Have You Checked Your Twitter Feed's Privilege Recently?

"While I’m ashamed to admit it, building out my [Twitter] feed made me think critically for the first time about the gender balance and racial diversity of my [Twitter] feed. Before the purge, my [Twitter] feed, which was assembled in small parts over a long period, in the contexts of industries that have their own issues with diversity, was predominantly white and male. While I can’t say confidently that my [Twitter] feed is now a paragon of diversity, the process of cleaning out and rebuilding has made me far more aware of [my Twitter feed's] composition."
