Nonprofit Tweets of the Week – 3/10/17

The past week was marked by President Trump‘s diversionary, unsubstantiated, and seemingly unhinged claim that President Obama wiretapped him followed by reports that James B. Comey, the F.B.I. director, had asked the Justice Department to refute this claim; a revised but still highly controversial and very possibly unconstitutional travel ban; release of the House Republicans plan for repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act, which was crafted without analysis by the Congressional Budget Office and without indication of the cost or the number of people affected; and International Women’s Day.  Have a listen to Katy Perry‘s Roar while perusing our curated nonprofit tweets of the week:
