Note: Placed in General due to the overlap between topics and since it's more for informational/cultural/research purposes.

I was doing research to find out if there are Aspie "Social Media" (YouTube/Twitter/etc.) or "Gaming" groups out there. It's somewhat difficult to track down who's who on a Google search without having some sort of insight.

It would be informative to see online groups, outside of the major pro-Neurodiversity social media sites (WP, AFF, etc.), that have adopted "Aspie" cultural references.

I'm not sure where to even start. It could be a good outreach tool.

I had to edit more than a few spelling and grammar issues in my OP. I'm not sure what happened there.
