One of the more magical things about Twitter is that it makes it possible for all types of people to talk to each other from miles apart, both physically and ideologically — like, say, famous model Chrissy Teigen and a hate-mongering "alt-right" white nationalist Richard Spencer.

On Monday, he tweeted out a seemingly cryptic reference to the punch heard round the world, saying, "I am not what happened to me. I am what I choose to become."
