President John Kelly took time out of his day to answer questions under the hashtag #KellyConvo. Questions and answers ranged from informative to outright ludicrous.

The Twitter session lasted from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, with Kelly answering about 20 questions, starting with a question about the indoor athletics facility.

After coming out firing, the President dialed it back. Awkward puns and tongue-in-cheek comments followed.  

A few important questions were answered regarding how campuses are communicating with each other, but the answers were broad and didn’t provide any solutions.

Kelly let everyone know his favorite genre of movie was anything James Bond, and he would be showing up on Halloween dressed as a big owl. He ended his question and answer with a live Periscope feed.

As active as he was on Twitter Thursday evening, Kelly failed to answer several questions. He dodged inquiries on all of the following:
