Follow Us on Snapchat!

Every generation has a story, but unlike any time before, our story will be told through venues never afforded to previous generations. Millennials have access to numerous elaborate means of communication, but among our age group use of Facebook and Twitter are on the decline. So what’s the next tool for millennials?
First appearing on the scene in 2011, Snapchat has turned into a driving force in the world of social media. Currently, it has 100 million daily active users “snapping” over 400 million photos/videos.
Behind its success is its ephemerality; here one second, gone the next. As millennials, we are attracted to the app’s use of brevity and stress on privacy. Along with that, it enables users to tell the story of their daily lives from start to finish.
So today, we are proud to announce TMI’s new snapstory, txminstitute! There we’ll share interviews, activism, events, and announcements to keep millennials on the beat of what’s happening in the Lone Star State in this fun format.
This will be our story of how we overcame a world of endless war, needless death at the hands of a failing criminal justice system, horrific immigration restrictions, the loss and erosion of our civil liberties, increased paternalism, rampant oppression on many fronts, and basically just crisis after crisis.
