THE INGENUE

Name: Tavi Gevinson

Handle: @tavitulle

Day job: High school sophomore, editor of Rookie

Claim to fame: She has gone from fashion icon to zeitgeist-y, razor-sharp editor all in a couple years’ time. And she’s 15.

Love the notion of Jewish tweeters! Love Margarita Korol’s art. But the layout made this hard to read — either put all the tweets in boxes or none. And I think when a piece is this long, it has to be really tight; the what-makes-each-user-Jewish reasoning was often tenuous, the mix of Kaplans was a bit confusing to read (and awfully inside-baseball) and the layout didn’t help with the disjointedness. (But other than that, Mrs Lincoln, I really did like the play.)
