Who are your favorite people to follow on Twitter?
Sports athletes and sportscasters. Some of them include Pau Gasol, Rafael Nadal, Floyd Mayweather, Pablo Sandoval, Venus Williams and Chicharito.
How has Twitter changed the way you prepare for your hosting duties on Nacion ESPN?
I normally check Twitter before, during and after we tape Nacion ESPN. Twitter is a tool that helps me be informed of everything that is happening at the moment and, also, a good way to get to know the personality of an athlete.
If you could take over anyone’s Twitter account for a day, who would it be and why?
I would take over the accounts of people who are trying to help the world become a better place, where tolerance is the motor of life and where opinions are respected, someone like Johan Santana.
What has been your favorite Twitter interaction?
My favorite Twitter interaction happens every day, it is getting feedback from my followers. I like to know what they think of my work.
