Is it easier when you know your co-host so well?

Lori:We became fast friends at work (ski "work" trip!, marry her brother) so after 20 yrs of amazing friendship we're sister's!

You and Julia cover a lot of celebrity gossip, fashion and award show news. Has the quality of the shows dropped to you?

Twitterviews generally last about an hour and consist of 10-15 questions. With only 140 characters per tweet, guests may use anywhere from one to five tweets to answer, and are encouraged to look up key Twitter handles before their interview, that are relevant to their lives, and then incorporate in their answers. Using the #MNMOtv hashtag in every question and response is important so that the public can easily follow the interview live.


In the “Search” or “# Discover” box of Twitter, type in #MNMOtv and then hit enter. A list of tweets using this hashtag will be displayed. Next to tweets there will be a highlighted tab that says “top” or “all.” Click “all.” This will then create a seamless stream that will display the Tweets in the correct order as they are posted.
