 #CMCC Mean Tweets: Backs in Motion Edition

The twitterverse can be a battlefield…..and this time, it's behind the walls of #CMCC. Inspired by Jimmy Kimmel's "Mean Tweets" mania, watch CMCC students & faculty call out their haters and read some of the not so nice things written about them participating in #BacksinMotion.

Created by the ingenious: Daniel Srouji (Class of 2017)
