Now with COVID-19 closures in effect, organizations are leveraging these personalities to build a larger following and engage their audience virtually. We’re sitting down with Casey Phillips, the brains and personality behind Miguel Wattson, the Tennessee Aquarium’s electric eel whose tweets – and 40.4K followers! – are triggered by his own jolts of electricity.
