Leaving Twitter was one of the best things that happened to me mentally.

If your feeling unhappy and life. I suggest you leave Twitter. Twitter might have some cool
Things but oh man it's toxic. I only stayed for some people and attempted to make friends. Luckily that succeeded and I talk to them regularly elsewhere. However when I left the bird. I joined as I wanted to make friends, however it is super mentally draining. It's very political, full of things you might not want to talk about at the dinner table and parties. People always fight and not get along. People aren't the nicest too. It only gotten worse dude to a new ceo and policy changes. On the day I deleted my account. I felt great! Felt refreshed. Felt happier. If you are feeling upset about life, take a break from Twitter and if you are ready, ditch it all together. #help #Tips #MentalHealth #Media #SocialMedia #Anxiety #Happiness

How Presentation Affects Representation - #DwhellOnIt Ep. 56

📺 -

🗣 - "Taylor Lakhryst was an undecided voter who participated in a #CBC program called Face to Face during last year's federal election campaign. While being on the show gave her a chance to ask questions of a party leader, she felt CBC's production choices spoiled the experience by making her appear inept and powerless."

"While you expressed #Gratitude for the #Opportunity to provide visibility on the subject of abuse toward the 2SLBGTQIA+ #Community , you felt that #CBC made choices which diluted your appearance. It left you feeling, if not misrepresented, then underrepresented."

It feels as if #CBC chose to represent me as what I interpret as inept, powerless, and stuck with candy-coated concerns because who I am isn't palatable enough for Canadians who can't cope that #people such as myself strive to inspire and create #change .

#social platforms highlighted my segment as being of the utmost importance on an issue that had not been placed front and centre in the campaign until my appearance.

I continued to focus much of my argument on the treatment of my introductory video. I emphasized how problematic it was that this video highlighted "my love for #Sports and karaoke" while omitting more substantive #Comments about the importance of placing responsibility for bigotry and hate-based abuse on the abusers rather than the victims.

"I'm an undecided voter because" and "Let's be #leaders …" were extracted from two completely different sections of what I provided. #CBC created that line and not me, and I'm not sure if that is conducive to "accuracy."

"You stated that you followed all the directives given to you in advance by producers, yet you were the only one of the four participants given less than 40 seconds of airtime."

"You also reiterated that #CBC exercised poor judgment when it failed to include your exchange about pronouns with #ErinOToole .”

#CBC watered me down and presented me with the safest, most palatable and most comfortable image they could build based on the information I provided.

"Your complaint is, first and foremost, a reminder that the stories journalists tell are not really "theirs." They are the stories of real #people with real lives, ambitions, and concerns."

Journalistic Standards and Practices covers much ground regarding ethical #Journalism but doesn't cover specific circumstances.

"There is more debate to be had about editing your introductory video … it's clear that those producers took two risks with your video."

"On your frustration that the #question you asked on the show was "negotiated," … I worried it meant that programmers were forcing you to ask the questions that they wanted."

Selma Blair: "When people... stop me on the street

they want to have a conversation about... how they see their sister in me and how they struggled to believe her. Stories of disability are stories of people.

[I say to] my beloved Hollywood community, please … I just really urge people to see us all."

#Autism #Media

I've tried to reach out to Australian Media Channels such as Guardian Australia, Triple J, Triple J Hack, ABC The Drum, ABC, SBS, SBS Vice etc to see if they would be interested in my opinions on the misconceptions surrounding Autism, how Autism is presented in the media, my life with Autism etc. yet I've had no success.

Anyone know how to engage the Media's interest in what I have to say?
