I am active on Twitter now. Follow me at @egana_jr if you dare. There is an underscore, not a period so take note that it’s different from my Instagram. I tend to post about social justice, writing, and self-care reminders.
My “most popular” tweet is about #Wokemon. I don’t know how it happened, but this is maybe the closest I’ll ever get to going viral.
So #Wokemon is the best meme ever. Childhood + Consciousness. Can't go wrong with that.

After the exposure, I had some interesting threads with folks about #BlackLivesMatter, free speech versus hate speech, and the faultiness of this country’s two-party system. It gets the conversation going, although limited to 140 characters.
Before, I didn’t get Twitter at all. Now I know that it can be volatile or harmless. It’s tricky to understand initially, but it makes a lot more sense now. I think so, anyway.
