It may not be as well-defined as Black Twitter, but there’s now a distinct community of Jewish tweeters with a shared sensibility and set of concerns
Name: Tavi Gevinson
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.
How Jewish? 6. “Happy new year to my fellow tribe members”
Specialty: Striking the exact right balance between the level of self-awareness Twitter requires and genuine earnestness. Not incidentally, this is also what makes her credible as a precocious yet real teenager.
It’s a shame you can’t see on twitter that everything i say is immediately followed with either a cringe or mumbling about hating myself
