This is kick-off week for @Iam_Bremen! Say “Moin!” to @jplusgo (Philipp) and read his introduction:
Who are you and what are you doing in Bremen?
Moin! My name is Philipp, I’m 26 years old and I’m a student of Media and Communication Sciences at Bremen University. I’m working on my master thesis, which is about “Twitter and Television”. If I’m not doing this nor am working as student assistant there’s always someplace to enjoy life – hang out with my friends, have a drink and BBQ, dance, meet up to watch a movie or a new episode of Doctor Who or Sherlock. I do like stumbling upon good music and videos! Sometimes I even try to play the guitar- but that’s hard work…
What’s your Twitter account?
Are you originally from Bremen? If not, what’s your story?
I’m originally from around Wolfenbüttel (Lower Saxony), received my bachelor’s degree in Siegen (North Rine-Westphalia) and then decided to move back north and continue my studies in Bremen.
What do you like most about Bremen?
The fact that there’s always some parc around the corner and the Weser is never far away. I’m living pretty close to the city centre. Starting here, almost anything is close enough to take a walk, go by bike or take my favourite public transport, the tram.
What’s your favourite place in Bremen?
The Osterdeich! That’s where the Breminale takes place each year and from where you’ve got a good view on the Badeinselregatta. As soon as the sun’s out there’s always people around, playing some sports, listening to music and have a drink. It’s also where one of the flea markets ends.
What’s your top 5 list of things to do in Bremen?
First of all: Come here for the Breminale! It’s a lot of fun and good music. If you can’t, come to Bremen to enjoy the Osterdeichwiesen. Try a cold beer, called Haake Beck 12. You can sort of combine both by visiting the Schlachte. On your way, try the candy at the Bonbon Manufaktur. You should definitely spend a night in the Viertel district and party.
Who should be tweeting as @Iam_Bremen?
I do think @moritz89 would do a good job. He’s a good friend, always fun and always up to something. He’d introduce you to quite another perspective on Bremen life. Check out his profile! Maybe that’ll encourage him to tweet more often.
