Name and Twitter handle: Rachel Thexton @rthexton
Occupation: Public relations gal with Dunn PR
A notable moment on Twitter? Every time I connect with someone new, I am thrilled. Twitter is also the first place I go after a bad Canucks call to see who has the funniest jab at the refs.
Your best Tweet: I tweeted throughout my solo US road trip and those were some unique tweets about Mississippi catfish, civil rights, Texas BBQ and New Orleans hospitality.
What did you want to be growing up? A marine biologist. I was the dorky kid who collected whale and dolphin figurines. I’m slightly afraid of water and can’t do math or science so that didn’t work out.
If you could have dinner with 1 person (live or dead) who would it be? Betty White. I’m so impressed by her intelligence, humour and devotion to animal welfare.
Your claim to fame: Animal loving, travel obsessed, late night reading, media junky. I also did the fastest beer bong pull in university. It was cool at the time.
Do you know of a hidden gem in our city? 32 Books in Edgemont Village is a fabulous independent bookshop and Little Spa on Hornby has the best facials in the world.
If you were a superhero, who would you be and why? She-Ra-Princess of Power. She is incredibly strong and has nice thick hair.
If you were a vegetable, what would you be and why? A salad-fresh, local, a total mixed bag.
Recommend a fellow Twitterer that deserves some recognition? @kclaveria posts some great social media related tweets…this got Dunn PR’s attention and he now works with us as an intern. I also love Knorr’s @SaltysLife– what a brilliant way to create buzz for their brand. I love that little salt shaker!
Describe yourself in 3 words: Compassionate, independent, curious.
