Have you ever used a typewriter?

I have, and still love the vintage ones from before my time (albeit for inspiration rather than practicality.)

What's the funniest news-related #hashtag you've seen?

Although I've never attended it, I love the #nerdprom tag.

How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?

I don't write articles from press releases, however I do consider introductions to relevant sources for future articles.
