Black Twitter will finally have a light shined on them and that’s thanks to Prentice Penny. 

The Insecure executive producer is set to direct a three-part docuseries called Black Twitter. This new series was inspired by the story, A People’s History of Black Twitter written by Jason Parham for Wired. 

The story follows “the rise, the movements, the voices and the memes that made Black Twitter an influential and dominant force in nearly every aspect of American political and cultural life.” Black Twitter has become a staple on the social media app and has become known as some of the best investigators, reports, etc. on the app. 

Penny made the announcement about the new project on his Twitter account. “For those who know me you know how much love, respect, fear, and admiration I have for #BlackTwitter so I can’t be more excited and scared to do a doc about the culture- just remember I’m doing this in love.”
