The Shorty Interview
with Phil Plait

What's your best tweet?
From #robotpickuplines: Your lips say 0 but your eyes say 1.
What are six things you could never do without?
Air, gravity, electrons, Doctor Who, my glasses, ice cream
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I use it to promote my blog, but honestly, that's secondary to using it to have fun and be a smartass.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Twitter or Facebook?
Facebook? Is that some sort of Windows thing?
What feature should Twitter add?
Not having a username count against your char limit in a RT.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
If there's someone out there not following me now, they will eventually when my plans for world domination come to fruition. Mwuhahaha.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
I unfollow people when their tweets are too removed from what I like to read. I suspect that's true for everyone!
Why should we vote for you?
You want the honest answer or the smarmy one? I like tweeting about science, I like making jokes, and I like making people think.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
science, antivax, "creationists give up and accept reality"
How do you make your tweets unique?
I doubt anyone's tweets are unique. But I like to make mine fun. Come for the science, stay for the snark.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Talk about your pets and dinner. People love that.
How long can you go without a tweet?
What question are we not asking here that we should?
Are you wearing pants right now?
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Full sagittal nudity
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
