3-Emoji Review: We Make It MSP

Posted on: 10/21/15


A Literal Minnesota Movement

Make It. MSP. is a collective effort of Greater MSP, various makers groups and other involved community members to create a destination for people who are considering making the Twin Cities their new home. #MakeItMSP started trending on Tuesday. Why, do you ask? They held a press conference announcing the official launch of #MakeItMSP. Utilize the tool to encourage all of your long distance friends to move here.

Go ahead, read Dorsey’s letter to employees. It’s longer than 140 characters.

Designer of Target’s Newest Fashion Collaboration: Qui moi?
Target newest style collaboration is out? Color me all things monochromatic (totally in this year) and excited! Because guess what else: you’ll have a say in what’s being offered.

Ok, back to the “you’ll have a say part.” Who, What, Wear founders Katherine Power and Hillary Kerr will take to social media to become inspired and see what users want to buy. Deliver ladies, DE-LIVER. The line is set to hit Target’s site come February.
