The Shorty Interview
with Kristen Daukas

What's your best tweet?
Hard to say.. the ones where I give information?
What are six things you could never do without?
Family, friends, macbook, iphone, ipad, sense of humor
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
As a social media professional, I'm connected to twitter 24/7 both for me and my clients. It is my bloodline.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Twitter or Facebook?
What feature should Twitter add?
I would like to see an easier way to find users demographically that haven't listed where they are. Twitter knows this info...
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
There are a few that I've come across but not anyone I can think of right now.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
For the 2nd year.. @realkiefer. Please, Kiefer. Hook a girl up.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
I've unfollowed a lot of tweeps that may be considered "a-list" simply because they had zero engagement. To me, that's missing the point.
Why should we vote for you?
I live for my kids, my family and social media. I've been blogging since 2003 - long before most Moms had emails, much less websites!
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
I already started one.. that's enough #BWT ~> Broads Who Tweet
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
The same ones that are my faves --- @markwschaefer @ginidietrich and @swonderlin. They are mentors to me and incredible people.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#BWT --- Broads Who Tweet.. it's a group of tech savvy women who get together for a better purpose.
How do you make your tweets unique?
No holds barred laced with some wicked, tongue in cheek humor.
What inspires you to tweet?
It's my life line.. I think and act in short bursts so it's perfect for my attention span and rapid fire engagement
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
140 characters of advice for a new user?
You have to stick with it and find a core group of people to interact with. Build on it & have fun with it.
How long can you go without a tweet?
Not sure.. haven't ever tested that. But I do NOT tweet while I sleep. Yet.
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
Bringing more of the 3rd party apps inside, better analytics
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
I would say @thejackb, @elainesgriffin, @abittersweet1 & @rhogroupee to name a few.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
Oh this is so hard.. today it's @dontspkwhinese
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That you can only use it on your phone or computer
Why should people follow you?
I try to offer good info and RT things that I think are of interest to moms of #teens and #tweens. And I'm funny.
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
How do you decide what to tweet?
If it's something that causes a reaction in me. Laughter, anger, wisdom and so on.
Why'd you start tweeting?
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
I have reached more people via Twitter than I ever could have in person.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
ENGAGE!! I hate when people are there just because someone told them to be there and all they do is push, push, push.
How will the world change in the next year?
Much more mobile focus, social TV and continued awareness of social brands and engagement
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Not responding when someone @ replies to you.. not thanking for RTing.. not following back.. not engaging.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Completely different than today..
