So excited to have @KarenJHanrahan on @Twitter! I'm inspired by her work at GlideSF to care for and advocate for some of the most vulnerable members of our community and I know she will bring a unique and critical perspective to the public conversation.

Day 2 is not faring any better ☹️
Someone should have warned me that I'd be hopelessly distracted/anxious for hours after dropping my kid off at school for the first time...

Oof. Praying for people’s safety. #HurricaneIda
As meteorologists at the National Weather Service Slidell office, we can't bear to see this on satellite. We have hard times ahead, but we will all persevere. Take all messages we, public officials and broadcast media are saying SERIOUSLY. Stay tuned for more frequent updates.

Content disputes escalate upstream into payment or storage disputes. If you want different outcomes, look for the helpers building new storage and payment infrastructure ...

Grieving the loss of Bernie this weekend. A special person taken much too soon. 💔
Yesterday @twitter lost one of our own. @nbrg, Michael Nierenberg, or “Bernie” was a kind, curious, passionate human being with a beautiful mind. He fought hard for more than 2 years against cancer, remaining optimistic throughout. May his memory be a blessing. #OneTeam

Respectfully disagree with almost everything here… I loved my time at @nyulaw - it was challenging but I also found time to enjoy all the vibrancy and fun of NYC. In short, this was not my experience in law school or my path to a legal career I love.
Since now's the time when people who went to law school give advice to incoming 1Ls, here's my advice: 1) Make work your default state. It's fine to go out with friends or do anything else that you want to do. But if you haven't planned to do something fun, work.

Proud to help support the work of @mercycorps around the world...from Haiti to Afghanistan. The damage in Haiti has been catastrophic with reports that more than 1,400 people have died. They need our help - if you are able, please join me and donate now: mercycorps.org/donate/earthq…
Some 10,000 people have gone to Kabul City fleeing the fighting. They are only a fraction of the more than 3.5 million displaced around the country. @mercycorps will stay and help Afghans as much as we safely can.

If you're in the California East Bay, at least 60 new Afghan refugees will be resettled by the end of the month. @JFCSEastBay is coordinating volunteer and donation efforts here: jfcs-eastbay.org/urgent-afgh…

A year ago tonight, after a day of record setting heat, this thunderstorm complex arrived from the remnants of tropical storm Fausto. Lightning from this storm sparked numerous wildfires over the following days. Gusty winds in excess of 70mph were also observed that night.
Here's the latest satellite imagery combined with lightning flash density overlaid. As you can see, we have a very active line of thunderstorms off the coast. Strong, erratic outflow winds of 50mph are possible with these thunderstorms. #CAwx
