This week, Matt Ruby joins us for another edition of Twitter Moments, in which we talk about these topics that were trending on Twitter as we recorded:

White House economic advisor Gary Cohn resigns, New York Times reports

Cynthia Nixon could challenge Andrew Cuomo in the NY governor’s race

How millennials are creating their own written language

We’re also joined by Charles Hinshaw to discuss the recently released movie, Red Sparrow, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Joel Edgerton. Along the way, we’ll also hear from Radio Dispatch’s John Knefel with his thoughts on the extremist ideologies espoused at the recent conservative conference, CPAC; we’ll hear from a woman named Marina, who told us about one of her biggest pet peeves; and we’ll take an exclusive early listen to a performance by by Brooklyn indie-pop songsmith, Renata Zeiguer, from an episode of BTR Live Studio set to be released next week.
