New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.

Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.

It will take some work.

If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.

Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.

Itโ€™s so funny hearing the same Europeans complain about the heat who also make fun of Americans for being โ€œweakโ€ and having air conditioning

Is there a list of companies profiteering from children concentration camps like Wayfair is? Asking for a consumer friend.

TIL apparently sticky curtain hemming tape is a lie; plan B is safety pins.

โ€œEvery gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.โ€
