Coolest Twitter Moment or what is your favorite thing about Twitter?
Being followed by Jimmy Fallon is definitely very cool to me. Twitter sort of feels like throwing bottles into the ocean with messages inside and wondering who will read them. Or like being at a grand cocktail party, where you’ve selected the guests. There are entertaining conversations going on all around you. You can listen in, and you can choose to partake at any time. It’s such a brilliant way to collaborate, connect with people and share amazing ideas, links and recommendations. The sky’s the limit and I find that really exciting. I learn so much from the people I follow.
Your best Tweet:
It seems impossible to pick one. I love it when my tweets start a conversation.
If you were a superhero, who would you be and why?
Batgirl. When I was a little girl, watched re-runs of the old 1960s show with Adam West. I always dreamed of being the cool female caped crusader who fought crime with the boys.
Your favorite town in Vancouver, Gastown? Yaletown? Metrotown? Downtown?
Every area of Vancouver definitely has its charm, but lately I’ve been spending a lot of time in Gastown. There are so many fantastic spots to eat and drink, not to mention a growing number of cool boutiques. Yaletown is still my favorite neighbourhood for weekend brunch, with a necessary post-nosh stop at BeautyMark.
Something you do every day?
On a Friday night, you will be:_______________
I may be out in the city with friends for a delicious dinner and drinks, or at home wrapped in my snuggie watching a movie. Both options are equally possible, depending on the week.
Recommend a fellow Twitterer that deserves some recognition:
My friend @melwilliscroft is all kinds of awesome. Her tweets always make me smile. She shares a great mix of random thoughts and observations, interesting news links and smart Canucks commentary.
Describe yourself in 3 words:
I hope people would say that I am passionate, kind and funny.
