The Shorty Interview
with University of MS

What's your best tweet?
"Rebels beat the Bulldogs 41-24 to become bowl eligible! #hottytoddy #eggbowl #itsours"
What are six things you could never do without?
(1) Ole Miss (2) football (3) tailgating (4) the Grove (5) candelabras (6) Uggs
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
Whether it be letting people know about an upcoming game or campus event or linking to an epic video by our students, we keep you in the loop
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Twitter or Facebook?
Twitter. We're products of the digital age. If it's over 140 characters, you've lost us.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
McKayla Maroney. She's still not impressed.
What feature should Twitter add?
We REALLY want Instagram back.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Eli Manning. PS - Who knew Smaug (the dragon) had a Twitter account?
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
"Hotty Toddy," "Feed Moncrief," "Beat State."
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
The crew of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Seriously, we hear they like to come to Oxford.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Only haters. Don't be a hater.
Why should we vote for you?
To semi-quote the movie Bring It On - "We're spunky. We're cute. We're popular to boot." And who doesn't love Ole Miss?
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Some of our notable alumni including The Blindside's Michael Oher (@MichaelOher) and Olympic gold medalist Brittney Reese (@DaLJBeast)
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#wontheday or #wintheday, depending of course, on the time of day...duh.
How do you make your tweets unique?
We tell the story of daily life at Ole Miss. We are the one-stop shop for anything relevant at the university.
What inspires you to tweet?
With all of our students, faculty, staff, alumni, and fans, there's always a conversation in which to join!
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Of course, but not in the Twitterverse. It's hard to be married to @OleMissRebels. Just ask our spouses.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Be short. Be funny. Be fly.
How long can you go without a tweet?
Roughly 15 minutes, but my wife would have a better count (she's keeping tabs).
What question are we not asking here that we should?
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
We want Twitter to be able to read our minds one day. Logging in? So 2009.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
@CoachHughFreeze is one of our favorites. Despite his busy schedule, his inspirational quotes and excessive RTs always keep us entertained.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
Hands down, @OleMissProblems. This parody account of daily life at Ole Miss is funny because, well ... it's true.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That you can share every aspect of your daily life. Save that for Facebook.
Why should people follow you?
We love our fans and we just want to get to know them better. Our fans know this university inside and out - we want to hear from them!
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
@RedCupRebellion, @potlikker, @SEC_Logo
How do you decide what to tweet?
If it has the ability to impact our students, faculty, alumni, or fans, we get the message out ASAP. Funny stuff is good too.
Why'd you start tweeting?
Great way to connect and, let's face it, social networking started in the Grove at Ole Miss. We have to be social!
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Absolutely, especially in the PR world. Twitter gives us the opportunity to have a conversation with everyone, not just push a message.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
How will the world change in the next year?
New season of Arrested Development airs later this year. Michael Bluth for President!
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Don't you just hate it when you post about your bubble bath from your company's Twitter account? Yeah. It happens to the best of us.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
