Tweets of the day: Impeachment, Mars, Ida and Shirley, cultural norms and vaccine websites

There are many – so, so many tweets about the impeachment trial underway that it was hard to stop at two, but here you go. Also, saying hello to Mars, Ida B Wells and Shirley Chisolm have something to say, Whitewashing history, requiring ties and creating a working vaccine website for $50.


The Senate trial begins with a graphic video showing the events of January 6th. Some GOP senators turned away and would not watch. You should.

The defense did not go so well

Hello, Mars!

Love me some Ida B. Wells

Shirley Chisholm: “If they don’t give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair.”

The Whitewashing of Black genius

Are ties a “colonial noose”? Should indigenous people be required to wear them? New Zealand’s parliament thinks so.

Update: That didn’t take long. And yet, in so many ways, it took generations.

So – this is amazing.
