1/ What’s it like starting an anonymous Twitter account in an effort to expose a powerful billionaire of malfeasance? The simple answer is this: Don’t do it.

Anthony fell on hard times — and became homeless, but he always had his good boy “Bobo” by his side. When Bobo disappeared, Anthony searched for him to no avail for weeks. But eventually found him at the local shelter. Here’s the reunion.— Rex Chapman🏇🏼 (@RexChapman) August 15, 2020
