Have you ever used a typewriter?

Absolutely. That 7th grade typing class my mom insisted I take is paying off dividends today. Thanks, Mom!

How is social media changing news?

It's faster by far. That's not always a good thing so we must remember to slow down to balance accuracy with speed.

What's your favorite social network?

Twitter. Hands down.
