@HootoffDPresses, Hoot for short, is an average-looking tweep, usually spotted interviewing the most interesting-looking person in any given room. His head-mounted phone has a square card labelled "PREZ" sticking clearly out of it, and he'll be taking down notes, digital and handwritten, with any limbs not needed to keep himself upright.
@HootoffDPresses is a journalist with particular interest in criminal organizations. @HootoffDPresses claims to know all there is to know about the criminal mind - in reality, he knows everything about depictions of them in media. He's watched (or at least read the summaries of) such a staggering number of stories, shows, and documentaries that he ends up surprisingly more knowledgeable about criminal behavior than most.
@HootoffDPresses is constantly looking to be first on the scene to a hot scoop, and is thus constantly on the move and interviewing persons of interest. While friendly enough to anyone willing to share their story, he quickly loses interest in peaceful locales and goes to where trouble needs the light of journalistic integrity shone upon it. On at least one occasion he's solved a decades-old crime and left before anyone could thank him.
Unusually for a Tweep, @HootoffDPresses is decent at listening instead of talking, although he'll ask no shortage of questions. Given the opportunity though, he loves explaining his deductions to interested listeners. His talk relies a lot on references to shows he's watched, or shows he's read online discussions about. Because of this and his habit of thinking+reviewing evidence aloud, understanding the thrust of his arguments can be a challenge.
@HootoffDPresses enjoyed an average Tweep's youth as an avid follower of Snapped Tweep journalists, and rabid consumer of media relating to law and order. When a Fortuna-bound ship @HootoffDPresses was hired onto was hijacked by traitorous crew members, the Tweep Snapped and aided the remaining crew in eliminating the traitors by advising the ship's first mate Andromeda, an Apollo v17.
Following this incident @HootoffDPresses decided to "venchur 4th + mak da newz com 2 me!!!" and used his newfound small fame to springboard his career in investigative journalism. He is notorious for interviewing and investigating Fortuna-bound crews, and making sure any of their misdeeds in lawless deep space are given the necessary public attention.
Liveblogger: @HootoffDPresses keeps a near-constant running online commentary of all the people they meet and the happenings they run into. If Hoot sees something he considers important for the public to know, his readership will be quick to hear about it.
• @HootoffDPresses will seek out scandal and hidden underbellies of any location he visits, but is most often spotted around refuelling stations and waypoints near Fortuna herself, citing an "apreshabl public intrst in da diseminashn of ne criminl hapenins/stylins w/ da ilk dat gos tryna nab wshs from a mythikl plan@, u fl me?"
• @HootoffDPresses has received multiple complaints from fans of @Hoot, a Strix fashion blogger. They claim the journalist is infringing on @Hoot's brand by not being more firm in telling his fans to use his proper name.
• A @HootoffDPresses fanblog tracks which liveblog and review blogs he follows for plot summaries+analysis, what shows and which episodes of which he's definitely watched first-hand, and the television appearances he's made personally reporting live and giving his opinions.
• The earliest entry in the last category is "Get Mooned - Pilot Episode."
