What was your first job as a journalist?

I worked as an intern at the Fiji Sun. First paid job was as a proofreader for the Sunday Observer in New Delhi, India.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes, I learned to type on a typewriter when I was 11. My mom thought it was a handy skill to acquire and she was right!

Who's your favorite fictional journalist?

Kermit the Frog.

Six Ways Journalists Can Use Twitter Better — DNAinfo Contributing Editor For several months now, I have been thinking about how journalists can use Twitter in smarter ways. Here's a compilation of ideas - many of them found, of course, on Twitter itself. GET TO KNOW TWITTER BETTER: Too many journalists still don't understand Twitter.

Tips from a social media one-night stand — Some thoughts and advice from the latest in a series of advanced social media workshops around the country. Some say the classes have a memorable name.

Four lessons from a single successful tweet — What I learned from a single tweet about Facebook's 1 billion users announcement One of the things I try to do on this blog is share what I learn about the fast-changing, confusing world of Twitter.

#LondonNotNYC - through @Sree's iPhone — When I visited London in Sept-Oct 2014, I posted photos that I described thus: Signs you're in London, not NYC.

TV SPORTS: Kevin Negandhi, Adnan Virk anchor "SportsCenter" episode — Earlier tonight, after a day of work and teaching, I sat down with my dinner to watch the 10 p.m. ESPN "SportsCenter" (which was on ESPNews because of college football). It was a major sports day: playoff baseball featuring Yankees v. Twins and Giants vs.

@Sree's London Social Media One-Night Stand on Tue, Sep 30 @ 5:30pm. #sreeldn — Tue, Sep 30 @ 5:30pm at Business & IP Centre The British Library | Free social media workshop in London hosted by @Sree, chief digital officer of @MetMuseum. Hosted by @BIPC @britishlibrary. #sreeldn

ESSAY: Hari Sreenivasan on becoming an American citizen — Hari Sreenivasan, of the CBS News Dallas bureau, and annual co-host of the SAJA Convention's gala dinner, is someone I have known for more than a decade. We aren't related, but get confused for brothers all the time.

#MetApp Launch & First Days — On Sept 2, 2014, The Metropolitan Museum of Art launched its flagship iOS app (Android access coming in 2015) with an Interpol concert in the Temple of Dendur. Congrats to @LoicTallon, @LizFilardi and the entire, cross-departmental team that worked on the app. Comments/updates:

The Met's Updated Image Use Policy — "One of the many lessons I've learned in my first 10 months on the job at the Met is how much attention is paid to everything we do here. Having worked at Columbia Journalism School for two decades, I am familiar with the amount of interest journalists take in the activities of a major institution (especially when most alumni are journalists themselves).

A Busy Week for @metmuseum — "It's been a memorable couple of Mondays for the Met's social media efforts." As Online Community Manager Taylor Newby wrote in a Digital Underground post last month, the Met's Instagram feed was nominated for a Webby Award in the Social: Arts & Culture category.
