+ DeRay Mckesson discussed Black Lives Matter and building tools for digital activism in an interview with The Verge. "I think that we have to be open to new ways of organizing and new ways of building community," said Mckesson, adding:
I’m mindful that we aren’t born woke, something wakes us up, and for so many people, what woke them up was a tweet or a Facebook post, an Instagram post, a picture. I never criticize people who [others] deem to be Twitter activists, or hashtag activists, because I know that telling the truth is often a tough act, no matter where you tell that truth. I think that’s important. I think that we’ll continue to see the platforms push and redefine the way we organize.
+ Welp, just when you thought she had it all, Taylor Swift is getting her own TV channel thanks to AT&T. Launching today, Taylor Swift NOW is part of DirecTV NOW, the network's new streaming service.
