Yes, I know the correct grammar is “It blew up” but come on!
Anyway, my definition of Twitter blowing up is probably pretty tame. I’m not talking hundreds of hits or anything. But over the course of 24 hours, I got about 2 dozen likes and/or retweets on a few posts I had made on the subject of A&E’s documentary series about the Ku Klux Klan. Specifically on the topic of the show being cancelled before it even aired.
Here are those Tweets.
Dave-El @dave_el1938 Dec 24 So I see that A&E's KKK series has been cancelled. And I was so looking forward to laundry tips on how to get my whites even whiter.

Perhaps A&E's KKK series would've gone over better with a different title. I was thinking "Boyz Under the Hoodz".

Maybe A&E's KKK series can find another channel. Add some comedic sound F/X & snarky pop up texts, BET might be interested.
If A&E's KKK series has been cancelled, poor white racists have no platform to express themselves that isn't Fox News.
One of my ways to get a quick blog post with little effort is to just cut and paste some of my Tweets under the heading of Reheated Tweets. But this topic I thought warranted a bit more discussion.
Tomorrow is Saturday which is also New Year’s Eve. Right here on the blog, we wrap up the year with two (yes, TWO!) posts in one day.
As the sun comes up, I bring down the darkness with the bad stuff of 2016 (and there was a lot).
Then as the sun goes down, I turn the light on the good things from 2016 (and there was more than you might expect).
These respective posts will go live at 5AM and 5 PM (Eastern Time, United States).
Until next time, remember to be good to one another.
