Twitter’s blog post says Tip Jar can be enabled by "creators, journalists and experts". IMHO, I qualify for all 3 for space exploration, but don’t see the option. So Twitter arbitrarily decides who gets this?

FYI creme-crop creators are not the ones who need this as much. 😂

now testing Tip Jar, a new way to give and receive money on Twitter 💸

But if you’re interested in more details on the Moon’s gravitational anomalies, @elakdawalla@twitter.com explains three major GRAIL mission results in her excellent article planetary.org/articles/1211092 (also linked inside my piece).

Here’s a sneak peak at a fun paragraph!

This post is shorter than my usual. I have a mild case of COVID-19. I’m physically fine, and should be back home soon from my isolation center so no worries!

I want to thank the brave service workers because of whom I have my basic needs sorted, and could post this article. :)

Did you know the Moon’s gravity is very lumpy? This has caused many lunar orbiters to crash in the past. My latest article talks about where the Moon hides its concentrated masses. 🌗

Whether or not you like ULA (hint: it’s awesome), you gotta respect Tory for being so utterly responsive, inclusive, and calm. Can’t say the same about any other CEO of a big company, much less a space one.

This is the culture we want space enthusiasts to be born in.

I love the passion of the space enthusiast community and I have a personal goal to make our industry more accessible twitter.com/hkhan_4/status/139

Hey people, never apologize for messaging me or anyone to show your blog, podcast or youtube channel.

Not everyone has access to big publications and distribution channels, or regularly so. If you’re putting in the work, never be afraid to let people know of its existence.

I only got around to seeing “The Mandalorian” now and I think I’ll be using “I have spoken.” a lot going forward.

I ditched Google Analytics from all my websites. By using Analytics, you enable Google to track your visitors across the Web. 😡

All I want is simple, bulk non-individual stats, and the privacy-respecting @PlausibleHQ@twitter.com is delightfully exactly that.

Americans can rave about equality, diversity, and inclusion all they want but it will only come across as legit when they refer to themselves as U.S. citizens.

I legit just sent out an email containing more than a dozen original space memes to all my blog subscribers.

This week’s issue of my Moon exploration newsletter is all about what’s beyond “just” sending humans to the Moon. This decade will end real good.
