Rashida Jones has never tweeted. Ever.
Bravo Host Andy Cohen and founder of Mashable Pete Cashmore and West Coast Editor of Vanity Fair Krista Smith team up to explore the implications of a life on Twitter. Will Rashida join in?
In an insightful (at moments hilarious) banter, the group explores the medium. The pros and cons, benefits and dangers, and other implications of entering into the social, public arena.
Is it an in invasion of privacy? Or a way to connect for popularity? Do you have a greater responsibility? Is the public more supportive or more critical and brash in their anonymity? What are the rules? Is there ettiquette? Too often? Too few? Who do you follow?
At the surface, it may seem like a mere 140 characters. But when we look deeper, we reveal the complexity.
In the end, there are no rules, it's about authenticity and being yourself.
Cohen, Cashmore and Smith, all active on Twitter, host a balanced discussion but continue to lean harder and harder on Rashida, with a slight, friendly touch of peer pressure.
So will Rashida tweet for the very first time?
Her very first tweet:
@iamrashidajones: Oh snap, I just joined Twitter! Got convinced by my friends here at #Newfront
And the crowd goes wild.
