I sent in the article about Bangladesh. I mean, I’ll admit I used to have a condescending attitude to “Twitter activists”. (Mostly because I still have small scars on my arms from when acid was thrown on me.) But in a totalitarian state, I can see Twitter’s value (though, like the anonymous author, I prefer platforms that allow more than 140 bytes). And, of course, they will find out, but social media are the only option in those countries.
That 30 cm moth is pretty awesome.
