Questlove loves his social media. If you follow him on Twitter (@questlove) you know he tweets about everything from politics to personal photos of weddings in the woods. Quest appeared to be naturally chatty after The Roots‘ ACL performance when he revealed Jay-Z’s theory on success. He also told us that he live tweets during his shows. Yes, while playing the drums. “I’m a social network prince.”
“I tweet from the stage…I often tweet while drumming,” he continued. That’s one multitasking, skilled drummer. Does Quest prefer Facebook or Twitter? He uses them both. “My Facebook is like my personal Facebook. I don’t like the fan page. I got a regular Facebook, and that’s what my regular family and my real friends, people I know in real life [are on].” We were certain deleting personal Facebook pages or any traces of the celebs “real life” was the first requirement of fame. Not for Quest. He’s just like us. Writing on people’s walls, updating statuses, pretending to read his news feed while really only being interested in the pictures.
