Threading the needle: Best #StarWars and #SWEU tweets for April 22-28

@LeeGallows: Why has no one started up a Star Wars themed tattoo shop called "Tattooine" yet?

This week, we pondered the essential questions of Star Wars and learned about hugging from Carrie Fisher. Also, someone named ‘Barkevious Mingo’ exists. No, seriously!
