Friday Five: Weekly Twitter Roundup 10/31/14

3 min read

Here are five things you may have missed on Twitter this week.

Happy Halloween | Friday Five Weekly Twitter Roundup | The Girl Next Door is Black

 

1. If there’s one thing the internet does well, it’s obsess over pay homage to kitty cats and #NationalCatDay proved no different:

 

2.  Jesse Williams, of Grey’s Anatomy and “hot eyes” fame, is one of the more sociopolitically active celebrities on Twitter. This week, he went in on racial inequality, Ferguson and “you should really know better” Halloween costumes. (I’ve only posted a subset, check out his timeline for more.)

 

3. video of a woman getting catcalled on the streets of New York went viral, prompting a stream of comments on street harassment. #streetharassment

 

4. In honor of Halloween, Comedy Central’s @Midnight challenged Tweeters to share their #ScaryStoriesin5Words.

 

5. Each Halloween a topic of grave importance and subject of intense debate arises, candy corn: gross or nah?

 

Happy Halloween everyone!

    Love M.A. Chabolla’s comment on candy corn “ever. damn. year.” For me, I actually have to try several pieces before I finally say “eewww!”

    Ohhh…Jesse Williams! He’s even hotter to me now. 🙂

    Also, candy corn is definitely not my thing.

    And as for catcalling…I think men need to grow up!

      I think I saw a few girls and guys propose to Jesse Williams via Twitter after that. Hehe.

      +1 on the grossness of candy corn.

      I was glad to see some men speak out against catcalling and other street harassment on Twitter. It can’t just be women trying to change things.
