What are six things you could never do without?
toliet paper, sushi, iphone and charger, macbook pro, coke-cola, sometimes my wife but always my child
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
its more then just my 9-5 its more like my 23 hour a day thing.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Twitter or Facebook?
twitter - i'd rather have 500 people I've never known follow me then 200 kids from high school who I really didnt like in high school
What feature should Twitter add?
twitter stats/geographic sort/following/unfollowing in mass to help you clear you lists and get it right.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
curse words - which I try rarely to use... but if you're going to go for the gold - dont write gld :P
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
yes all the time - 3 years ago the rage was follow/refollow then I started looking at who I was following and I hated what I was reading
Why should we vote for you?
Vote for me - so it'll encourage me to keep being that better Dad? not enough guilt?
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
The Worlds Best Dads
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
I changed jobs because a follower invited me over for a cup of coffee which turned out to be so much more!
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#DadsTalking was partly my creation and it really did get a ton of use in 2011 like millions of impressions - wished we didnt fade it away
How do you make your tweets unique?
I try to put my voice and life slant on them - it also helps that I'm totally dyslectic so its never really english
What inspires you to tweet?
clearly its free therapy
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
you're not really a twitter user until you are called out for tweeting to much.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
be yourself, dont worry about the spelling mistakes, write like no one is reading, and dont tweet stupid things to celebs
How long can you go without a tweet?
1 day. maybe unless I was on a beach but even then I'd be looking for a free wifi signal so who am i kidding
What question are we not asking here that we should?
you havent asked one question about the people behind the person using the twitter account - like why my 4 year old makes me laugh daily
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
in my circles it more just flooding of links then conversation - I'd like to see more conversation.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
CoryBooker that guy really impresses me.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
Jimmy Fallon might be the funniest
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
twitter is easy to use - how many people have no clue that you cant start off a tweet with a @username unless its a reply tweet.
Why should people follow you?
Moms and Dads should follow me for the humor that I put out there also the great giveaways and reviews on dadarocks
How do you decide what to tweet?
I run it by my wife :P she has a magic black list of topics off limits to twitter
How do you use social media to motivate yourself or others to live a healthier life?
I live tweeted my heart attack?! not sure that counts - I dont do healthier - that great... I just try to tweet the facts.
How has social media helped bring your family closer together and #keepgoodgoing?
I think its made me a better dad - I always ping the world before we make a major purchase - get advice ect - its given back to my family
Why'd you start tweeting?
buying my baby son items - he was 95 percentile I needed advice from people that were a head of me but still being able to choose which
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Yes, twitter has given me community, new friends (not just online but in real life) and most important gave me an outlet.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
community building and then being part of these community - we're all putting on our pants one leg at a time.
How will the world change in the next year?
I'm hoping we get guns under control.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
leaving a phone unlocked with teenage kids around.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Our robot overlords will have taken over... I'm living in the now.
