Anyone who’s regularly on social media, and Twitter specifically, knows that it can be an ugly place. Trolls, hate speech, and getting into arguments with people you don’t even know and will never meet can suck the joy out of Twitter. But sometimes the community can come together and create something awesome, and that happened last week. With the VERY WELCOME news that Agent Carter had received a season 2 pickup, Mikki Kendall (who has a kick-ass essay in the back of Bitch Planet #4, if you haven’t read it yet) sent out a simple tweet calling for more diversity in the show.

And oh boy, did Twitter respond. In the best way possible. These are just a few of the amazing tweets that came from the hashtag #DiversifyAgentCarter. Check out the full list of tweets, if you have a sec!
