Twitter Web App : It should make difference that you are press, you are an essential worker and you have the right to be there, but it doesn't unfortunately. That doesn't mean you have to stop your reporting, or leave. Just think about how you can continue to do it safely without being combative

Twitter Web App : Spoke to some of 1,500 protesters arrested by NYPD. Most had been peaceful. Nikko Lester had seizure after being beaten by 4 officers & handcuffed.
