What was your first job as a journalist?

In my first internship for a French local newspaper I wrote about a flower that re-flourished in September. Yes.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes, typing letters for my great-aunt on it. Being used to computers, it drove me nuts and revealed how bad I actually am at typo-less-typing

How is social media changing news?

Especially Twitter is a game changer. Has yet again increased the speed of news. Great tip-off service.
