The Shorty Interview
with AnnoyingActorFriend

What's your best tweet?
"Beyonce lip-synched. BIG DEAL. We all know what happened the last time a diva tried to sing live. I'm looking at you, Russell Crowe."
What are six things you could never do without?
Actors on Broadway, Actors on TV, Actors in Movies, Non-Union Actors, Working Actors, and Unemployed Actors.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I don't. In fact, if I could find a way to make just $15 off this anonymous parody account, my life would be complete.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Um... The one on my iPhone?
Twitter or Facebook?
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
#sondheimlowerbacktattoo: lower back tattoos inspired by Sondheim songs. i.e. "Sorry, Grateful" "Something's Coming" "I Know Things Now"
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?
No word is safe. Gorgeous (Gorge!), Totally (Totes!) Not even amazing (amazeballs!) and work (werk!) are safe from bastardization.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Lena Dunham. I respect her work and believe she would appreciate my humor and the theme of my account.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
When I hit 6,000 followers, I unfollowed nearly everyone that wasn't verified. Because, that's what annoying actors do when they make it BIG.
Why should we vote for you?
I'd be one step further to having a SH-EGOT. But, it's an honor just to be nominated.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
All the people who continue to donate to my various Kickstarters! #fundmyshow #fundmyalbum #fundmylife
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#Smashtag: a hashtag you tweet while watching an episode of NBC's SMASH. It has been adopted by members of the cast of SMASH.
How do you make your tweets unique?
Bourbon and bitterness.
What inspires you to tweet?
Shameless self promotion. SMASH. Humble bragging. Offensive hashtags. Russell Crowe in Les Mis.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Nobody calls their annoying actor friend out. They bitch about him in private.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Don't just have a great idea. Think longevity. Find a way to keep it fresh. I've been building upon the same joke for eight months.
How long can you go without a tweet?
About as long as an actor can go without fishing for complements.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
Should Karen or Ivy play Marilyn? #smashtag
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
It'll keep getting bigger, faster, and louder. And then it will trigger the zombie apocalypse.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
Kim Kardashian does brilliant werk.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
AnnoyingActorFriend (@Actor_Friend) #FF ! He's always #nailingit. I have so many friends JUST LIKE HIM.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
It's full of mindless, mundane musings from millions of people feigning relevance. Oh...wait...
Why should people follow you?
Because I'm so meta. Seriously. I blow my own mind.
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
How do you decide what to tweet?
Extensive brainstorm. Outline. Several drafts with my writing team. Workshop. Table read... But most of the time I blindly tweet drunk.
How do you use social media to motivate yourself or others to live a healthier life?
I use social media to share how often I work out, go to dance class, and abstain from carbs. #skinny
How has social media helped bring your family closer together and #keepgoodgoing?
Not sure about my family... but, I know actors are coming together over my SMASH recaps on annoyingactorfriend.com!
Why'd you start tweeting?
To share how #blessed my life is.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
I have a fan base now. Still no job, though. Working on that. #funemployment
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Write more intelligent and funny tweets. I get embarrassed for our country and humanity when IHOP trends every Saturday morning.
How will the world change in the next year?
Actors Equity Association will find a way for me to make less money on tour.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Accounts ripped off of mine that aren't nearly as funny. (i.e. @BwayChildStar, @AgentFriend, @AnnoyingBwayFan, etc.)
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Oh, shit. It's going to be so, so stupid.
