On April 3, 2013, at 4:30 PM, Will Roane (@willroane), Social Media Coordinator for Oberlin Conservatory (@OberlinCon), interviewed four Obies — two current students, two alumni — about the future of music. Were all participants in the same room? Nope. This interview took place entirely on Twitter.
