The Shorty Interview
with Jillian Godsil

What's your best tweet?
My last one - I'm only ever as good as my last tweet!
What are six things you could never do without?
my children, love, writing, singing, laughing and kindness (and my mobile)
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I use it all the time to talk about my blog,www.jilliangodsil.com, and my books on Amazon and Lulu
What's your favorite Twitter app?
hootsuite - it's handy. The mobile app is vital too
Twitter or Facebook?
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
Irish Shades of Grey - the tweets were turned into a book at Christmas by New Island. Very funny take on the EL James phenomenon!
What feature should Twitter add?
better search features and easier access to archived tweets
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Random House CEO Markus Dohle
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Does my DEBT look big in this? (I am cheating, this is the new title of a collection of essays on understanding debt and having hope)
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Random House CEO Markus Dohle but I don't think he is online personally, so I guess @randomhouse
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Not yet. Even if I dislike what some may say, if I followed them for a reason, it makes sense to keep listening.
Why should we vote for you?
Becket said: Fail once, Fail better the 2nd time. We need to talk about debt and stop the shame. This is an issue that needs to be fixed now!
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
I became part of chart topping choir for charity #TwitterXmasSingle and an award winning actor in a film for #Depressionhurts
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
How do you make your tweets unique?
I write them all by myself!
What inspires you to tweet?
I think in Ireland we need to talk about debt. There are suicides daily as a result of debt. I am not afraid and not ashamed. Let's talk!
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
no, I'm a moderate tweeter. Sometimes I like to giggle with twitter pals but you don't have to follow!
140 characters of advice for a new user?
listen, lurk, follow and then engage (politely)
How long can you go without a tweet?
What question are we not asking here that we should?
Why am I here? We the people of Ireland should not be picking up the tab for toxic banks and unsecured bondholders. #notourdebt
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
It's hard to know - I love how it integrates with other online media.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
#talentcoop Norah is a genuine presence who manages to communicate her compassion through tweets. A rare and admirable woman
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
@colmoregan or as he is also known @irishmammies
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That people talk about what they had for breakfast. I had toast, what about you?
Why should people follow you?
I want to make people talk about debt and remove the stigma in Ireland. Join me if you feel the same...
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
@talentcoop, @barbarascully, @strikedebt @davidhall75 and lots of good people
How do you decide what to tweet?
I tend to blog first then tweet. I also like to retweet interesting and funny comments and articles by other people
How do you use social media to motivate yourself or others to live a healthier life?
I use Twitter and FB to share my experience of massive personal debt, It is tough but I am not ashamed. We need to talk about debt...
How has social media helped bring your family closer together and #keepgoodgoing?
It keeps me sane! Gives me a voice. So I guess that is good for my children (a. I am sane and b. they don't have to listen to me! lol)
Why'd you start tweeting?
When I first started blogging in earnest I wanted to reach people with the same interests, not necessarily friends but bonded by interest
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Yes, I've made new friends, become a charting pop star, been awarded an International Gong for acting, and I am no longer afraid...
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Listen. I get a lot of news & views on Twitter. It is a direct and brilliant source of information; tying in offline and online conversations
How will the world change in the next year?
bankers and money should give way to people and kindness
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Drunk tweeting, people stalking, ignoring followers, spamming people with your work all the time. Twitter is talk not sales.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
No longer under the control of the bankers.... People above Debt
