Sanaa told us, in this exclusive interview, that she has visited! “It’s fascinating to see how the world has been bit by the tweeting bug. It’s so cool to see what tweeters people are loving and a great place to find new people to follow”.

How and when did you start on Twitter and how many hours a day do you devote to this network?

I started on Twitter a couple of years ago and it took me a while to get used to it. I think I tweeted for a couple of months and the completely stopped for six months and then started up again. I'm a very private person so I had to figure out how I could tweet and maintain that.

What do you share on Twitter?

I tend to re-tweet messages that touch me or tweet things related to work. I'm probably a pretty boring tweeter. But that's the only way I'm comfortable.

We have seen that you interact a lot with your fans on Twitter. Do you enjoy it?

The fans are the best part of Twitter. They are constantly putting a smile on my face. I'm very appreciative of the continual love and support.

You don’t follow to much people on Twitter, so what is your criteria to follow on Twitter? We’d love to hear from you two or three tweeters recommendations.

I don't have a criteria for who I follow. I should probably follow more people. Lately I've been having fun with astrology. @astrologyzone is a good one if you're in to that. And I love @greatestquotes. They always have inspirational quotes that I love.
