The Shorty Interview

What's your best tweet?
Maybe when organising our free 'National undergraduate test' exercise, e.g. https://twitter.com/educarchile/status/286436188431204352.
What are six things you could never do without?
The people that we work with, time, internet connection, our educational resources, the conviction of what we do is important and email.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
Putting teachers, principals and students together through content, learning from them and following policy makers' actions and opinions.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Twitter or Facebook?
For what purpose? Facebook is a better way to connect with the students in Chile. But Twitter is such a great way to follow online events.
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
What feature should Twitter add?
Historical #topic review; stats built-in a public reputation profile, options to type different types of tweets e.g steps (1, 2, 3).
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
In Spanish: estudiantes, docentes, familia, educación, aprendizaje. English: students, teachers, families, learning.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Internationally, we dream @SirKenRobinson.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Why should we vote for you?
'Cause I'm in my way to share new contents, good ideas and to deliver training for Chilean students to enter the university.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
A connection with the students and their concerns about their training and study for the PSU, a national test relevant for their future.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
To become a national subject as #psueducarchile, our nation-wide training program for undergraduate exam which won Wise Awards
How do you make your tweets unique?
Our contents are unique. We put the focus on what really matters in education and gives an educational perspective of daily world.
What inspires you to tweet?
Incentivize curiosity, believing that every day you can learn something new and spreading the best ideas for inspiring new ones
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Not yet, we follow the slow, easy and repetitive path of education when forming skills and attitudes.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Tweet your expertise, build community, enhance power of Twitter language, use links, read what you'll tweet, respect other users, and enjoy being part of it.
How long can you go without a tweet?
Two days, while I think of new ideas to share, or a weekend. Educarchile also needs a break, like schools.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
Why do you stay and offer your experience and knowledge or a useful service by Twitter?
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
Getting a broader public, helping the world tagging and collectively curing the growing massiveness of content production and public opinion
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
Sorry We can't choose one! We proud about how great are doing some public services in Chile (libraries, museums, ministries) using Twitter.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
A friend and co-worked @gmunozstuardo.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
You can buy attention. You can beg for attention. Or you can earn attention by creating something valuable and publishing it online for free.
Why should people follow you?
Because wherever they are, they will always find great educational resources to teach and learn and good ideas for education.
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
@angetic in teacher, @uchile in university, @jumastorga in journalist, @gmunozstuardo in researcher, @Mineduc @EnlacesMineduc in education.
How do you decide what to tweet?
Impact, newest materials and news, interest based on our audiences, temporal proximiy and dates to remember.
How do you use social media to motivate yourself or others to live a healthier life?
Seeking for good ideas and calling people to know creative ways to develop a better society.
How has social media helped bring your family closer together and #keepgoodgoing?
We are committed with the welfare of everyone's family, as one of our 4 featured publics. Our "two families" are inevitable connected.
Why'd you start tweeting?
We wanted to spread our contents and tell wide range of people about educational concerns that are changing the educational systems.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Yes, it has become a real-time issue index, a cardholder, a broadcasting platform, a public square monitor, a 2-way communication device.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Starting new threads and publishing self-produced spanish contents.
How will the world change in the next year?
We see the world turning to Latin America to get good examples about strengthening ties to share knowledge, good ideas and innovations
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Scheduling tweets, routinizing interaction, passing Twitter language over, posting out of expertise, noticing a mistake when people retweet.
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
World will be slightly less unequal specially to access to knowledge. The limits will be our own curiosity.
