Late last year, I started doing a compilation of some of my best (mostly humorous) tweets that I made in 2019. For one reason or another, I never actually sent it. Possibly because Substack gives me an error message saying it’s “too long for email” and I’m not sure what will actually happen when I publish it, but seeing as I’m currently tweetsona non grata (six more days!), I thought I might as well dust it off and see if it will let me put it through.
It’s interesting reading this and being reminded of events from The Before Times, back before so much of the world ground to a halt and so much of the rest of it went completely off the rails. Don’t know if anyone else will find it interesting, but, eh. There’s definitely some gems in here.

Jennifer Laughran @literaticatListen, I love fashion, and I have a particular nostalgic soft spot for the aesthetic of Chanel, despite myself. But honestly... given that the woman was a Nazi collaborator and noted anti-Semite, can we please stop making *children’s picture books* about her? Enough already.
Adam Conover @adamconoverWhen you "tip" an Amazon driver, the driver doesn't receive that money as a bonus. Instead, Amazon uses it to pay them the base wage they were already promised. This is an unfair and misleading practice that doesn't match anyone's understanding of a tip. https://t.co/65BsGoTNyh

The Associated Press @APFacebook says its effort to provide users with local news is being hindered by a lack of original reporting.

Fr. Kevin M. Cusick, LCDR (Ret.)🇻🇦 @IntroiboAdAltarLadies, a priest I know was forced on Sunday to ask a woman at Mass to cover her shoulders. Please help the priest to protect the purity of the men at holy Mass by choosing to dress modestly. The alternative is awkward for all involved. Thank you.
jesuschristgetouttathisplace @SOYS55889817@ChaoticThey I find it amusing that the rules/definitions for sex/gender have become so numerous and convoluted that people who would be considered allies claw at each other over perceived slights for stuff that makes no sense in the first place. The “phobes” don’t even need to do anything!

The Chris Mosier @TheChrisMosierJOURNALISTS: when you're writing a piece about a transgender person, it is unnecessary to use their former name (if they changed their name). That's called "dead-naming." "Dead-naming" is when someone says or publishes the name a transperson used prior to transition. 1/13
