But was it really any worst than previous years?
If there was a list of 12 best Twitter moments for Asian Americans, what would you like to see on that list?
#NotYourAsianSidekick by Suey Park and the #StandwithSangeeta hashtags generated by Deepa Iyer and other South Asian American leaders would rank high. How about the excitement on Twitter over the movie Linsanity by Evan Jackson Leong or the push back Asian Americans generated against many of the racist Twitter attacks cited by Leung.
