The Shorty Interview
with JohnBasedow

What's your favorite Twitter app?
The Blackberry app. It was a miraculous day when I realized tweets could be checked on something other than a computer. I think angels sang.
Twitter or Facebook?
No contest - Twitter. It's the only social media site I log into from my phone. Facebook has to wait until I'm in front of a computer.
What feature should Twitter add?
A button that gives six pack abs & eternal youth to all who click it..or an app that shoots out money. Get on that, Twitterati!
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
#IJustVotedForJohnBasedowToWinAShorty :)
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
I'm Twitter buds with @JacLaurita @MorgFair @BuckHollywood, all of whom inspire me. Plus I got a movie role via Twitter. That helps.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#IJustVotedForJohnBasedowToWinAShorty ... Seriously, #ITookControl because it's empowering & says it all in 3 little words.
What inspires you to tweet?
1. Something that motivated or helped me. 2. Something that made me laugh. 3. Something that gave me an "aha moment".
How long can you go without a tweet?
Longer than I can hold my breath but I still might check @ mentions.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That it's a waste of time. Through Twitter I've found friends, business associates & new opportunities I never would have otherwise.
Why should people follow you?
I might be able to save you from wasting some time, effort & money on achieving your goals...plus you may laugh on occasion. Bonus!
How do you decide what to tweet?
I create tweets to entertain, educate, motivate & inspire my followers. I also reach out to new people & organizations I'd like to meet.
Why'd you start tweeting?
To reach people in a way I never thought possible and spread the message that you can take control of your body and life to achieve greatness
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Converse positively and stop spreading negativity. Haterade has a nasty aftertaste. Use social media to do good & you can change the world.
