If you're into #FilmTwitter at all, Karen Han has the wildest takes. She’s big into the director Bong Joon-ho, big time into that. My friend Jill Gutowitz, she Tweets the most ridiculous shit from a queer female perspective, a perspective that I only want to see more of on the internet. I feel like no one's doing satire better than Reductress. I'm embarrassed by how many times I've thought something or said something to a friend and then in a few days, it's showed up on Reductress ironically, and I'm like, right, yeah, I'm the bad guy here. [laughs]
I know that everyone loves him but I think @jaboukie is almost single-handedly defining the voice of Twitter right now. You see Jaboukie Tweet something and then the next day, everyone's Tweeting in that same voice, and I don't even know if he's getting enough credit for that. Josh Gondelman is known for being the kindest comedian in the industry and periodically he hops on Twitter and just says “I'm around for five minutes if anyone needs a pep talk.” If people respond, he finds a real thing to say and validates people on Twitter pretty regularly; strangers, friends, anyone. It's beautiful.
Just now I'm reaching a point where I'm realizing it's one thing to mindlessly scroll, but when you're actively talking to people and maintaining conversations, it can end up taking a lot of currency that I might want to spend in other places. I think that the only way to stay true to yourself online is to not overthink it. So if you find yourself thinking, “This needs to be funny,” I don't know, maybe by trying to be funny, you're actually being less authentic, which is inherently less interesting.
