The Shorty Interview with Betty Dravis

What is the weirdest or most inappropriate place you've ever made a social media post from?

In Doctor's office immediately following thyroid biopsy. (Results were positive, praise God.)

Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?

Clint Eastwood, my idol! Sure, there are a few Clints here, but none are the official REAL Living Legend that I met back in the day.

In what ways do you waste the most time on social media?

By just posting off the top of my head without having a planned strategy of what works and what doesn't. Help!

Twitter or Facebook?

I love both sites and spend time daily on both. However, I must be truthful and admit I do go on FaceBook more. I find it more user friendly.
