During last week’s cover story about the triumphant return of her series Roseanne this spring, Roseanne Barr told Adweek that she was going to try a new social media approach when it comes to her frequently controversial Twitter feed: “I’m going to just try to talk about what I’m for, rather than what I’m against.”
