Important to note on @TexasTribune’s tenth birthday the unsung (or insufficiently sung) hero role played by our founder @thorntonaustin — the visionary who stepped up and said serious journalism needs a nonprofit business model and put a couple million where his mouth was #txlege
Without @thorntonaustin, none of us would be here — I certainly wouldn’t have locked hands with anyone else and driven off the cliff — and @TexasTribune would not exist. *He built this.* This, not his track record as a tech investor, will be the first line of his obit #txlege
And he’s not done changing the world. @thorntonaustin's selfless effort getting @journalismproj started — so our success and that of others can be replicated in communities across the country — is all the evidence needed of his exemplary public citizen status #txlege
Thank you, @thorntonaustin, for giving us hope, motivation, and the occasional kick in the ass. We owe you — all of us #txlege
okay, “ahead of warren” got my attention
THREAD 👇🎉🎂 This is the actual day: the tenth anniversary of @TexasTribune’s launch. On Nov. 3, 2009, we flipped the switch on, but more than a web site was born. We gave vitality to the idea that this stuff matters… #txlege
That searching for the truth and telling people what you find matters. That holding elected and appointed officials — regardless of party, partisanship or ideology — and taxpayer-funded institutions accountable matters… #txlege
That teeing up for people the things important enough for them to stop and pay attention to matters. That giving our fellow Texans the means to be more thoughtful and productive citizens matters. That civic engagement matters… #txlege
From the first day to today, we’ve been guided by our public-service mission. We’ve been committed to publishing news, making data widely accessible and producing dozens of on-the-record events, from one end of Texas to the other… #txlege
We’ve always believed that nonpartisan journalism is the antidote to life in the United States of Confirmation Bias. Facts, not spin. Fair, thorough and accurate. No endorsing candidates, no editorializing on issues, no thumbs on the scale… #txlege
Ten years in, we’re at about 80 employees full and part time, including the most journalists at a state capital anywhere in the country. A state as big as Texas deserves a statehouse news org as big as @TexasTribune… #txlege
Ten years in, we reach more than 2 million people per month across our various platforms with world-class public interest journalism. So proud to say we consistently win the biggest awards in competition with the best of our peers… #txlege
Ten years in, we still give away everything we create for free to anyone who wants to republish, re-air or repost it, and we we still consult at no cost with any social entrepreneurs who want advice on how to create an org like ours from scratch… #txlege
The success of any entity is shared, and that’s especially true at @TexasTribune. Our amazing team, present and past, is responsible for what we’ve accomplished. Staff members from top to bottom, board members, close friends… #txlege
That credit extends to you. If you’re seeing this, you’re probably one of those decent souls who reads, gives, attends, amplifies. You put your faith and trust in us to help you navigate the sometimes choppy waters of Texas… #txlege
Everything we do is for you. We would not and could not have done it without you, and going forward we won’t and can’t do it without you. No amount of thanks is adequate. We are so honored to do this work… #txlege
So happy birthday to you. It’s been ten great years of an audacious experiment in reviving the idea of journalism as a public good — in strengthening our democracy. And happy birthday to us. Here’s to the next ten!… #txlege
Lots to say later today about @TexasTribune’s tenth anniversary — but don’t want to wait to share this vid featuring birthday wishes from @tedcruz, @PeteButtigieg, @KatyTurNBC, @willienelson and many more…
