Black Twitter is the barbershop or beauty salon of social media that has made massive waves across America and the world.
CBS REPORTS interviews celebrities and influencers like The Daily Show’s Roy Wood Jr., author and journalist Jemele Hill, comedian Kevin Fredericks, and cultural critic Jamilah Lemiuex. These and other thought leaders chronicle the history of Black Twitter, how it has spread to other platforms like Instagram, LinkedIn and TikTok, and explore the social sphere where Black people started a community and ended up creating a pop culture juggernaut and driver of social justice.
