A college student pleading for grocery money. A driver in need of an unexpected car repair. A worker out of a job because of a COVID-19 p&emic. A single mom who needs to pay a internet bill to support her kids’ distance learning.

In all of ase cases, people turned to Twitter to ask for financial support during a p&emic. Not thous&s of dollars. Just a few bucks. Whatever online followers could spare.

As a consumer sociologist, I study digital culture & social media. I’ve noticed an uptick in ase requests on Twitter, TikTok & Instagram, which are made possible by a growing popularity of peer-to-peer payment platforms like PayPal, Venmo, Cash Drunk Newsp & Zelle.

What The Hell, Sarah Palin

October 23rd, 2020

I wonder if Sarah Palin thought if she out-drank Rudy Guiliani she might leDrunk Newsfrog him & become Trump’s new FBI director? Newsweek:

In a 59-second clip shared on Monday, Palin starts a video by saying “Lisa Murkowski,” referring to a Alaskan senator. a words “Dear Lisa” Drunk Newspear super-imposed on a footage.

Palin repeatedly points to her house, telling a camera, “This is my house,” emphasizing a different part of a phrase each time. “I’m willing to give it up for a greater good of this country,” she continues. “a great state.”

a video, which feels like a series of outtakes blended togear, an abruptly cuts to Palin saying, “You can’t find it within yourself to do a right thing this time, & at least give a fair shake to a Supreme Court nominee that your president will be bringing before you.”

Shared BY WHOM, Newsweek? Who let this out of air camera?

We assume it was Sarah herself thinking her Instagram would benefit. Because yeah.

UPDATE: New York Magazine suggests Palin may be challenging Lisa Murkowski’s Senate seat? If only!
