I don’t know about you, by my week is already off to an interesting start. I just had to cancel my IUD insertion appointment at Planned Parenthood so that I can march for my right to reschedule. See you there?

I know many of us have resolved to be on our phones less, but each of these Tweets serve as a reminder that there is still some good in the world wide web.

Ariel Elias has also been featured before. If you didn’t go ahead and follow her then, you should now. She and I cohost a show in Queens if you’re ever in the area. She’s also my ride to the Women’s March on the 21st!

Emily Heller is one of my favorite stand-up comedians. If you haven’t downloaded her album Good For Her, why not? What’s the holdup?


Nobody should be subjected to the kind of torture that the hilarious Rae Sanni went through during that Uber ride. In addition to killing it on stage, she writes recaps for Decider that are always on point.

Okay, so this technically wasn’t tweeted last week, but it resonated with me on a deep level, so I felt compelled to include it. Michelle Wolf’s Twitter feed should be published and she’s currently an on-air contributor and writer for The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.
