The Shorty Interview
with The Hunt Museum

What are six things you could never do without?
love, rainbows, ponies and art (x3).
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
We try to inspire people with our museum and collection every which way.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Hootsuite. every. time.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Catullus, the Roman poet and philosopher. Pedicabo ego vos et irrumabo. Google it. Who wouldn't want this guy's tweets?
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Everything else is fair game.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Yes - @ninaksimon - she's an awesome museum professional who's always working to make museums a better place for everyone.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
We don't unfollow. That's just how we roll.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
No, but I once got an 'Overshare' badge on Foursquare. I'm not proud...well, not _that_ proud.
How long can you go without a tweet?
Dunno, but we'll give a coffee to the first person to tell us!
What question are we not asking here that we should?
How do you try to capture people's imaginations with your tweets? Or Superman or Batman; Einstein or Feynman; which flavour jello...
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
I can see it becoming more visual, like a mind-map, where connections to other tweets just sprout, like ideas.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That it's quick and easy. I guess that's two. See how hard it is!?!
Why'd you start tweeting?
We're a small museum in the west of Ireland but we play with the big boys and girls! We love our work and we love sharing it!
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Bland, unadulterated info shouting. It's like emailing in all caps.
