Welcome back to Siez The Day!! If you were here a week ago, saw my last post, and/or follow me on Twitter, you saw that I recently started a video series on Twitter. There aren’t many places (as of YET- you hear that universe?) willing to throw resouces at me for my journalism, content creation, and Africana studies backgrounds, so until then I’m using my own resources and platform(s)!
Thus, #ThisWeek was born. “Okay, well what’s with Siez The Week, then?” you may be asking. The good thing about projects like these, is I can change and adapt things as I learn. Specifically, after I learned that the ‘this week’ hashtag on Twitter is awfully saturated, I knew I could change the name to reflect something more representative of my ~brand~. And according to a poll, most of my viewers agreed! So, #ThisWeek went through some thangs and #SiezTheWeek is here to stay…maybe.
I’m talking entertainment, politics, community/ies, activism, ALL OF IT – today!
And here some more news you might have missed:
1- Black Panther is not playing with us, as is made obvious by these new character posters they’ve released. Click HERE to read more.
2- In today’s edition of WTF and ‘was it worth it?,’ a man had to fake his own death because his wife was going to kill him. Yep, you read that correctly. Read more HERE.
4- Maybe, just maybe, if Twitter actually listened to the concerns of its users, things would be okay. But instead, they do THIS.
5- If you don’t know astrology, I would advise you Google ‘Jupiter in Scorpio.’ It helps to make sense of a lot of otherwise nonsensical things. Like Sia leaking her own nudes. Yep, read more HERE.
6- What a surprise: the guy who loves meaningless uses of the n-word in his films has been accused of doing OTHER freaking terrible things. TW- sexual assault. Read more HERE.
7- NEW BEYONCE MUSIC! I REPEAT: NEW BEYONCE MUSIC: Click HERE!
