The Shorty Interview
with VCU

What's your best tweet?
Anything Basketball related. This tweet was extremely popular. "Weather channel reports it's raining threes in downtown RVA. #GORAMSGO"
What are six things you could never do without?
Students. Faculty. Staff. Alumni. VCU Basketball. Rodney the Ram.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
What's your favorite Twitter app?
What feature should Twitter add?
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Why should we vote for you?
I have cool horns and hooves.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
Fiddle-Faddle. Sorry...it just popped into my head.
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Hmmm...good quiz. I love our students. They have great energy.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
How do you make your tweets unique?
I try to reflect the spirit of VCU. Urban University with a brainy and edgy vibe.
What inspires you to tweet?
Our smart aleck students. Our smart faculty. Smart phones.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
No. Sometimes during basketball games, they ask if a sugar-crazed toddler has taken control of the account, but not called out for too much.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Don't tweet during class.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
What are you wearing?
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
I imagine they will add a new cute cousin named Oliver to the line-up once the whale is no longer helping with the ratings.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That the tweeting bulldog is interesting.
Why should people follow you?
I try to not get too chatty and have conversations that mean nothing to my followers. I'm here to serve them up things they might enjoy.
How do you decide what to tweet?
It comes to me in visions.
Why'd you start tweeting?
Because all the kids were doing it.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
How will the world change in the next year?
There will be a few more people.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
I make it a practice to not know them so I can consistently commit them.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
There will be more people.
