Interview with Lucy
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
I really like the whole #corpgov and #csr hashtags.
Twitter or Facebook?
I like them both for different things, but I am more active on Twitter. I've also grown to like LinkedIn for sharing/conversation too.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That it is frivolous. It is an extraordinary place for the exchange of ideas.
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
There are too many to count! I've met a whole world of people interested in the same things that I may not have met otherwise.
