While Twitter often gets a bad rap for empowering trolls and giving people a platform to share ignorant views, Jamail is grateful for the medium. After all, it helped connect her with her heroes.

“I’m actually not a big Twitter user at all. Not the slightest bit,” she said. “I should consider jumping on the wagon though, possibly! I mean, it did connect us to one another. Hello, Twitter. Thank you for being invented.”
