The Shorty Interview with Dr Rachael Dunlop

What are some big Twitter faux pas?

Sending private messages public! Especially bad when you do it from text, then realise, but are not near a computer to rectify. FAIL.

What's your best tweet?

it's always the last one right? I was pretty pleased with my reference to woo-ers as "Big-Homeo hugging antivaxers".

Why should we vote for you?

You should vote for me because (unlike some of my competitors) I am not setting up sock puppets to get extra votes. Kinda cheating right?

Why'd you start tweeting?

I started tweeting 'cause it's more interesting and frequent than emails. Keeps me company on late nights.
