  7. 7. “ I know social media isn't traditionally a &quot;platform&quot;, but I think that it is fast becoming one. I know people think that Twitter is just a matter of 140 characters, but used well it is a very powerful tool and I've been building some great connections through it...So in terms of skills, well, I'm a radio producer and journalist - and I've used those skills on-air and online to produce content, but I'm also a communicator, and that is the main skill I've been using in social media. It's about the connections, the trust, the engagement with people.” @RadioKate
