Advice for using social media after a mass shooting
A preview of next week's episode with Bridget Todd, the host of There Are No Girls on the Internet
Hi all! No new episode today, but check your podcast feeds for a preview of next week’s episode, featuring There Are No Girls On the Internet host Bridget Todd.
I’m very excited to share the full interview with you: It’s fun, it’s smart, and Bridget has an A+ list of follow recommendations to share. But because she’s also an expert on online disinformation and extremism, I started the conversation by asking her for some advice about how to use social media in the wake of events like Tuesday’s mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.
Bridget’s advice is excellent, and I hope you’ll take a few minutes to go listen to the new mini-sode today. It really might help.
As I say in the episode, I’m also asking Follow Friday listeners to join me in giving to the Texas Elementary School Shooting Victims Fund. This is a fundraiser that has been verified and vetted by GoFundMe, and is organized by VictimsFirst, a network of families of the deceased and survivors from over two decades of previous mass shootings. 100 percent of the funds raised will be paid out in cash to the same sort of families in Uvalde.
