I am Elin, also knowns as @bitterhittan. I am a roller derby player in Stockholm Roller Derby and you can recognise me on the track, because I am the one leaving a trail of glitter behind me. Things that are dear to me are family, friends and, of course, my hundred plants. I am a queer feminist and a Hufflepuff.

I also want to mentions that one of my fav things is saffron semlor! https://t.co/1s7rvIF3lh
Throwback to that time I was bench at our Santas vs. Grinch game. (If course the Santas won!) https://t.co/wyYg5VNtDv
For all of you who think October is too soon I just want to let you know that the picture of me as a christmas tree is from April.
@Hallberg23 yeah they are! And of course it is easier to maintain a good environment within smaller communities.
Hey world! Today is 66 days left til Christma's Eve. I am celebrating with a saffron bun for brekfast. https://t.co/Oq4vBhWZCu

Also all of you trying to blame centuries of oppression on "you take on too many immigrants" - please get out off my mentions you are wrong.
@fmfdlr I just put vaseline on my face and then add glitter. Use making tape to make the edges if I want them sharp.
And yes at said after parties we do the other kind of hitting on our opponents. Might get physical, but it is consentual!
Other sport's supporters are directed to different subways, to avoid fights. Meanwhile we are directed to the joint after party.
I can love and support my team without having to bash others in any way. We are one community.
Even when roller derby is played on the highest level you see skaters high five each other on the track for doing awesome things.
I also love roller derby because it does not ever condition me to hate another team. There are no enemies in derby, only frenemies.
I love how roller derby challenge the norms about who does rough sports and how.
For many people roller derby is a safe space that is life changing and so very important.
In roller derby the women and trans people define the context. It is on our terms from the beginning to the end.
Roller derby is different because it is a sport where the man is not the norm, but it is still hard and rough.
Roller derby is a full contact sport on quad skates. It is a sport organized by the skaters for the skaters. It is fierce and awesome!
So roller derby, I promised to tell you alla about how awesome it is!
Good question! We should definitely have a roller derby player in that show. We have so many amazing athletes in th… https://t.co/juCdiFGInl
I don't do sports with balls.
My mentions tell me there is some sport thingy happening. I am sorry to say I have zero fucks to give on this matter.
Lower wages, more sexual violence and harassment, more unpaid house work ETCETERA def shows that the patriarchy is… https://t.co/WXBmBJu8rz
Someone asked me about my shirt. This is it. One of my bestest! It also sums up my love for roller derby very well!… https://t.co/T5ZMsY7GlV
Actually one of my colleagues in the picture also happen to be my derby wifey AND has been the curator for this account way back when.
@opanaught quite easy yeah ^^ She started with Lahti but played mostly with Kouvola since they have a bouting team.
@opanaught coolio, which team? My GF is from Finland and played there before she moved here.
@PeopleOfFinland Fotografiska is always a really nice and solid option. I also like Etnografiska and Nordiska museet (not ad artsy tho).
@skeptikons agree, roller derby is in no way perfect and we are definitely very white. And the gear is expensive AF.
So I was thinking about writing more about roller derby today. Anyone not heard about this amazing sport?
Honestly I was expecting a lot more crap and harassment. Thank you for proving me wrong on this. ❤💛💚💙💜
So world, I just wanna say thanks for all the love and pepp I have gotten since I shared this (☝) tweet yesterday. You are amazing!
Damn you twitter, I just missed my subway stop because of you!!
I looove this show and Bradley is one of my favs! Tonight I get to watch a new episode 😊🌟 https://t.co/JlFWxEF0NP
@gerginyus I have some where between 80-100 plants. But some die, especially now when it is getting darker.
Look, another pretty plant!! (I really need to go to sleep, seriously...) https://t.co/b3ziWlUulr
Makes all the sense! (Yes America we are looking at you, plz gun control now damnit.) https://t.co/9rkhrZ1CAQ
When I can't sleep (which is more or less every night) I usually binge watch Sims or Cities Skylines videos by @JamesTurnerYT.
(This sleeping business is going, as usual, really crappy.)
*pizza rolls, sushi rolls, cinnamon rolls, belly rolls. I love 'em all! https://t.co/dMM05k3QsM
Before I go off to sleep I leave you with these words of wisdome. Embroidered by my sister. https://t.co/WGhelwXeAv
Wow world, this has been one intense day. I am curious how I will do tomorrow when I actually have to work some...
@Eliminare well, Harry Potter is always in the top. I also love YA books and dystopian novels. Handmaid's Tale is a recent favourite!
@sassybasschick I love coming up with derby names, do you want it to be geeky/nerdy? Any specific fandom?
@sassybasschick actually BitterHittan is my derby name. Just considered a lot on the way there. ^^
@steve_gunnell actually my gf plays for BSTRDs and I for C-stars. I have a game on wednesday!
Would love for me and my life not to be a political question. But alas... https://t.co/rnSYHHgfrg

For those of you who did not get it this is a tattoo with a Harry Potter reference. https://t.co/WBS7wA7Wbz
It is truly hard to computer with the wittyness of jokes such as "Harry Potter is not a sport", cut me some slack will ya? @StJonkan
@L1veLeech hahaha, well in roller derby we block our opponents. Muteing does not do that much difference on the track.
Fun facts: have considered the following derby names "Blocking is Futile", "Q" and "We Are Borg". And 7 or 79 as my player number.
@simsod I have lost count of the times I have rewatched Voyager... But agree, don't always love Neelix.
Wow you guys really like that Picard person. Who could have guessed...? Unfortunately for you my poll is showing good numbers for Janeway.
Super important question no.2: which Star Trek captain is the best?
So guys, SUPER IMPORTANT QUESTION THINGY: Have y'all seen Star Trek Discovery? 😎🖖💃
@janewilkinson59 genious! Browsing people's book shelves are the first thing I do when I visit someone.
When I don't sparkle, do derby or talk to my plants I am the Secretary General at Hard of Hearing Young People Sweden (@uh_se ).
Don't I have a job to go to you wonder? I do but since I worked the entire weekend today is my off day. https://t.co/3Tdtd2l8dO
I do how ever have both a girl friend and a six yo kid. They are cuddly as cats and almost as cute! https://t.co/sXdC8qp9Ru
Relevant question! The surprising answer is that I have no cats, actually. https://t.co/6v3MBB6wPQ
My plan for today is to vaccuum and catch up on doing dishes. Thus far this tweeting bizniz gets 10/10 for distracting me.
People usually think this. Truth is I don't. I just have the strategy to choose easy plants that does not die on me. https://t.co/qMJ5ST23uz
FYI my plant strategy: when the windows and walls got crowded: start using the ceiling. And the lamp. https://t.co/IHdbEhZ9SM
@missgaijin TY! Though that is actually a mango (they look very alike), but I have an avocado plant just outside of the picture.
First order of business today is to water the plants. This might take a while since I have almost a hundred plants… https://t.co/eGB50dQGtH
