  1. thinking about it; it's not exactly usual - ticket inspectors didn't used to be accompanied by/replaced by police - but it's become usual now

  2. In one sense I was really happy that my tweets were being so widely shared, and by quite a few white people. I was glad that it seemed so unacceptable to them

  3. But then my followers started to shoot up, my mentions were flooded and it started to get hard to keep track of it all. I suppose it's sad in a way that I saw people's horror and thought 'you don't know the half of it, this is nothing' but also frustrated that an experience like mine was being held up as shocking when much, much worse, commonplace experiences are not being talked about that widely...

  4. Some of the reactions then began to seem almost farcical to me
