The Shorty Interview with Kyle Trimble

Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?

I have only unfollowed one person that I can think of. The reason? They made the mistake of threatening my wife! Further action not required

What's your best tweet?

November of 2010 and new to Twitter. "I still don't understand twitter... What the hell am I supposed to do on here?"

Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?

Absolutely! I now have one more thing to check online so I can fill up more of my "spare" time. It is fun though...

Ever get called out for tweeting too much?

Nope... I don't have a whole lot to say. Actions speak louder than words? I heard that somewhere.

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

One-of-a-kind? Probably my wife @AEGTrimble because she is pretty random.

What are some big Twitter faux pas?

Still a bit of a learning curve here, but I would have to say that complaining about everything in life is quite annoying. Positivity people!

Why should we vote for you?

It would make my year... I could use some more positivity in my life.

Why should people follow you?

If people are looking to follow someone that doesn't over-post... I'm your guy.

How do you decide what to tweet?

It's purely dependent on what is happening when I decide to log on. I try to go with the flow. Other times it's WTF Facts that get me going.

What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?

I tried for so long to stay away from LOL.... ugh! BUT I have given in a time or two... or three... possibly more. However, I love brb.

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

God. How amazing would that be... "@GOD RT @KyleOneDelta blah blah blah etc.."? AMAZAZING!

What inspires you to tweet?


Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?

@WhatTheFFacts has the funniest factoids ever. I love that kind of stuff.

What was the funniest trend you've seen?

#Humor for obvious reasons.

Why'd you start tweeting?

My bro-in-law @Aarongoodwin from Ghost Adventures got me started and I liked the idea of seeing random tweets from celebs.

How do you make your tweets unique?

I'll be honest... I don't.
