I spend a lot of time on Twitter, and it’s how I get ideas for many of my stories. In this feature, I’ll share tweets of interest I came across during the past week.

This past week, I wrote about the NFL’s new “Kaepernick Policy,” which effectively bans the player protests Colin Kaepernick inspired. In the piece, I talk about how we’re being propagandized to use certain language when discussing his stance. These bullying tactics have all been employed before.

Here’s a tweet from Haymarket Books providing a grim reminder: A German football club was banned from playing in 1934 for failing to give the Nazi salute before a match.

One of the things I like about Twitter is the way media get clipped, repackaged, and reshared. Here’s a tweet showing Fox Sports’ Nick Wright defending Colin Kaepernick and effectively rebutting the “disrespecting” national symbols arguments last September. If you’re into the sportsball, Wright is a pretty good follow.

One of my favorite Twitter accounts is @archpics, which shows amazing architecture from all over the world. Here’s a tweet showing a monolithic, rock-cut church in Lalibela, Ethiopia. It’s now on my bucket list to go see these structures (which I never knew existed!) in person.

I’ll close with one of my favorite genres of content: rapping kids. This little girl spits flames!
