    Please hear me out.

    Hi my name is Ashley Lawson and I am a journalism student at
    the University of Montana. I am in a reporting class that requires me to post a
    blog. I am doing a story on the Molasses spill in Hawaii. I have to use social
    media to find sources for my story. I found you on Twitter and I messaged you but you didn’t reply. I just assumed that there are a lot of people messaging you. I researched Marine biology, biology and a
    bunch of other stuff and you popped up. Your job and expertise sounded
    interesting. I need an expert for the story anyways. I was wondering if I could interview you
    about that topic. If not could you send me to someone who will be willing to talk?
    They have to be an expert on the subject. You can reach me here or call me at
    406-274-0773 or email me ashley.lawson@umontana.edu or twitter @AshRoseLawson so we can set up an interview. Let me know by Tuesday.

    Sorry for this being so long and if I gave you the creeps.

    Thank you for your time,
