In the world of Twitter there are millions of reasons to follow someone's tweets, so to speak. Some people are informative, some preach the politics you like and some are just outright entertaining. Mike Monteiro is many of these things to many people and his Mike Underscore FTW twitter account's twenty thousand followers agree.

Monteiro is an artist and public speaker whose politically charged humor was once even mistaken as being behind the infamous British Petroleum prank public relations account on Twitter. He spoke with New America Now Host Shirin Sadeghi about Twitter notoriety and life as a Portuguese-American Immigrant.

New America Now is the radio program of New America Media. The program is hosted by
