No, we’re not kidding…
“Black Twitter” Recognized Through An Official Wikipedia Page
It’s official, Black Twitter has made it.
The almighty, powerful force that is the social media community behind “Paula’s Best Dishes” and Black BuzzFeed, and is even responsible for snatching away the book deal dreams of Zimmerman trial juror B37 has left us in awe once again by scoring a page on Wikipedia.
The Black Twitter Wikipedia page, which was posted on Wednesday, defines it as a “cultural identity in the Twitter social network focused on issues of interest to the black community, particularly in the United States.”
It goes on to chronicle African-Americans’ over-indexing use of the social network, and the distinctly different ways the community interacts on the site, as well as the entity’s influence on social change.
Of course, once Black Twitter heard the news, Black Twitter did what Black Twitter does best– erupt into full-blown commentary.
As a people, we certainly have the power to create change, discourse, and endless entertainment through our unique use of the social media platform.
