Twitter Account Rates Celebrities’ Skype Backgrounds, For Better Or Worse

You may have heard of Room Rater — the Twitter account that rates the room in the background of newsmakers’ and celebrities’ Skype interviews on TV.

The comic and sometimes biting reviews — on a scale of one to 10 — have included everyone from weatherman Al Roker to former presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren to public health expert Anthony Fauci.

The account was created by Washington D.C.’s Claude Taylor (@TrueFactsStated), along with his girlfriend Jessie Bahrey after they found themselves spending more time looking at the backgrounds than listening to the interviews. Taylor joins host Robin Young to talk about Room Rater’s success (over 195,000 followers) and the ratings.
