathed its last about eight months ago being declared dead. No, scratch that, I absolutely can. #Opportunity
Spirit and Opportunity, the @MarsRovers of our hearts, were with me since they launched in 2003. They kickstarted my fascination with space, and by proxy with science and engineering.
When I was 11 or 12 I would spend hours poring over sheets of graph paper or Google SketchUp drawings where I carefully designed and rendered my own Mars rover. I even built a mock-up robotic arm out of scrap wood, tin flashing, and wingnuts.

Sad news. Mars rover #Opportunity is probably done. Sometime tonight, a team @NASAJPL will make their final attempt to contact #Oppy. If they can't, they'll likely call the mission. Here's what happened... 1/
She was bouncing along, doing well, until a massive dust storm engulfed all of Mars in June 2018, knocking out communications with the team on earth. They haven’t heard from her since. It’s unclear exactly what happened... 2/
The last message they received was basically, “My battery is low and it’s getting dark.” They hoped that the windy season would clear dust off the solar panels (if that was the problem). Since then they've been pinging her again and again, every way they knew… 3/

Hello, I am Edna Matta. I was born in #Ibague, known as #Colombia’s #CityofMusic. A beautiful place near snow-covered volcanos (Ruiz, Santa Isabel and Tolima), large expanses of paramo forest, lakes and streams where a diverse array of animal and plant species coexist
My story starts with #powerful, #strong #women in my #family. I was the third of 4 children and my mom #firstMentor had to raise us practically alone, since my father had to work in a different city, 20h away by car
My mom is a very #strong #woman that taught me #values, to #workhard and to be #self-sufficient #StrongWomen #StrongFamily

1/ Tweetstorm a comin' cuz @IvyBGrey really likes it when I "have a conversation with an article." First of all, super 💯 helpful and useful breakdown of varying #innovation approaches, so everyone trying to do all the innovation things, please read the article, like now thanks.
2/ Is "incremental" a dirty word? No. But to most people it #feels less exciting & flashy than "#disruptive." Yes, I said #feels. Bc most ppl probably will not read Ivy's excellent article or this tweetstorm bc they're not on Twitter. To them all this sounds/#feels like jargon.
2 / Exhibit A / From @DCaseyF who is now 5.7% as famous as @RealCarrotTop, who is in turn is now only 0.8% as Twitter famous as @EmrgencyKittens: geeklawblog.com/2016/09/im-wor…

I've been part of the Twitter resistance for a year now. I'm going to share some thoughts about why & how I resist.

Some people may not like some things I say here. I’m sorry for that, but they need to be said. 1 #WhyIResist #HowIResist #RebelScum #TheResistance
Some things in the first year were fun: meeting like-minded people, the #scifi characters, learning how to take effective action. Celebrating #victories like beating the #ACA repeal bills.

A lot of it wasn't fun - the threats of nuclear war, the daily stress of bad news. 2
Follow parties were fun, and a good way to promote a message and raise awareness, connect with other resistors and grow our followings. They had themes and served a purpose and there was about about one a month.  3 #PartyWithAPurpose #trending #amplify #effective
