Like so many Twitter threads that go viral, this one started with lots of passion and a strong statement.
The Twitter account @trippypapa (“jack”) began on Monday like this: “if any of my tweets ever go viral I hope it’s this one; the GRAND CANYON is facing a big problem right now. there’s no national news coverage about this and some very rich people want to keep it that way”.
He went on to say that the Italian developer Stilo Development Group USA bought land in the heart of the Kaibab National Forest near the Grand Canyon, and that if the developer gets approval from the town of Tusayan, “they plan to build over 2000 houses, a spa, a convention center, and potentially a ‘water park’.”
