The Shorty Interview
with Jaclyn Friedman

What's your best tweet?
That's for history to decide. Or at least the Library of Congress.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
One of the things I like about Twitter is I don't have to separate personal & professional. I can just be all of me in one place.
Twitter or Facebook?
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
The satirical takeover of #ineedmasculism was total gold.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
"You." "Great." Almost all of them, honestly. I'm pretty old-school about spelling things.
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
I would faint dead away if @maddow started following me.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Mostly when people are boring and they tweet a lot. I did unfollow one person b/c he tried to murder his gf and gets off on talking about it.
Why should we vote for you?
Because my podcast helps everyone have better sex and avoid being an asshole, all at the same time.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
If by "interesting connection" you mean "did you get laid through Twitter," then the answer is yes.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
How do you make your tweets unique?
What inspires you to tweet?
There are so many rad people on Twitter! I can't let them have all the fun without me. Oh, and social change, too.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
I've gone to Twitter jail a few times, but never heard a complaint from a follower.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Follow people who make you think, not just people you agree with. Listen as least as much as you talk. Signal-boost. Have fun.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
Q: How do you handle trolls? A: Play with them until they no longer amuse me. Then kill them.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
@zerlinamazwell has a tight Twitter game. She's funny, smart, on-point, and really engages w/an open mind in complex conversations.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That everyone is just tweeting about their lunch. If that's what your feed looks like, you need to get out more.
Why should people follow you?
Because they love sex and hate sexism.
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
Probably my favorite is @AvoidComments. Because I really need to be reminded. Also @FeministHulk because duh.
How do you decide what to tweet?
Things that piss me off, things that make me happy, things everyone should know, and questions.
How do you use social media to motivate yourself or others to live a healthier life?
I rat myself out when I'm not exercising & humblebrag when I am. Nice tweets from random strangers (and friends!) are exceedingly motivating.
How has social media helped bring your family closer together and #keepgoodgoing?
We live everywhere from SoCal to Austria, and social media makes it possible to be involved in each others daily lives like never before.
Why'd you start tweeting?
To find the parties when I was at a conference.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Did I mention the getting laid part? Oh, fine, it also teaches me new things every day & keeps me in touch w/people I love who are far away.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Shut up, listen and think.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Being all self-promotion, all the time. Share the mic! Also, learn how to apologize when you fuck up. It's not that hard.
