I started being consistent [with content] in October, but I’ve always enjoyed short-form videos like Vine. When I started to get some virality, I thought about other ways I could put my random thoughts out into the world, and Twitter’s been a fun space for me to experiment. I like to see what people relate to on the platform, and, if a Tweet does well, I consider making it a video. The other day I Tweeted, “Tell me a millennial anxiety without telling me,” and the comments were amazing. The Twitter audience has been so supportive. All these experiences I thought I was alone in come up in a thread, and I can’t believe how relatable the content is to everyone.
Having this blue checkmark is validating, but I remember being on the other side of that. If someone who I'm a fan of likes my comment or engages with me when I put my thoughts out there, it’s so validating. It sends me to the moon. So with my platform, I want to help others feel important.
To that point, I think people are more natural and their true selves on Twitter. People truly feel like they can approach others on the platform. I can see and respond to my followers better, and the people who follow me are interested in my content specifically. I'm doing something that I'm finally passionate about, and it's given me a lot of anxiety, but the support of nearly 2M people has been kind of pushing me through it.
