The Shorty Interview
with Emily Graslie

What are six things you could never do without?
Zoological museums, natural history, science, biology, dermestid beetles, and the Internet.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Whenever I talk about the secretion of mustelid anal glands I make sure to include as many descriptors as possible to paint a smelly picture.
Why should we vote for you?
I'm the only fulltime staff of our zoological museum, a volunteer, and using YouTube to globally reach thousands that love to learn about us!
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
My connection with an invested, eager, and passionate audience so willing to learn about the natural world with me has been fascinating.
What inspires you to tweet?
All of the silly, fascinating, hilarious, and unique aspects of working in a zoological museum, and learning from dead animals all day.
How long can you go without a tweet?
Only as long as it takes for me to get back to a computer -- I love staying connected and seeing what my followers are up to!
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
I see it becoming an even more important way to engage the interested audience as unique people, and learn more about them as individuals.
Why should people follow you?
I talk about my absurd and unique daily activities; petting dead muskrats, wondering how best to release noxious gasses from carcasses, etc.
How do you use social media to motivate yourself or others to live a healthier life?
I use social media to encourage people of all ages to open their minds to the natural world, and the knowledge it has to offer all of us.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
YES. I have instant engagement with my audience. I get to know them, and appreciate them, and share their passion in an immediate way.
How will the world change in the next year?
Drastically, and for the better with an increase of accessible knowledge and information about this world we live in.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Not understanding or relating to your followers; it is imperative to know who you are talking to, and realize the conversation goes two ways.
