The Shorty Interview with Lauri Stevens

How do you use Twitter in your professional life?

I work exclusively w/ law enforcement 2 help them use Twitter 2 communicate w/ citizens, investigate and solve crime.

Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?

My career path has changed drastically b/c of Twitter. I left a 9-5 six months ago to work with LE fulltime. Working well so far!

Why'd you start tweeting?

I saw the power for LE and knew I couldn't get them to do without showing a good example. So I started tweeting LE relevant SM info.

140 characters of advice for a new user?

Get going, it makes more sense the more you use it. But never tweet anything of which Grandma wouldn't approve.
