The Shorty Interview
with Kenn Elmore

What's your best tweet?

Boston; and; playlist; coolness; swoon; Sasquatch; ticky-tack;Terriers; Rick-Rolled; C'mon man
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Why should we vote for you?
Because it's a vote for community.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
@georgiaarnold - a global connection with pop culture and strategy to address AIDS
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
How do you make your tweets unique?
By focusing in on the crowd and not the game.
What inspires you to tweet?
Cool stuff that young people are doing. Empowerment. The liberal arts in action. Seeing passion manifest. Neat career ideas. Love.

What's your message for the world.

Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That it's only about telling the world about frivolous navel gazing.
Why should people follow you?
Because I love that which is playful, stylish, articulate, highly-referenced, coded, transcendent, lyrical, musical, pop, and political.
How do you decide what to tweet?
I use Twitter and my other online communication streams - blog posts, comments, web sites - in a manner far more nuanced than making announcements. One of my uses is to challenge and ask questions - especially the ones on the margin - and with a bit of edge as a style. My foundational themes are about careers and finding your way to living a life of significance; the power of young people to be engaged in and change the society; and, the power of critical thinking. I am have also been known to focus on elements of spectator experience rather than the actual event itself. (I always decide that there are enough people who will write and talk about the event or activity.) When I engage the online environment, I look for what I believe are cutting edge and innovative “things” – improvisation in the conventional and inspiration in the ordinary. Online, I am also known to be colorful, questioning, enigmatic, and a bit of a trash-talker who invites responses.
Why'd you start tweeting?
To try it all out and to connect with folks.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
It's made me more observant.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
How will the world change in the next year?
There should be less fear.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Tweeting too much about the inconsequential
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
