The Shorty Interview with Roots

Why'd you start tweeting?

We are always interested in trying new things. Plus, what a great way to chat directly to our customers and fans!

140 characters of advice for a new user?

Don't be shy! Chat to and follow all that interest you. And importantly, have fun!

What feature should Twitter add?

Tracking and stats would be great. Ability to DM more than one person. Upload images directly. Real time auto refresh.

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

Some conditions may apply. (Cuz we kinda have to always include that!) Try not to shorten anything when possible.
