Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?

Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?

How do you make your tweets unique?
Its my twitter and everything i say is unique because its from me. :)
What inspires you to tweet?
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Nah. I know i tweet too much anyway! but its become such an important part of my life people actually worry when im not around.
140 characters of advice for a new user?
Be Nice to People, Dont force your opinions on people and just be yourself. Making friends is easy.
How long can you go without a tweet?
Longest i can go without tweeting is about an hour. I have my phone with me all the time and i constantly feel the need to tweet.
What question are we not asking here that we should?
I think what sets me apart from the other nominees. I believe thats important because you have to show what your qualities are.
How do you imagine Twitter changing?
More videos and other app integration i guess. Twitter is so easy to adapt it will be around for a long time.
Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?
AgainstSuicide What she is doing is incredible. She sends so much positivity out to people and helps keep people going.
Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?
My 2 closest friends whom i both met through Twitter. They have an ability to cheer me up or make me laugh when i need it most.
What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?
That Spelling on Twitter doesnt matter. I will admit i am not perfect but i try to at least make my tweets understandable.
Why should people follow you?
I dont push, i dont judge, I am me. I respect people & that seems to make them want to follow me.
Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?
AgainstSuicide & AboveSociety are 2 that come to mind. They have a common goal but are unique in their own way.
How do you decide what to tweet?
I dont think about what i tweet. Twitter is an extension of my brain for the world to see.
How do you use social media to motivate yourself or others to live a healthier life?
Because social media is so mobile it motivates me to get out and see the world and still be connected to everyone.
How has social media helped bring your family closer together and #keepgoodgoing?
My family dont use social media but what it has done is create a whole new second family. Ive met so many close friends online.
Why'd you start tweeting?
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
YES! Twitter has opened doors i never thought possible. I have friends across the four corners of the globe thanks to Twitter.
What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?
Respect each other. There is no point in causing someone pain. Twitter isnt high school, its part of life. So stop hating on each other.
How will the world change in the next year?
People will be born, others will die and the world will keep on spinning. No day is the same it is constantly changing.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
Sending DM's to people that resemble Spam is the biggest one. I hate getting those impersonal messages
What will the world be like 10 years from now?
Technology shall be relied upon even more to deal with every day life. And the environment will become an even bigger issue.
