My first ever natl. news story, @TechCrunch, features Annette Rivero: a super hard-working Uber/Lyft driver helping lead a mass protest movement of drivers prepared to "disrupt" across CA next week, fighting for better working conditions. https://twitter.com/TechCrunch/status/1164523587077910528
Incredible reporting on a horrifying story. @nytimes reporters triangulated perpetrators behind the bombings of 4 Syrian hospitals and say they found found evidence to blame one culprit: Russia. https://nyti.ms/2IM8M21
Going to bed like this, and feeling pretty decent about it.
Oh, and btw LFG Yankees :)
You are so welcome, @xeni! You're a hero and your leadership on these issues has set an inspiring example for women and men alike. https://twitter.com/xeni/status/1183233818129338368
If Summers or his friends aren't happy about people like me maligning his character, he can apologize harder and make amends better. Otherwise, shut up.
Ugh. If anyone still defends Larry Summers' comments on women when he was @Harvard President (they were always terrible): see. exhibit. A. Those ideas, in the Jeffrey Epstein context? Misogyny was at the tip top of American academia, this century. https://twitter.com/ChuckRossDC/status/1183087585234690049
Had daily access to equivalent of literal army of philanthropy experts helping him "do the most good." Decided to chill creepily w/serial child rapist, in the name of "charity."
SO tired of billionaire humanism. It's not good for democracy or humanity. https://twitter.com/xeni/status/1183100392785104897
We identified at least six meetings between Epstein and Gates or @gatesfoundation employees. Gates visited Epstein’s NY mansion on multiple occasions, at least once staying late into the night.
All of the Gates meetings took place *after* Epstein was convicted of sex crimes.
Bill Gates. I am to believe one of the world’s smartest richest men didn’t know what Jeffrey Epstein was doing with all those girls?
Girls. Not women.
They are or were children.
It’s called child rape.

Andy Lack of NBC News should be fired and should never work in journalism ever again. Noah Oppenheim should be fired from NBC News and should never work in journalism ever again. https://twitter.com/VanityFair/status/1182705816710926338
Elizabeth Warren is running this completely false ad against Facebook and Zuckerberg to challenge Facebook’s unwillingness to block misleading ads.
Tech companies: We tolerate harassment and hate so we can enable political dissent, public squares, free speech
Also tech companies: Censor the Hong Kong protestors and kill all their communication channels
Self driving cars are a massive scam. https://twitter.com/halhod/status/1182546789808799745
If you want to get my book 1 day before everyone else to @cambridgepl on the 21st and see me and @gregmepstein talk about it! https://twitter.com/cambridgepl/status/1182666915711520773
This is both trash and hilarious. #walmartisnotfamily https://twitter.com/rwdsu/status/1182315650041176067
These quotes on Guilded Age California from 1850 & 1879, via @kimmaicutler in @TechCrunch a few years ago are...incredible. https://techcrunch.com/2016/01/29/nothing-like-this-has-ever-happened-before/
Something about the climate disaster in California that people don't realize: Most of the areas being hit hardest aren't wealthy. Paradise, California had an average income of about $26,000 a year. Four in ten Californians live in or near poverty
If you dont think the women running for President have it harder, consider the last 24 hrs. People are questioning if Warren was fired for being pregnant because it wasnt admitted on official records and Harris is being asked about misconduct at a law firm where she never worked.
Here's what Rowena Chiu is defying:
-- Decades of silence re Weinstein
-- One of the most suffocating settlements we've ever seen
--Stereotypes of Asian women as compliant
-- And now, a threat of legal retaliation by Weinstein
