The winner of the 2010 Academy Awards is #thecove
What are six things you could never do without?
Laptop, Internet access, Food, Air, Water, People.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
Connecting, promoting and supporting environmental leaders and businesses. Learning about Social media so I can pass it on to those people
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Hootsuite followed by the @Twylah power tweet. I also recommend @bufferapp
Twitter or Facebook?
Both. I just see people not tools and software
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
#shitmydadsays when it first came out
What feature should Twitter add?
More integration with my http://xeeme.com/m... account so that a link is created each time I tweet
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
I focus on who is here not who is not. Would love if @dalailama tweeted more and conversed though.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Michael, please retweet me, environment, twitter, japan
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
I am not concerned about who follows me. That will happen naturally. My messages are being spread increasingly effectively
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Secret. Maybe they don't know yet. Just joking. I very very rarely unfollow anyone who has tweeted in the past month
Why should we vote for you?
I am the leading connector and promoter of green causes on Twitter via my @ecoleaders Twitter account and my personal account
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Probably @terrinakamura She tweets about design, Apple, Social Media and art. She is fun and geeky at the same time
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
How do you make your tweets unique?
I tweet so that anyone at any time can retweet and/ or feel like they are part of the conversation and join in. Stick to niche of SM & #green
What inspires you to tweet?
The fact that many environmental organisations and businesses are not working hand in hand and that there are big problems for our planet
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
No have never had that. I tweet like no-one is watching but I always keep my followers in mind when I tweet
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Decide why you log into Twitter. Build lists. Thank & RT a group of about 30 top people in your niche who thank & RT. Be fun, friendly & you
How long can you go without a tweet?
Ten minutes or so. Tweet about 150 times a day from my main account and 50-80 from about 10 others
What question are we not asking here that we should?
What are your 5 favourite kinds of tweet? 1. RTs (with a comment) 2. Connecting (multi mentions) 3. Info share 4. Conversation 5. Thanking
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
@AnnTran_ Ann keeps a wonderful balance of thanking, inspiring, sharing, providing info, conversation and fun
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
@johnhaydon A little quirky but always has a clever or interesting remark
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That your tweets are only seen by your followers. Often get retweeted by people who are following lists that I am on or during Twitter chats
Why should people follow you?
To get connected to my network, especially in the Twitter Tools and Environmental spaces. To learn about Social Media and to be inspired!
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
How do you decide what to tweet?
Niche. Social media and environment
How do you use social media to motivate yourself or others to live a healthier life?
I keep everything on my posts and on my various social sites up beat and positive. It is all about mindset.
Why'd you start tweeting?
So that I could effectively connect leading people in the environmental space and inspire them to use Twitter
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Absolutely. It is the only true random and supportive network and I believe that a growing group of us are creating a sustainable planet
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
There are no rules.Everyone does it differently. I have no complaints. I wish they would Retweet me more and engage in Twitterchats I host
How will the world change in the next year?
Connection leading to Consciousness, especially about holostic health and the environment
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
There are no rules. So nothing than anybody does is wrong. Ask me what are good things people do then I could write a book (in fact I have).
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
No countries or armies or police. No coal getting burned. Peace. Even in 8 years! This is my #2020vision
