In short, Ruhani is the “Chuck Norris” of social media. He was the one that brought all these social media technology and culture to the company as well as consulting the client on it. He has a very convincing point on everything about social media and technology. If I could remember, he was or still is a Twitter celebrity and was chosen as the Top 50 twitter celebrities. Aside from official engagement, he is a fun guy that you would want to hang out with all the time.
