This weekend I was interviewed for a segment on NPR's All Things Considered regarding that #browntwitterbird who won't quit. (Get caught up on your Twitter bird history by clicking here.) The story features myself, Jack & Jill Politics co-creator Baratunde Thurston and Alicia with Instant Vintage. It also contains insight from the Slate.com tech writer who started this whole mess. (He was just curious! Geez, why y'all takin' being a fetish so darn personal! You'd think black people had some history of everyone taking rote, boring things we do and writing 15-part essays, funding government studies and writing epic "white people tweet like this" but "black people tweet like this" jokes.) The story will air this afternoon, but you can read what myself and Slate's Farhad Manjoo said here.
