So Sad Today

On July 5th, 2012, Melissa Broder tweeted “sad today.” She did it anonymously under the handle So Sad Today. That was the first of many raw, honest and often funny tweets she posted on the account. She quickly drew a Twitter following of more than 300,000 and she remained anonymous for several years. She revealed her identity last year when she decided to write a book of essays. The resulting book is called, “So Sad Today,” just like the Twitter account, and Melissa Broder talks to Madeleine about it.
