The Shorty Interview with Sesame Street

What are six things you could never do without?

How about one: hope. Sesame Workshop – the nonprofit behind Sesame Street and a whole lot more – is dedicated toward making a meaningful difference in the lives of children worldwide by addressing their critical developmental needs. We strive to give children a better life than they would have had otherwise.

Why'd you start tweeting?

To celebrate our 40th anniversary!

What will the world be like 10 years from now?

Here’s a prediction: Sesame Street will be celebrating its 50th (wow!) anniversary.

What inspires you to tweet?
