It takes some research, a prepared word document and an unwavering attention span to live-tweet the state senate session in Albany.
But that’s all in a day’s work for Tom Reale, the director of new media for the senate and the man behind @NYSenate.
He joined Poozer Politics to talk about the mission of the senate’s Twitter account, the challenges of responding to people on social media, and the evolution of his job (Spoiler: emojis!).
Reale also had his knowledge of Twitter handles tested and shed light on his (not so) secret life with RPI hockey, which actually helped prepare him for his current job.
