The Shorty Interview
with Bonnie Pfiester

What's your best tweet?
Fitness motivation is my passion! If u need a mental, physical or spiritual boost, I'm your girl! Get 30 Days of Motivation: www.pFITblog.com
What are six things you could never do without?
Makeup, iPhone, iPad, Macbook & @stevepfiester
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
How can someone NOT use Twitter in their professional life?! ha! Seriously, it's the best way to get out news, brands, updates & trends
What's your favorite Twitter app?
I use TweetDeck - but @stevepfiester would say I am his favorite app, & I am totally free & have voice recognition. He uses me a lot. haha
Twitter or Facebook?
For me, Facebook is very personal & a great link to our local & fitness community. I love Twitter for it's endless reach & possibilities.
What feature should Twitter add?
An easier way to look people up while typing a tweet - not just people you follow, but everyone ...and quick reference for hashtags too :)
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
I'm like Mikey, I'll try anything. I don't refuse to do anything as long as people understand what I'm saying. Retract that! I won't use Xmas
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Several! But, I think Bob Harper, Jane Fonda & Richard Simmons would be a good start! <3
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Yes. People who never follow back, never reply, never mention anyone - and always talk about themselves & post a ton of links...Bye Bye!
Why should we vote for you?
Because I truly care. I want to make a difference. The more followers I have, the bigger impact I can make. I want to make a real difference.
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
@mytrwinerbob was my fav celeb, but my most interesting connections are the brands I meet here daily. New doors open daily in twitter land.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#justshowup > It's my motto for working out. I rarely feel like working out, but if I can just focus on showing up, the rest falls into place
How do you make your tweets unique?
My tweets have 1 thing no one else has - ME! Anyone can quote a famous quote, but I like to use my own words & my own experiences.
What inspires you to tweet?
Anything and everything can inspire me - but what inspires me the most are the things that bring people joy, power, hope and laughter.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Only once. My tumblr, instagram, facebook & flickr account were all linked & one day they all posted the same thing 4 times. I changed that.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Don't be a twitter snob - follow back, RT, reply & mention people. It's not really all about you (or me), it's all about community.
How long can you go without a tweet?
Just a few hours - I never miss a day
What question are we not asking here that we should?
What has taught me? Twitter taught me to choose my words wisely & speak more quality, less quality. So much can be said in 140 characters.
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
I don't see Twitter changing too much, just getting better, used more, & continuing to grow with new features & new ways to use it.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
I was really impressed with @mytrainerbob (Bob Harper) for replying to me & interacting with fans. Many celebs don't interact at all.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
My husband @stevepfiester. Even after 18 years, he still always cracks me up. He's my very own free comedian - and twitter boyfriend!
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That it's complicated - but it's the opposite. It's only complicated to people who aren't used to insanely simple.
Why should people follow you?
Because I give honest, realistic diet & fitness advice and motivation - and I'm loads of fun too! ha :)
How do you decide what to tweet?
I tweet real life stuff - my personal fitness struggles, killer workouts & what's cooking in my kitchen. It's personal, its real, it's ME!!
How do you use social media to motivate yourself or others to live a healthier life?
People think that I'm so motivational, but the fact people rely on me to motivate them is what keeps me going! It's a win-win!
How has social media helped bring your family closer together and #keepgoodgoing?
Oh my Gosh! It's been AMAZING! I would never see half my family if it weren't for social media! LOVE keep up with them & reading their posts!
Why'd you start tweeting?
I started tweeting to encourage people to get healthy and motivation them to stick with it. Before I knew it, I had a whole twitter family!
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
YES! I've gotten to work with some great brands like @reebok, @designerwhey @GNClivewell @chobani @LoseIt - because of twitter
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
I wish they'd do less generic tweets, and more personal ones. ...and complaining shouldn't be allowed. We get plenty of that everywhere else.
How will the world change in the next year?
It will get fitter if I have anything to do with it!
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
When people want to argue or be mean. Don't be a hater, just unfollow. No one is forcing u to read my tweets u dooffus! UNFOLLOW! ha!
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
A very scary place probably. But, I really do think will have more knowledge and support to live healthier because of the web & social media
