Most days Twitter absolutely sucks.
Sure, it has its share of cute dog photos and clever memes, but it’s often a hub for distressing news, concerning exchanges between politicians, and harassment that isn’t always met with consequences.
On Fridays, however, Twitter gets good. Like, really good. And it’s all thanks to 81-year-old actress and activist Jane Fonda.
Every Friday since Oct. 11, photos and videos of Fonda protesting on Capitol Hill, and in some cases being arrested, have dominated Twitter. She’s always wearing the same iconic outfit — a $500 bright red coat from Neiman Marcus, black pants and shoes, and, if the day calls for it, a statement hat like a black beret. And she’s never alone.
