About the Episode
Just how powerful is social media today? A former NASA intern recently found out for herself. Dwayna Haley joins us on The SHEQUALITY Podcast today and gives her thoughts on personal social media censorship. Is it okay to share whatever you want online or should you tone it down when it comes to public platforms?

- Instead of using words you’d have to bleep out on television, use alternative ways to express your excitement or frustration.
- As an employee of any company, you need to learn how to thread the needle on social media between your first amendment rights AND your employers’ policies.
- We can all learn from how Taylor Swift conducts herself on social media.
