The Shorty Interview with Ayanna Nahmias

What will the world be like 10 years from now?

As imaginative as we can dream, as dire as we can nightmare. Humans are resilient survivors who shall continue to exist despite our nature.

What inspires you to tweet?

Global citizenry. The desire to help millions of people embrace their purpose so they can participate in positively changing our world.

Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?

Relationships, even the virtual, are bound by the rules of engagement or etiquette. I only 'unfollow' when a 'follow' is not reciprocated.

Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?

Not to be 'Pollyannish,' but there is not just one 'funniest' person. Dependent upon mood, hair, traffic or weather I find humor in anyone.
