On Only Retweeting Women Of Colour in Black History Month

After seeing a tweet which I now cannot find urging me to only retweet Women of Colour for Black History Month, I tried it out.
I learnt:
  •  I do not follow enough Women of Colour, so I asked for recommendations and now follow some superb women, examples being Sunny Singh and Tressie Mc
  • Most people posting content on Twitter are white men. It was an active task to not RT white men when I saw something I agreed with and wanted people to know I supported.
  • White Men tend to tweet a lot
  • There's a lot of insight and interest that I was just missing out on.
Totally recommend doing this, for Black History month or at any other time.
