The Shorty Interview
with Kathy Zucker

What's your best tweet?
@SkyClubFitness is an oasis. it's like the walking dead episode when they goto the cdc compound in dc. #hoboken
What are six things you could never do without?
Eyeglasses, toothbrush, nail file, Droid X phone, flashlight & the trust of my community.
How do you use Twitter in your professional life?
I tweet interesting article links, deal tips & event info to keep the 1,300+ Metro Moms Network® members in the know.
What's your favorite Twitter app?
Twitter or Facebook?
What was the funniest trend you've seen?
The funniest 25 autocorrects of 2012. Hi-larious
What feature should Twitter add?
Get a verified account by driver's license. It's like, hello, Olympic medalist over here! Hello? Anyone? @mayayana12
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Susana Cruz, another Hoboken mom. I guess that whole giving birth while working full time is taking priority over social media.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
@RMZFarrell, I love your snark & Disney pics. Sometimes you follow me, sometimes you don't, but you are always welcome back.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
@jlin7. I love Jeremy Lin's story & my kids wear his Knicks jersey, but I don't actually know how to play basketball.
Why should we vote for you?
When the sh*t hits the fan in Hoboken, people come running. A vote for me = promoting community social media crowdsourcing.
Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?
What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?
All the moms on my company management team. We live two blocks from each other & had no clue when we met on Twitter.
Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?
How do you make your tweets unique?
Synopsis + one sentence = comprehension
What inspires you to tweet?
Anything that makes me say, "wow!" gets tweeted. After a lot of shortening – 140 chars force me to be succinct, unlike, say, on my blog.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Pick somebody you admire & learn from what they are doing. Topics, tweet frequency, conversations. Why recreate the wheel?
How long can you go without a tweet?
What question are we not asking here that we should?
What was your best Shorty nomination?
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
Becoming more user friendly. If you want to grow your user base, it shouldn't take a PhD. Or a social media agency.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
@dustyearthmom. She gets more leverage out of her pugs than I knew was possible.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
Twitter is only useful for complaining to companies or public officials.
Why should people follow you?
People follow me to get answers to their burning questions. @ five people and I will be the only one who responds.
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
@cecilyk @alizasherman – who knew social media and caribou steak could look so appetizing?
How do you decide what to tweet?
If I see something related to Hoboken, parenting or business that makes me say "wow!" then I tweet it out.
How do you use social media to motivate yourself or others to live a healthier life?
I love to tweet about cool deals or family places, so that means leaving the house and walking everywhere. Twitter = cardio workout!
How has social media helped bring your family closer together and #keepgoodgoing?
Family & neighbors follow me to see real time kid pics & find out when to move their cars to avoid hurricane floodwaters.
Why'd you start tweeting?
My husband started tweeting about six months before I did, and I thought it looked interesting. #famouslastwords
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Twitter has given me a new career. I could easily get hired in social media marketing - a job that didn't exist when I was working full-time.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Be present. Sometimes people disappear for months and then I wonder if they're dead.
How will the world change in the next year?
We're all going to become a lot more self-reliant in 2013. Learning you can't rely on flood insurance or local authorities = on our own.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Blind RT (not checking attached link first) = naughty. I plead the fifth, right, @alizasherman?
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
