Ok, so for you former Plussers, or anyone else, I finally put links to all my current social media profiles on my home domain page. We'll see which of the various newer places actually gets some serious buy-in from users.

I have O-negative blood, I'm HIV-negative, and I've been on PrEP continuously for years.
I'm basically a Sure Thing. You'd think they would have wanted me to donate long before now.
The personal is political.
Everything is political.
Never let anyone - advocate or government - tell you that our individual choices and actions have the same level of influence as structural change and industrial action.
We WANT to give blood. We aren't ALLOWED to.
Correct. One is a needed medical procedure, and the other is a book club. https://twitter.com/Liz_Wheeler/status/1244770737065349120
And @GovernorLittle@twitter.com signs trans-exclusionary bills into law on #TransDayOfVisibility. That's not just sickening, it's spiteful.
Stats. Testing rates in most states are still terribly low (it's why I didn't have a snowball's chance in Atlanta summer to get one here), but the more alarming stats show up *per capita*. Mississippi and many Plains states are in deep trouble. #COVID19
Ticketmaster still charging a $10.80 service fee
For change of pace, here's a concrete but subtle example of #bierasure.
This article claims Seven is shown to be "gay" and her romantic interests could "grow [and] change", while the show established no gender exclusivity.
So: Seven could be bisexual too.
It's safe to say that I'm emotionally numb to it all now.
That's a pretty standard coping mechanism, and why I tend to be the one in my friend group to take the torch in crisis situations.
I can fully grieve and let it out when the world is closer to normal again. #COVID19
#Medicare4All is not just a talking point. It's a matter of life and death.
Time to sign on to it, @JoeBiden@twitter.com.
So let me get this straight: the Trump administration is willing to hand out $500B to corporations to save executives, but isn't willing to spend $1 billion on more ventilators to save the American people?
Bleh crossposter still didn't properly link this. Thread here:
It's not just older people.
.... I just lost a friend to #COVID19... because the American medical system refused to test him...
he died of cardiac arrest today... he was 25, and he died because they didn’t think he was a priority...
We spoke Monday about it... and they wouldn’t test him.
When friends downplayed the risks as shutdown actions started, arguing red-faced that it's all "overreaction," I said that I hoped to be proven wrong.
I'm *not* happy to be right about the number of cases getting a lot worse. This is just the beginning.
