The Shorty Interview with YBCA

Why should we vote for you?

Because you love seeing museums have fun on Twitter :)

Ever get called out for tweeting too much?

Nope, but it doesn't surprise us when we get unfollows during livetweets.

What are some big Twitter faux pas?

Not knowing how and why to use the ".@" formulation for a public reply.

How do you pronounce GIF?

Like it's a GIFT to the world.
