Wired: Social Media Reminds Us of the Year That Wasn’t

Wired: Social Media Reminds Us of the Year That Wasn’t. “For the past seven days, my timelines—and presumably timelines everywhere—have been filled with people’s remembrances of where they were when, say, they heard the NBA was shutting down, or that travel was becoming increasingly dangerous. There’s even a new Twitter feed devoted to this: @YearCovid, which is dedicated to ‘livetweeting the covid pandemic as it happened on this date in 2020.’ Following the account means getting semi-frequent reminders of what the news stories and social media reactions were on any given day in 2020. If you were starting to feel like there weren’t enough reminders of how much you life has changed, this feed will solve that.”
