“‘Zola’ Turns A Twitter Nightmare Into High Art”

Grant that Zola King did not end up in her wild-ass situation, detailed via Imgur (so you don’t have to hunt the thread down on Twitter), because of Twitter, but do grant that we all know about it because of Twitter, and that counts for something. In fact it counts for everything. Without that, we wouldn’t have Janicza Bravo’s wonderful new film, simply titled Zola.

I worked hard writing this piece; unpacking the role Twitter plays in Zola’s story wasn’t easy, and talking about that without removing the context of Bravo’s film wasn’t easy, either. But I did it! And now you can read about it!

The full piece is available over at Mic.
