Twitter Spotlight: Joanne Ross

Joanne is one of the nicest people I’ve never met. If you’re on Twitter, you know what I mean. Twitter friends are real.

Joanne, a lover of corgis and the Detroit Pistons, and I first connected thanks to NBA Twitter, but now she feels like a real life buddy.

One day soon, I hope, we’ll get to meet. For now, we’ll make do with a Twitter Spotlight.

OneChicklette: Five tangible things you can’t live without

@JoannePistonFan: My iPhone, lip balm, DVR, coffeemaker, and does my dog count as a thing? It feels bizarre calling my dog a thing, so I will add my Pistons hat.

Twitter Spotlight: Rod Benson

Who is Rod Benson aka @boomtho? Only the most popular pro basketball player in Korea. And an entrepreneur, graphic designer and writer too. Remember when I told you about Rod’s hilarious blog?

The dude is smart – he graduated from Berkeley. A 2012 Cal alumni publication article about Rod quoted one of his friends thusly:

“He was kind of a nerd,” says Renee Pesiri ‘07, a Berkeley law student who became friends with Benson during freshman year. “He taught me the Dewey decimal system.”

Too much Rod Benson? Never.

Twitter Spotlight: Matt Feige

Today you get to spend some virtual time with the tweeter who has become like my little brother, @mfeige.

We connected on Twitter talking about basketball but Matt is fun to tweet with about so many topics. His love for and knowledge of all things Disney is encyclopedic. Even though he lives on the West Coast and I’m on the East, we have been able to hang out in person several times.

Get to know Matt. I adore him (his recent haircut is great too)!

OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest

@mfeige: Curious, fun-loving, adventurous and on a diet (because I need to lose some weight)

OneChicklette: Your chief characteristic (one word)

OneChicklette: What you appreciate most in your friends

@mfeige: Honesty, loyalty, staying up late, similar interests

OneChicklette: Your idea of happiness

@mfeige: A Los Angeles sunset, time with family, a night out

OneChicklette: Your idea of misery

@mfeige: Well once I was on Pirates of the Caribbean at Walt Disney World between people taking flash pictures in the front and a conversation about whether the film or the ride came first in the back. (The film is about 10 years old, the ride is about 40.)

Also Christopher Nolan films.

OneChicklette: Your favorite fictional character

@mfeige: Jay Gatsby/Don Draper

OneChicklette: Your favorite thing to eat, and also to drink

@mfeige: @divinemadness @imbrogliono @NDEddieMac @EPCOTCitizen

OneChicklette: A question I should ask future participants

@mfeige: Best Moment on Twitter?

OneChicklette: Random shout out (can be a person, a web site, a favorite product or brand…anything)

@mfeige: I’m gonna shout out Frank Ocean, because I’m a little obsessed.

Twitter Spotlight: Rey Moralde

If you follow @TheNoLookPass (aka Rey aka Rey-Rey), you get what you expect. Sort of.

While there’s lots of basketball given that Rey is a basketball blogger, you might also find him live-tweeting Twilight or musing on his love for the Spice Girls or any number of other subjects.

Rey, you’re a versatile man!

Here we go…

OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest

@TheNoLookPass: Sense of humor. I love laughing and I love to make people laugh (even though I’m probably one of the corniest guys you’ll ever know). I want her to be easygoing. Not too much of a partier but knows how to do it. And I hope she’s able to put up with me. Basically, the girl next door.

Oh, duh. She has to be hot, too. What can I say? I’m shallow.

OneChicklette: Your chief characteristic (one word)

@TheNoLookPass: Friendly!

OneChicklette: What you appreciate most in your friends

@TheNoLookPass: Just the fact that they listen when I tend to ramble on and on.

OneChicklette: Your idea of happiness

@TheNoLookPass: Being with people that are having a great time on whatever we’re doing. We could be on the dinner table laughing about our stupid jokes about pop music, doing karaoke, or sitting around just exchanging stories.

OneChicklette: Your idea of misery

@TheNoLookPass: Sick and being alone.

Twitter spotlight: Holly MacKenzie

I have met incredible people through Twitter and I have decided I need to share them — lucky you! First up, the lovely and talented Holly MacKenzie aka @stackmack.
OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest
StackMack: Conversation, kindness and passion. If there can’t be some serious word play, I lose interest quickly regardless of the other things they’re bringing to the table. It’s cliche to say, but seeing how they treat the people around them. From the way they talk about their friends, to how they interact with taxi drivers, servers and strangers on the street, kindness owns my soul. People who are passionate about what they do or are trying to do make me swoon. Whatever you love, chase it. I love those people. I also love forearms and calves. Weird, I know.
