Have you met Nikita?

3 April, 2009, by Heidi, category Twitter

I know I haven’t introduced you to a Hatchling in eons. Sorry. I had 2 potential hatchlings that let me down and there’s also the small matter of my laziness and supreme sloth that got in the way.

But I have one for you now and she’s worth the wait! From the dark & sinister world of international espionage, I bring you Nikita, code-name: Starfish.


Real name (or 00 number if you work for MI6):
Nikita Ramkissoon (I’d like to have been a 00 but my boobs got in the way)

Where do you live? (Don’t worry, we won’t tell Goldfinger, Mr Big or any of the other maniacal villains who are after you):

Blog/website URL:

Tell us a bit about yourself. Include something that we don’t know, like how do you like your martini or do you have any amazing gadgets that are disguised as pens?
I am a silly starfish. I read, write, occasionally work and I am unhealthily obsessed with the band Muse. I like rock music, am nocturnal, I wanted to be a tourist when I grew up but then decided to be a journalist instead. I love Durban, the sea and The Beatles. My life revolves around the people I love, animals and especially my two labradors, Tim and Rani. I collect soundtracks, 1st editions, piano sheet music, barcodes and tins.

When & how did you get interested in the Social Media community in South Africa (Facebook doesnt count)?
When I was born?

What do you do when you are not tweeting/blogging (or introducing yourself surname first)?
I write.

What is the one thing in your life you simply cannot live without?
My family, puppies, friends and ipod – in that order.

In 20 words or less, why should people follow you on Twitter/read your blog?
Because I am kick ass. Don’t need 20 words to say that 🙂

If you want to know more about Nikita, just follow her on Twitter. I’d tell you more but then I’d have to kill you. 😉

P.S. If you have recently introduced anyone to the twitterverse or blogosphere and want them to be a Hatchling, email me.
