Anderson Cooper: Teach Me Twitter!
Silver Fox Anderson Cooper hosts CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360° and reports for 60 Minutes. He’s also CNN’s Mr. New Year’s Eve. Here are some highlights from the 41-year-old’s latest interview with LA Times:
On not having a personal Twitter: “I think I do have a Twitter feed! I’m not as Twitter-friendly as [CNN anchor/correspondent] Rick Sanchez. He seems to be tweeting and twittering. I’m hoping he’ll give me a lesson on it someday” (See: Rick Sanchez’s Twitter and Anderon Cooper 360′s Twitter)
On not starting his own website: “I’m not that computer-savvy. And, uh, I dunno! I like the immediacy of television. I like going to a frontline, I like going to a story. I like the immediacy and impact of it. There’s a real global impact with CNN… It’s not really about mass distribution. It’s more about just telling stories that affect people’s lives. . . . There’s a lot of opportunities at CNN that if I had a little website somewhere I don’t think I could take part in.”
