An 11-year-old Fairfield girl will get a chance to visit the Washington Post newsroom after a brief Twitter conversation went viral.
Katie Reddy, a fourth-grade student, says she thinks she'll get to visit the paper's Washington, D.C. headquarters in April.
She reads the paper every day, and when her cousin, himself a reporter for the New York Times, tweeted about it, the paper replied.
The brief back-and-forth has been retweeted thousands of times.
"We were just blown away by their response," says John Reddy, the girl's father.
Katie says she wants to grow up and become a journalist.
Since the tweet, News 12 Connecticut and NBC's "Today" show have offered her invitations to visit.
