The Shorty Interview
with THE SMIRK

What's your best tweet?
I don't think I'm qualified to make that call.
What are six things you could never do without?
god. god's creation. my iphone. music. words. my friends.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I often use twitter at work, as in tweeting when I'm supposed to be working.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Twitter or Facebook?
Twitter. (which then forwards to Facebook... allegedly. there's no way to know.)
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
Recently... the overly manly man stuff!
What feature should Twitter add?
Overtweet protection where I can set the maximum number of tweets I want to see from any one person in one day. Secret unfollow.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
I dnt thnk there r ne...
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Yes... @shondarhimes and/or @kerrywashington and, of course - TINA FEY!
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
I have and I'm sure I will again. Who: Overtweeters. Why: Overtweeting.
Why should we vote for you?
Because it would make me very happy.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
#huxtable (so good it's unreal)... #favouredwiles (selfish reasons)... #fetch (it needs to happen)
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
#3minuterecap (selfish reasons) also #mylifeisreallyhard because it is.
How do you make your tweets unique?
I just tweet what I think/feel/see... sometimes it's unique and sometimes you don't know what unique means.
What inspires you to tweet?
My needs for attention and approval. Also, my sense of responsibility - I'm kind of a highlight for some people.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Less is more, Undertweeting > Overtweeting. Don't be #teamfollowback: earn it, don't demand it.
How long can you go without a tweet?
Without tweeting? Days. Without reading tweets? Hours.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
Are you crazy? How do you know?
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
I sit quietly and think about it.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
I would say Tina Fey, but she's not on Twitter. And I admire that.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That stupid thing you thought about twitter before you joined.
Why should people follow you?
I don't overtweet. I don't retweet a whole lot. I know the difference between there/their/they're. And sometimes I'm funny.
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
Aren't they all one-of-a-kind?
How do you decide what to tweet?
I don't know, I just do.
How do you use social media to motivate yourself or others to live a healthier life?
I don't. At all. Ever.
How has social media helped bring your family closer together and #keepgoodgoing?
Twitter is like a new-fangled dinner table, it's where we can all go to find out how the day is/was going for each other.
Why'd you start tweeting?
True Story: to keep up to date with where/when my church was. #churchinthewild @hillsongnyc
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Yes. It has shortened my attention span immeasurably. And afforded me tenuous access to people I'd have no access to otherwise.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Think to themselves "Do I have the right to tweet this much?"
How will the world change in the next year?
There will be a new American Idol... possibly two. And I won't know either of their names.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Overtweeting. Spamming. And that thing you hate.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Probably a lot like now, but I'll have more gray hair, so it will seem worse. Much, much worse. Also, landlines will be extinct.
