in fact, epic fail...

Have been a little slow with social media updates since the holidays so forgive me if I wasn't aware of this earlier.

Texas in Africa describes the recent partnership between Twitter and (RED) to celebrate World AIDS Day as a "failure." I wholeheartedly agree. December 1, a day when the entire world promotes AIDS awareness, Twitter has decided to highlight all tweets with the word Africa in red thereby reinforcing an inextricable link between Africa and AIDS.

Seriously, why? Was not aware that today was Africa AIDS day....missed the memo.


  1. What is that link btw Africa and HIV? Isn't it suppose to be World Aids day?
