The CRASH marketing manager on iPhone bereavement, habas fritas, and aspiring to own a Mac

Emma Brophy

What is your favourite website?

Sad as it sounds I love Hootsuite and Google Analytics. I’m a statistics junkie.

What is your worst digital habit?

Playing games on my Kindle Fire when I know I should really be reading one of the hundred books I keep meaning to read.

iPhone/Blackberry/Android. Which side are you on?

I had my IPhone stolen recently. I felt bereaved but even worse I had to revert to my old Blackberry – it’s a poor substitute.

Are you into social networking?

Love Twitter for breaking news but don’t like Facebook, it makes me feel like a lonely loafer if everyone else’s posts are to be believed!

If you are on Twitter, who do you recommend to follow? 

@HomelessLink for reliable news and comment from homelessness charity sector. I also enjoy @CommentIsFree from The Guardian.

What is your favourite app?

The Street View App, it’s like having your own personal guide to the world.

What is your preferred means of communication?

I use email for speed but for me nothing beats a face to face meeting.

What did you last buy online?

Habas fritas from Olives et Al they’re my latest food obsession

PC or Mac?

PC although I do aspire to be a Mac owner

Guilty pleasures: Most played tunes from iTunes/Spotify?

Depends on my mood but favourites include Fleetwood Mac, Barry White, Cranberries and Neil Young
