Roll Call is continuing Twitter Q-and-A sessions. In this edition, we talked with brand-new Heard on the Hill reporter Neda Semnani.
Neda was the deputy editor for BillTrack, CQ Roll Call’s legislative tracking product, for two years before diving into a whole new gossipy world.
Before falling in love with all things Congressional, Neda consulted for the World Bank, managed programs for nongovernmental organizations in the Middle East and later managed a nonprofit in New York City.
Neda has started a new Twitter feature she calls #missedonthehill and has been stellar leading HOH since she came on board earlier this month.

Because it was on Twitter, of course, her answers were kept to under 140 characters. A transcript follows.
Following the speeches from elected officials, the crowd stands at long tables as they dig into BBQ, brunswick stew, cadillac rice at the Law Enforcement Cookout at Wayne Dasher's pond house in Glennville, Ga., on Thursday, April 17, 2014.
