Black Twitter became a mainstream buzz term late last year after receiving top billing in a Wikipedia article. Developed from within the fast moving Twitter network, this growing cultural subset has become a powerful collective of varying minds from all corners of the world.
Although Black Twitter has attracted some media attention for its ability to roast people for a variety of reasons, there are some within that group that have sway in the world of media, academics, music and other fields. From humorous quips to challenging racism, the group morphed into something valuable in the crowded spaces of social media where many Black folks are often shut out.
