China is expelling all American journalists w/the NYT, WSJ & WaPo — myself included. So many feelings, but I keep coming back to my last trip, to Wuhan, where ppl were so willing to talk - they wanted the world to know what was happening to them and to hold their govt accountable https://t.co/VQnKk6NITs

Just arrived in Wuhan, the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, which has been under lockdown for more than a week now. The mood among locals: anxiety, flashes of anger & frustration, and extreme boredom. Here I am getting my temperature measured in a hotel lobby. https://t.co/vh8lGR0Ia8

Some mountain villages in Bhutan can only be accessed by helicopter -- or on foot. But pulling off a two-week vaccination campaign was "doable," the health minister told me @nytimesworld https://t.co/5FQwXKFXZ7

Former Chinese premier Wen Jiabao pens a surprisingly emotional, heartfelt tribute to his late mother. It then gets censored in China, likely for the following paragraph. “The China of my heart should be one full of equality & justice.” H/t @Amy_23_Cheng https://t.co/my8h0k2eDV https://t.co/2WdA5ExPki

Coconut jelly ftw 🙌 “For those boba drinkers who are affected by shortages, this may be a chance to try different toppings in their tea, like cheese foam, fruit jellies or egg pudding.” Another Unlikely Pandemic Shortage: Boba Tea https://t.co/esupfEFUNB

“How many more losses must we mourn?” Since testimony in Derek Chauvin’s trial began on March 29, more than three people a day have died at the hands of law enforcement. https://t.co/QeD7iyyEyd

The US and China pledge to do more to reduce carbon emissions after John Kerry's visit. “What we need to do is prove we can actually get together, sit down and work on some things constructively," he told me in an interview in Seoul. https://t.co/4kDwZNg75x

Taiwanese prosecutors charged the driver of a crane truck that slid down an embankment into the path of an oncoming express train, resulting in the island's deadliest train crash in decades. He faces up to 12 years in prison if convicted. w/@amyqin https://t.co/WqCtF09Z8S

Some of the best journalists I’ve ever worked with, and Chinese law forbids us from calling them journalists. https://t.co/rsVBJI2Aie

Daunte Wright was afraid of the police, his mother said, and she could hear it in his voice when she spoke to him as officers pulled him over in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, on Sunday. https://t.co/mlErEBmqm1 https://t.co/hgkDepc2yN

Taiwan's Indigenous hunting cultures are circumscribed by ancient rituals and modern legal restrictions. A court case tied to traditional hunting has thrust the Indigenous rights cause into the spotlight. @amyyqin and I joined a hunt on a recent evening. https://t.co/bFtPRP7PtY

We barely scratched the surface with our story but the history of the Indigenous people in Taiwan is truly fascinating. Thanks to Awi Mona, @ssimon_chelsea & @kerim for sharing expertise. Here’s Vilian & Bayan singing a traditional Bunun gun worshiping song over deer penis wine. https://t.co/kHdnz1hKji

Many drew a distinction w/American hunting culture, calling the use of semiautomatic weapons akin to bullying the animals. Indigenous hunters are legally only allowed use simple rifles that look like what you see in Civil War re-enactments. Yes that’s me. No it wasn’t loaded.😓 https://t.co/FH07B6JvGj
