Exposing Heightism | Heightism On Twitter Revisited
AtEyeLevel: Heightism is a pervasive social ill, and people who aren’t short seldom acknowledge it exists (usually because they aren’t on the receiving end of the discrimination or fail to pick up on social cues).
Twitter allows us to peer into people’s thoughts in almost real time. We have covered the following twitter page before, but we thought we’d revisit it. “ExposingHeightism” (https://twitter.com/expsnghghtsm) retweets other’s tweets in real time.
Explain what would happen if tweets like these were directed at any other group (i.e. race, weight, class, etc).
Warning: this page isn’t for the faint hearted.
