CREATOR ECONOMY NEWSLETTER
Issue 80 | November 3, 2022
Creators increasingly have power over a younger generation that often gets its news scrolling through social media feeds. This month, the White House invited more than 20 TikTok creators to meet President Joe Biden and discuss pressing political topics. And it isn’t the first time the White House has invited creators over—remember earlier in the year when it asked creators to make content surrounding the war in Ukraine?
This week, Passionfruit contributor Syris Valentine shares the story of Alex Haraus, who spearheaded a letter-writing campaign larger than any other reported.
