Black Twitter, as correspondent Roy Wood Jr. explained with help from Jamilah Lemieux and Elon James White, is similar to the black barber shop, in that it’s an epicenter of cultural discussion. It’s been a key part of organizing movements, challenging those in power, starting important discussions like April Reign’s hashtag #OscarsSoWhite, calling out offenders, and sharing incredible stories. Black users make up 25 percent of Twitter users in the U.S., but they also face an inordinate amount of hateful and racist messages.
They even explained why Black Twitter loves Beyoncé so much: it’s not just her music.
