The Shorty Interview with Bath City FC

Twitter or Facebook?

Twitter has been MUCH more successful for us as a way to both interact and grow our fanbase, especially over the last six months.

What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?

One fan objected to the club getting involved in Twitter because he said it was a 'gossip website.'

How do you use Twitter in your professional life?

It is the way we keep our fans up to date with the latest news, match updates, and player banter.

How long can you go without a tweet?

Well, I've answered four questions in this interview now without sending one. Getting close to a record I think...

What are six things you could never do without?

At work they are: smart phone (with Twitter), and err.... well, I can do most of my work from there if I have to. After that just content!

140 characters of advice for a new user?

Twitter is an art more than a science. Observe what other do, copy and then find your own voice.

Ever get called out for tweeting too much?

Recently someone complained and then unfollowed during pre-match coverage, but we picked up another 20 followers that day.

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

It would be nice if some of our former players who are now internationally famous followed us, but none are on Twitter yet.

How do you imagine Twitter changing?

In the last six months LOTS of our fans who were resistant to Twitter initially have been joining. We're not alone, and it will bring change.

Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?

Bobby Zamora, who played for us briefly in 2000 and is now internationally famous.

Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?

Who do you admire most for his or her use of Twitter?

Manchester City FC have integrated Twitter into their fans' match day experience. It's very inspiring.

Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?

In football @beatthelastman is brilliant. In general @ThisisPartridge is fantastic.

What are some big Twitter faux pas?

Running multiple accounts and forgetting which account you are tweeting from! Not tweeting for 20 min during a match.

Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?

@WeLoveBath @BladudthePig @BathPope (now inactive)
