Twitter helps Boston student to star in videos by songwriter Kate Nash
A BOSTON student has featured in two music videos for singer/ songwriter Kate Nash thanks to the power of Twitter.
Roberta Radzvilaviciute, 17, entered a competition on the social networking site last year for the chance to star in the Foundations star's music video for her Halloween-special video, Fri-end.
She was one of 15 people who was invited to travel to London to take part.
Roberta, who is in the second year of studying Business at Boston College, said: "I was asked to go but as I don't drive I wasn't really sure what to do. I told my friends at college and my teachers and they forced me to go. That was October last year.

"In November, I was invited to go back for the premiere.
"Then she, Kate Nash, who follows me on Twitter, asked me by a direct message if I'd like to go back for the video of her next single and I was the only one from the previous shoot she asked back."
The first video for Fri-end was set in a party atmosphere and the latest shoot, for single 3AM, required Roberta to roller skate – something which she'd never done before.
Roberta said: "At the end of the shoot she gave us the chance to take pictures and sign stuff, she was really nice.
"The Fri-end video shoot was only around four hours and the second one was around 12 hours long but it was really interesting.
"It was absolutely incredible and the opportunity of a lifetime as I'm a huge fan of hers.
"At school I always wanted to be a dancer and I feel really lucky to have been able to do it although I wouldn't want it as a career. I'm hoping to go into marketing."
