If I had to be on just one social media platform, it would be Twitter. I find it the perfect platform for words, pictures, news, banter, etc- it forces us to say what we mean- no flowery language.
A well-curated timeline is important for any brand or potential suitor. If you like someone, their Twitter timeline is an important reference check.
A dope Twitter timeline consists of:
- clever use of words
- appropriate use of images/gifs
- palpable personality
Here are my Twitter #faves, in no particular order:
Blitz the Ambassador
After spending half hour trying to speak French/English, me & Ivorian Taxi Driver realized we both spoke Twi. Damn these colonizers bruh🇨🇮🇬🇭 pic.twitter.com/jni9lG83LQ

Blitz the Ambassador is a Ghanaian-American hip-hop and visual artist- but most importantly, my current Twitter crush. His timeline consists of beautifully curated photos, references to black/African history and regular pep-tweets.
Well, the fumes from the DVDs might be toxic and I've still got your money, so by all means borrow my lighter. pic.twitter.com/kVoi8VGEoK

J.K. Rowling is queen of clapbacks. Her timeline is an incredible source of quality banter.

The best source for news concerning Africans and people of African heritage.
Knowing that not all love lasts but still celebrating the love I have when I have it because fuck my fear of endings.

Upile Chisala is my resident timeline poet- always stringing together beautiful words to lift my spirit.
Guys I'm having such a stressful day …. I keep kicking myself off the #1 spot on iTunes, then re kicking myself off the #1 spot … 😫

What would my timeline be without AKA’s regular self-love and rants about the music industry?
That’s it for now. Please let me know who else I should follow on Twitter and make sure to follow me, just because: @tesscherono.
