The Shorty Interview
with Alex Matsuo

What's your best tweet?
My comparison to Richard III's reconstructed face to Lord Farquaad from Shrek.
What are six things you could never do without?
1. Camera 2. Man-Slave 3. Water 4. Les Miserables Soundtrack 5. Cell Phone 6. Laptop
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I use Twitter to answer questions about events as well as promote our events, generate buzz, and of course, get stoked about the radio show.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Instagram is pretty cool. Foursquare is too creepy.
Twitter or Facebook?
Twitter for the short stuff. Facebook for the long stuff.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
"Dear TMZ" and it was the Justin Bieber fans going nuts against TMZ.
What feature should Twitter add?
The ability to email tweets? I don't know. Twitter has all their bases covered, not sure what else to add. Unless its a bathroom app...
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
My grumpy old neighbor across the street. Grumpy cat has nothing on this guy. I've thought about making one and tweeting as him.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
because, with, for, before, no one, one, whatever, fabulous, Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Hugh Jackman. Enough said.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
I unfollowed someone for retweeting like crazy. I like originality. I've also unfollowed people who were jerks to me.
Why should we vote for you?
I've worked hard to build Paranormal Insider Radio up to be the best in paranormal radio and we're a unique show from the rest.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
Monkey trouble, Parrots on the loose, Ice Cream Parade, Steam Powered Giraffe, Big Girls Are Beautiful, Shut Up Anne
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Met one of my really good friends because we had mutual friends & turns out we had been at the same parties but never met before then.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
How do you make your tweets unique?
I try to keep a nice mix of funny and serious. And I stay true to myself and not to be creepy, but I hope people read my tweets in my voice.
What inspires you to tweet?
Awesome things. Hilarious things. Insightful things. Informative things. I rarely tweet about food unless its the nectar of the Gods.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Not yet...I'm sure my time is coming though since I'm loving Twitter more than FB at the moment.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Short & sweet. Don't document every second of life. If its profound, tweet it. If its funny, tweet it. Keep the sad tweets to a minimum.
How long can you go without a tweet?
A few days. But then I feel like I'm back in class after missing a week.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
Do you like long walks on the beach? Yes or no. Explain.
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
I can imagine Twitter creating this awesome app where it can be video tweets without having to click on a link. Or voice tweets!
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
I think it has to be Grumpy Cat. I love the humor. Frances McDormand's jean jacket is a close second. And BFA Problems.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That it connects you to super famous people like you're besties. I've seen many fangirls tweet love letters to their celebrity crushes.
Why should people follow you?
I post quirky things every day as well as interesting stuff about events, PRS, the paranormal, and Paranormal Insider Radio.
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
Frances McDormand's Jean Jacket is hilarious. I also enjoy following Abraham Lincoln and watching him argue with his wife.
How do you decide what to tweet?
Is it funny? Will it change the world? Will it make people think WTF? Will it save someone's life? Is it informative?
How do you use social media to motivate yourself or others to live a healthier life?
I find people respond very positively to my "healthy tweets" and I have a fear of disappointing hundreds of people.
How has social media helped bring your family closer together and #keepgoodgoing?
I'm able to keep up to date on what's going on with my family and it helps me remember birthdays better.
Why'd you start tweeting?
Because all the cool kids were doing it. And its a nice break from Facebook.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Twitter has changed my life in terms that I can only rant in 140 characters. I have to get to the point and be more direct. ;)
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
More characters. I can take over the world with 200 characters.
How will the world change in the next year?
I think technology will further the human race and become more advanced. Unfortunately I think it will cause personal interaction to weaken.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
You have to sum up life in 140 characters and have it make sense. I'm impressed with how people express themselves in short spaces.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Way too technologically advanced heading towards Wall-E status. Or the world will be exactly the same.
