The Shorty Interview with Max Peter Coates

What are some big Twitter faux pas?

Accusing or wrongly accusing people. That can get you in a bit of twitter trouble. #twitterpolice #twitterjail

What's the most interesting connection you've made through Twitter?

There have been lot's, I've had people come up to me and say "I've tweeted you and now I am meeting you for real" which is quite cool.

What's your best tweet?

Decided I would set-up a new business at Autosport Show! Get in touch for birthday cakes! #performancebaking #typo pic.twitter.com/COvDcf5n

How do you decide what to tweet?

I tweet about how I feel and what I am doing so there isn't really a decision, it's just what's happening.
