What's your favorite Twitter app?
Twitter or Facebook?

All babies. Wouldn't it be funny to find out what a nine-month-old is tweeting about?
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Hate to shorten the word "Thanks."
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Houston Texans DE @JJWatt. He is an amazing football star, and he makes so many contributions to the community. Great guy!

What inspires you to tweet?
Our students. San Jacinto College has made it a top priority to keep our students informed through social media. They depend on us.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Make sure you are confident that this is the right social media tool for you. Use it. Have fun with it. Most of all, think before you Tweet.
How long can you go without a tweet?
Not long! We've got students tweeting about @SanJacCollege every minute. We always want to acknowledge their tweets.

Really all news outlets. It's great to know that you can find out what's going on in the world through Twitter.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
We have a lot of students who are funny tweeters. They definitely keep it interesting on our feed.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That it's similar to Facebook. How you interact on Facebook is different than how you interact on Twitter.
Why should people follow you?
We share important information about the college. We provide another resource for students to stay updated on all things San Jac.
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
Can we fit all of our students' Twitter accounts in this little box?
How do you decide what to tweet?
We base our decisions on what to tweet on important college information and events and questions we receive from students.

Social media keeps us talking. There's always something (good and bad) on Twitter or Facebook that catches our attention.
Why'd you start tweeting?
It was the cool thing to do.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
YES! It has changed the way everyone communicates. Twitter has provided way a unique way to connect to people. It's GREAT!
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
We wish they would stop complaining.
How will the world change in the next year?
We're not thinking about that next year. We're thinking about how the world will change in the next week!
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
We believe it will be cleaner, safer and happier!
