The Shorty Interview with Akash Sharma

Why'd you start tweeting?

Twitter is so simple. I mean it's so easy to keep up to date on current events.

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

@JustinTimberlake I'm just a huge JT fan

Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?

@KobeOTH love that guy, always working hard on OTH and he always puts a smile on my face with his tweets!

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

I have to give this one to @JustinBieber, I love the fact he has so many followers yet he always interacts with his fans.
