TV3 asked me to join The Nation’s tweet panel with Generation Zero co-founder Kirk Serpes this morning.
It was an interesting exercise.
Good interviewers listen to what interviewees say and base their next question on what they hear. I tried to do that with my tweets but kept missing the next point as I was tweeting on the last and trying to keep up with other tweets coming in.
Lisa Owen interviewed Fonterra chief executive Theo Spierings talking about the farm gate milk price announcement today. This was followed by reporter Torben Akel discussing governments appointing ex-MPs to government boards and an interview with American journalist Ben Taub who’s been writing about why teenagers’ journeys to jihad.
The studio panelists were Heather du Plessis-Allan, Jacqueline Rowarth and Bernard Hickey.
Having Heather on the panel was very good marketing for Story which she’ll be co-hosting with Duncan Garner. It starts this Monday.
