The Shorty Interview with Scott Derek

Twitter or Facebook?

Both. I set up my Twitter to accept my Facebook posts because I tend to go over the 140 character limit at times.

140 characters of advice for a new user?

Be accurate, be patient, and then people will find you. :)

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

Almost every word. I dislike the "texting world" that we live in-is it so hard to write out simple words?

How do you make your tweets unique?

I really don't-I just try to mention the location so if someone were to look up the weather for a specific area my tweet will appaear!
