The Good Place writer-producer known for tweeting "Today was the day Donald trump finally became president" nearly every day of the Trump presidency stopped tweeting on June 17 after apologizing for past offensive tweets mocking Jews, gays, Asian-Americans and people with disabilities. In a series of tweets this morning, Amram wrote: "I took the last few months off to really reflect and further educate myself on concrete steps I could take, while also reading and internalizing as many comments as I could. As I slowly return to twitter, my focus is to use this platform to bring awareness and support to those doing all types of amazing work on race, LGBTQ, and disability issues. I’ve financially committed myself to a number of foundations and charities that I look forward to amplifying on this platform. And I’m looking forward to sharing my own efforts within the entertainment industry to invoke change, as things further cement in the coming weeks. Thank you for reading this far! I have always wanted to help people. I have never wanted to hurt people. And I hope I can use my platform to tip the scales towards net positivity."
