Interview with 501st
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
This might be a predictable answer, but surely "Uncle George" has a few things to tweet about.
Twitter or Facebook?
We may be an evil Empire, but we try not to discriminate when it comes to social media.
Why'd you start tweeting?
Since we are a member organization, Twitter (& Facebook) have become our sole methods for reaching out to the public.
What are six things you could never do without?
Star Wars. Our fans. The Internet. ABS plastic. The power of giving. Children's smiles.
