The Shorty Interview
with Andrew Miller

What's your best tweet?
What are six things you could never do without?
iPhone. MacBook. Moleskin. Sharpie. Baseball glove. Passport.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
For updating people with industry news, sharing my work and giving commentary.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Twitter or Facebook?
Twitter. Hands down.
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?
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Ashton Kutcher. I admire what he is doing with Twitter and new media. It feels fresh.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
I've unfollowed bots and pro athletes who only gave impersonal PR updates.
Why should we vote for you?
I gained over one million followers on Pinterest this year.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
Velociraptors. New Star Wars Movie.
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
A very interesting Hollywood director.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#theartofcompetition.
How do you make your tweets unique?
I try to tweet like I talk. Just keep them in my own voice.
What inspires you to tweet?
Meditation. Current events. Art. Sports. Opinions.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Just occasionally ;)
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Be interesting and be interested. Find a purpose. Don't complain that it's pointless. Maybe you're pointless!
How long can you go without a tweet?
A day or two and then I start to get antsy or worry I've become boring.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
What is the purpose of Twitter?
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
A better layer of organization and search would be nice. A few tools to make sure you keep finding the things you want.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
Whoever runs Modern Seinfeld. Wish I'd thought of that.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That it's all about what people had for lunch.
Why should people follow you?
To talk about sports or creativity. To trade jokes and start memes. I treat Twitter as a collaboration.
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
Modern Seinfeld. Fake Dan Wieden.
How do you decide what to tweet?
If I find something really, really interesting, I tweet it.
How do you use social media to motivate yourself or others to live a healthier life?
Nike+ and the Nike FuelBand are an interesting start. I like competing on those.
How has social media helped bring your family closer together and #keepgoodgoing?
By keeping the connection in real time.
Why'd you start tweeting?
It felt different and it felt like it could lead me anywhere.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
No, but it has made it more interesting and connected.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
How will the world change in the next year?
Influence will come from unexpected places. Old institutions will continue to be challenged.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Auto-tweeting or being too PRish with it. People and brands should keep it human.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
I have no clue. I hope to be a part of it somehow.
