Key Club president and senior Kern Vohra updates Key Club members through Twitter


Facebook or Twitter? Why?
(Twitter), definitely, for updating statuses. But as a whole, I’d say I use Facebook more just because a lot more people are on it. And it’s a lot more mainstream and useful for contacting people.

Why did you start the Key Club Twitter ?
This is something we instituted this year to send quick updates to people, and it’s been relatively useful, but a lot of our stuff still has to go through email and Facebook because it won’t fit into 140 characters.

What do you like about Twitter?
Definitely the fact that it’s really quick to update  something. It’s immediately there just because a lot of people send their tweets to their phone.

What do you dislike about Twitter?
The big disadvantage I feel is that, since you only have around 140 characters, you can’t say what you want to say all the time, because it really restricts you there.

Do you use Twitter more often on a mobile device or on a computer?
I use a little of both. It kind of depends on what I’m doing. If I’m at home at my desk, I’ll probably be using my computer just because it’ll be easier to access. If I’m on the go, I’ll think of something I want to say and just text it in.

Why did you decide to join Twitter?
At first I just wanted to see what all the hype was about because I heard so many good things, but I also heard a lot of people kind of denouncing it as something stupid and unnecessary.

When did you first start tweeting?
I first made a Twitter beginning of junior year-ish, but I didn’t really use it until around second semester junior year.
