Author Terry McMillan can’t seem to stay off of Twitter. The social media platform allows public figures to have a consistent voice that many of them utilize to either say something distinctly profound or utterly ridiculous. McMillan said she was going to take some time off of Twitter to work on an upcoming book, but she broke the promise a week later.
The outspoken author has said a great deal about recent presidential debates, and other happenings in the political space. Here are some examples of recent tweets:
“I wish there was a rule enacted and enforced that would make all candidates retract and admit all falsehoods.”
“I wish Lehrer would ask him if you want smaller government why are you trying to tell women what to do with their bodies?”
“I wish Mitt would STFU.”
“The President seemed tired. As if he just didn’t feel like arguing over all of Mitt’s b.s. lies because they were just too thick.”
And finally, “The debate was like disappointing s*x.”
Terry has always marched to the beat of her own drummer, and seems to have a lot to say. Like a lot of other black women, Terry is a huge fan of President Obama. The Huron, Michigan native loves Twitter as a venue that allows her to say things that give her a consistent voice, but probably make her publicists cringe. It’s hard to predict if this is going to help or hurt book sales.
Terry’s most interesting life experience came when she “got her groove back” by marrying 20-year old Jonathan Plummer. It turned out that he just happened to be gay. She is also talking about Plummer in her next book, which might mean that she’s still holding a grudge. Moves like this could mean that Terry is a bit impulsive with her decisions, so maybe Twitter isn’t the venue for her. But then again, she is filthy rich and famous already, so maybe she doesn’t have to care.
