"Let's treat this as the emergency this is." Sobering words from @zeynep: if we don't seize the moment, we may never get it back. #nmvsummit
"The first opportunity to demonstrate teeth is a wave election in 2018." - @zeynep. And then it just gets harder from there. #nmvsummit
Tools like ResistBot make direct contact less powerful, says @zeynep. For a movement to succeed it must have teeth. #nmvsummit
Super-privileged to get to see @zeynep speak. I have her book, which is vital reading for today's moment. #nmvsummit
Excited to be at the #NMVSummit today. So many amazing people in the room thinking about the future of media and democracy.
