Dolphins and whales need our voice, please watch the movie "The Cove" and join my Social Media Campaign on FB www.fb.com/Dolphin...
What are six things you could never do without?
My health, my family, my laptop, my Social Media friends, Twitter, Facebook
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I have been on Twitter for over 3 years and love the ability to connect and share in real time important issues with like-minded tweeps
What's your favorite Twitter app?
I have just discovered Hootsuite and loving it
Twitter or Facebook?
I love both Twitter and Facebook, I use the platforms differently, I find that it is easier to share photos for engagement on Facebook
What feature should Twitter add?
I love Twitter just the way it is, I have seen the interface change several times and now that I am used to the new one, I have embraced it
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
dolphinsloveus, endworldhunger, ban cat declawing,
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
I would luv Ellen to follow me, she is an animal passionist I would luv to get her involvement with saving dolphins from slaughter/captivity
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
The only time that I unfollow someone is if they are a bot, if the language used in a tweet is unacceptable or someone is directly rude to me
Why should we vote for you?
I created, manage a Social Media Campaign to bring attention to the cruelty that migrating dolphins encounter at "The Cove" in Taiji, Japan
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
I love that Alysa Milano follows me, she has such a compassionate heart and she loves dogs, she has re-tweeted me resulting in saving lives
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
The hashtag that I would love to trend is #dolphinsloveus , this was created for my Social Media Campaign to bring awareness to the issue
What inspires you to tweet?
My desire to inform, educate and ultimately bring awareness to changing our mindset about what we are doing to our oceans #dolphinsloveus
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Don't be afraid to jump into a conversation, that is the only way peeps will get to know you, don't be offended if U are ignored at first
How long can you go without a tweet?
Not very long ...:-)
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
Twitter will continue to evolve as a platform for Social Causes, for effecting positive & real change on a global level
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
Hands down, @Alyssa_Milano ...she understands the power of twitter, she uses her influence to further causes and for that she has my vote
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That Twitter is a news feed, but if one takes the time it is an amazing platform to forge relationships and in turn effect positive change
Why should people follow you?
My hope that tweeps would follow me to keep informed of what I am passionate about, bringing an end to the capture and slaughter of dolphins
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
How do you decide what to tweet?
I tweet about issues that are immediate such as when dolphins are being herded into the killing cove in Taiji, to motivate people to action
Why'd you start tweeting?
I have been using Twitter for 4 years and I started to use it as a tool to reach people to educate them about my causes #dolphinsloveus
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Twitter most certainly has changed my life. I have met some of the most caring, giving and compassionate peeps who are now friends
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Lighten up, we are all people, we all have our own set of values, we all have our own passions, respect others point of view, smile :-)
How will the world change in the next year?
We have seen the power of Twitter to reach millions of people in instant time, to enlighten them about issues, this will continue
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
The main faux pas that I see would be no engagement and sales link posted thinking that peeps are going to buy without interaction
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
I am a baby boomer & the advances that I have seen in technology & the speed of change is remarkable, hopefully the gene to cure cancer
