The Shorty Interview
with NW Ark Comm College

How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
@NWACC was created 2 reach out to stakeholders, keep them updated on what's happening, & to answer ?s. We hope we've accomplished that.
Twitter or Facebook?
What feature should Twitter add?
Twitter should add a FaceTime/Skype-like feature to connect with other Twitter users over video. Our avatar boxes would be perfect for this!
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
For those NWACC stakeholders who don't have a Twitter feed - - we wish you did.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
#NWACCfamily, "How can we help?"
Why should we vote for you?
If we keep you connected to NWACC, if we've answered 1 of your financial aid questions, if you've laughed at 1 of our posts, plz vote for us!
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Connecting w the stakeholders of NWACC is why we're here. They have great stories to tell & we're here to listen and engage.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
How do you make your tweets unique?
We try to tailor our tweets to our audience and we throw in a unique hashtag every now and then, too.
What inspires you to tweet?
Members of our #NWACCfamily - the students, faculty, staff, alumni, & donors of the college. Engagement & providing info is our #1 priority.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Be real, be open, be polite, engage...and follow @NWACC.
How long can you go without a tweet?
What question are we not asking here that we should?
"What question are we asking here that we shouldn't?" :)
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
Adding more features - hopefully video chat capabilities...that would be pretty neat!
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
One of the biggest misconceptions is that Twitter is only used to update people on "what you're having for lunch." BBQ chicken, by the way...
Why should people follow you?
@NWACC = 1-stop-shop for info; campus activities, what our stakeholders are doing, important dates, and we sprinkle in some fun posts too!
How do you decide what to tweet?
Check the calendar for upcoming events, plan ahead, and be on our toes. The best tweets are not planned...
How do you use social media to motivate yourself or others to live a healthier life?
Sharing ideas is what makes social media so great. Seeing what other people are doing is a great motivator in terms of living healthier.
How has social media helped bring your family closer together and #keepgoodgoing?
Social media is all about sharing - - the sharing of ideas, cool practices, neat projects. Twitter is the perfect outlet to #keepgoodgoing.
Why'd you start tweeting?
To connect with our stakeholders, to provide updates on NWACC news, and to answer any questions they might have about their higher education.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Starting an account and not using it. The infamous Egg-head is the worst!
