The Shorty Interview with Reid Gower

What are some big Twitter faux pas?

Jumping on tragic news hashtags for the sake of self-promotion.

What inspires you to tweet?

Twitter. The power to instantly propagate memes is something of a cultural phenomenon and I can't watch it unfold from the sidelines.

Why should people follow you?

I've got personality, yo.

What will the world be like 10 years from now?

Surprising. Predicting 9/11, arab spring, a black president, bank bailouts, #OWS, and the rise of social media would've been outrageous.

Whilst studying philosophy I grew tired of the intellectual masturbation and thought of ways to make real changes for our planet. One obvious solution is to have a motivated, or at least informed public. So for the last year, I've used humanity's greatest tool for spreading information - media - to propagate messages that promote scientific literacy and a planetary perspective.
