The Shorty Interview
with Lilly Singh

What's your best tweet?
According to Klout: Girls who sleep with a bra on...how do you exist? #ComfortIsMyMama #YourPoorBoobs
What are six things you could never do without?
My iPhone, Twitter, Instagram, Music, Movies and buttery popcorn.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I make YouTube videos and entertain for a living right now. Twitter helps me further showcase my weirdness and interact with my viewers.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
I'd have to say HootSuite. I love being able to schedule tweets especially since a lot of my viewers are in India.
Twitter or Facebook?
Hands down, Twitter. I feel like Twitter is way more responsive than Facebook. It's clean, simple and I don't get annoying invites.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
#RejectedLuckyCharmMarshmellowShapes
What feature should Twitter add?
The ability to switch to and from different accounts on the website without having to sign in and out.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
The late Aaliyah. Everything she did was amazing.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Love. Luv does not mean the same thing.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Hannah Hart and Daily Grace because I secretly believe they need a token brown girl in their group.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
I have unfollowed people because I found them to be super negative. I don't like Debbie Downers. I won't say who though, because that's mean.
Why should we vote for you?
I try to go beyond being a comic on YouTube. In addition to making people laugh, I want them to feel loved, inspired & good about themselves.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
When Leah Remini responded to my tweet. I casually complimented her and she tweeted back. In other words, we're now BFFs.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#UnicornIsland - It's a place where we go when we want to be happy, loving, kind and be friends.
How do you make your tweets unique?
I tweet things that other South Asian women may be afraid to say out loud. I keep it real and I reference Unicorns a lot.
What inspires you to tweet?
The possibility that my weird/crazy thought will make somebody smile during a bad day.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
A few times. More recently during the Royal Rumble. The Rock was wrestling though. Need I say more? #Granted
140 characters of advice for a new user?
I know this is confusing and scary right now. But I promise in 24 hours you will be addicted to the blue bird. You've been warned #Truth
How long can you go without a tweet?
3 hours max? This questions scares me...
What question are we not asking here that we should?
You've done a pretty stellar job but I'd like to be asked what animal I wish to be. I just want the opportunity to tell you I'm a unicorn...
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
I can see Twitter introducing applications into personal profiles and timelines. In other words, little ways you can tweek and modify.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
Ellen DeGeneres. She tweets awesome, funny, witty and most importantly positive thoughts.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
Definitely Bad Luck Bryan. His life sucks.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That it is an invasion of privacy. People only read what you choose to tweet. Don't tweet dramatic secrets and you shall receive no drama.
Why should people follow you?
I tweet real, relatable things that will make you smile. I'm all about feel good, positive messages.
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
There's still accounts that are one-of-a-kind on Twitter?! I feel like even parodies have parodies these days.
How do you decide what to tweet?
If I think it and it's not offensive to anyone, I tweet it.
How do you use social media to motivate yourself or others to live a healthier life?
I tweet about simple things that I feel make a big difference. For example, "Today let's all take a moment to give someone a compliment."
How has social media helped bring your family closer together and #keepgoodgoing?
My family is brown. They don't understand Twitter =) BUT it's easier to #keepgoodgoing when thoughts can be trended with hashtags.
Why'd you start tweeting?
Posting a video every time I want to communicate something is unrealistic. A Facebook post is annoying. A tweet is the perfect medium.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Yes. The world has become a smaller place and it's easier to connect with such a broad range of people. My phone also dies more often.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Treat celebrities like human beings. Some of the things people tweet to celebrities are just plain cruel.
How will the world change in the next year?
Ten more addictive social media websites will be created and humans will spend more time on their smart phones. I'm okay with that =)
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Subtweeting when you're angry at someone who follows you. Let's all be adults now.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Hopefully we'll be using jetpacks. This road/traffic thing is getting lame...
