The Shorty Interview
with Pitt Rivers Museum

What are six things you could never do without?
Cake, cake, cake, cake, our fab gallery attendants. Er, cake.
What feature should Twitter add?
Even shorter tiny URLs! With so many hashtags too, how on earth can we long-winded museum types fit anything into 140 characters?!
Why should we vote for you?
We aim to be the best university museum of anthropology and archaeology in the world. Twitter can help us meet that challenge.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
#thepittriversisnottheonewiththedinosaur
How long can you go without a tweet?
About a day. No point overloading followers with stuff. Rationed but worthwhile - like a lovely wodge of cake you try to make last the week.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That it's just for kids or bored reality stars sharing what they had for breakfast. It's an amazing tool for sharing all sorts of gold-dust.
How do you use social media to motivate yourself or others to live a healthier life?
Encouraging participation in arts, heritage & culture. Offering both contemplative & social experiences, museums can contribute to well-being
How has social media helped bring your family closer together and #keepgoodgoing?
An awareness that people not only love the Museum but also what goes on behind the scenes - the staff & volunteers at the heart of it all.
