The Shorty Interview
with Sheffield Wednesday

What's your best tweet?
Posting it is a bit of a haze, but upon gaining promotion last season a tweet of "WE ARE GOING UP!" was typed using pure euphoria.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Tweetdeck is always a winner on mobile devices to monitor search terms and keep in touch on the move.
Twitter or Facebook?
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Languages are beautiful and shortening them should always be avoided where possible - we try to only shorten URLs!
Why should we vote for you?
We try to give all Owls fans a reason to follow us:- breaking news, information, ticket details, live match updates, photos and plenty more.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
We try to always use #swfc so supporters know where to speak to fellow fans at a glance - it's always nice to see #swfc up in lights!
What inspires you to tweet?
The fans. Owls supporters are amazing and plentiful across the globe so it's a pleasure to engage with them in this way.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
We have done in the past. On a matchday we tweet regular game updates so can clutter feeds, but we think we've found a balance now!
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Take part and join in the conversation - twitter springs into life the more you use it!
How long can you go without a tweet?
On a normal day, no more than a few hours usually. During a match, no more than a few minutes!
What question are we not asking here that we should?
Who's city is it? (One for the fans there..!)
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
Quantity of followers doesn't always reflect how good a twitter feed is - the quality of followers and content does!
Why should people follow you?
We try to tweet all the news and information as soon as we have it, as well as our popular live match tweets and photos/videos.
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
Our lovable mascots Ozzie and Barney are must-follows with plenty of character, fun, banter and pie eating! @o22ie_owl & @BarneyOwl67
How do you use social media to motivate yourself or others to live a healthier life?
As a sports team, health is an important aspect! Utilising our superb Community Programme, we regularly tweet information about healthy Owls!
Why'd you start tweeting?
Twitter is the perfect way to engage with supporters - from providing the information you want to even just chatting and answering questions.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Almost anything goes, doesn't it? Although people asking for retweets for no particular reason can get a little irritating at times!
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Celebrating Sheffield Wednesday winning the Champions League?
