The Shorty Interview
with Shawna

What's your best tweet?
You're asking me to choose the shiniest golden chuckle nugget out of a shimmering El Dorado-nian palace of comedy. How could you?
What are six things you could never do without?
The internet, food, air, Veronica Mars, making things, and Joss Whedon.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I use it to interact with my YouTube following individually. There's no pressure and it's easy to have a nice back and forth with them.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
I actually use the official one. Is that the wrong answer? I think that's the wrong answer.
Twitter or Facebook?
Twitter. PLEASE. TWITTER. I use facebook as well to interact with my 60k+ followers but I find the interactions way less personal/interesting
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
Trends are funny now? ;D
What feature should Twitter add?
A proper block feature that actually stops someone from being able to tweet about you and unblocking themselves by disabling their account.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Whatever I say... it's going to come back to bite me. Does Denzel Washington have a twitter. I'D BE ALL UP ON THAT.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Well, there are ones like obvs and rly which are rly fun obvs. But I can't stomach shortening "you" to "u". IT'S TWO LETTERS. COME ON.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Can I get an order of Colin Mochrie, with a side of Nathan Fillion, and some Harry Styles for dessert? JK Harry stop calling me I said no.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Yes. People are annoying, maaaan. Maaaan. I'd unfollow myself if I could. I can't stand myself. Like. Shut up okay.
Why should we vote for you?
Pop quiz, hotshot. A scorned has-been breaks into your house & eats your pet's innards. What do you do? You vote for her before that happens.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
A stalker here. A stalker there. Sometimes Lady Sovereign tweets at me. That's pretty ballin'. I've met some great musicians though.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#nanada - It's what I consider my "realm" online. It's a lovely place, much like Canada.
How do you make your tweets unique?
I find that washing my keyboard with human tears is the most effective.
What inspires you to tweet?
All kinds of things I suppose. Sometimes the world just has to hear that song lyric or know how much you pooped that day. Right?
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Yes. That's what "unfollow" is for they say. Stop tweeting they say. Going to follow Harry Styles instead they say. He's British they say.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Some of your tweets will fail. Maybe the world won't realize how hilarious your joke is until Ricky Gervais tweets it. Them's the brakes, kid
How long can you go without a tweet?
I pretty much tweet every day unless I'm in a Turkish prison. Since that happened already, I think it's safe to say we're... safe.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
I think you covered your bases there, stalko.
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
Hopefully not too much to be honest. I assume it will get better and more effective because it's always done pretty well for itself yep.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
Uh, um, I like Colin Mochrie because his bitterness sings to my soul, and I met him in Canada's Wonderland once and we're soul sisters.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
If I say Nathan Fillion does that mean you'll love me? Does it mean *HE'LL* love me? It does, doesn't it? Nathan Fillion. No reason.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That you tweet everything you do. Wait people do that. That most of the people are stalking a celebrity. Wait....
Why should people follow you?
I'm going to be a big deal. Little hazy on the details, but if worse comes to worst I could do the world's biggest underwater fart or somethn
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
@mactasia is pretty funny. He makes me laugh out loud which is pretty rare.
How do you decide what to tweet?
Whatever tickles my particular fancy at that moment. I don't know why are you asking me I'm annoying.
How do you use social media to motivate yourself or others to live a healthier life?
I often tweet about having chocolate for breakfast so that people can see firsthand not to do... that.
How has social media helped bring your family closer together and #keepgoodgoing?
Mmm It helps my mom stalk me, which has always been a point of contention for us but apparently "if it's online it's fair game" or something.
Why'd you start tweeting?
Someone bullied me into it and here we are. I wanted to be one of the cool kids. Am I? Is this is? Have I achieved the dream? Where's Harry?
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Yes. It helped me win the Magnum Heir contest last year. I won $250,000 in cash & prizes to help with my film future, and it's insane, maaan.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Tweet about J-Biebz. I mean, that does not happen nearly enough right now. I still have 6 toes I haven't cut off in rage. That's 6 too many.
How will the world change in the next year?
It'll get more connected I suppose. I don't know. That seems to be the way of it. It's given me a career so I'm okay with it.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
What am I, the Ocarina of Time? Actually, I really want to get my hands on one of those replica DeLoreans for $90k. Front me?
