Tweetdeck! Lovely design, very usable. I couldn't go on without it.
Twitter or Facebook?

Parkas in the summertime. Hysterical.
What feature should Twitter add?
Honestly, nothing. I like how simple it is right now and hope it stays like this forever.
Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?
Dave McKean, one of my favorite artists. But then again, I don't even know if he has the internet at his small home in England.
What are some words or phrases you refuse to shorten for brevity?
Pretty much everything. I try to tweet as if I were speaking and sometimes struggle to get things to fit. I'm very stubborn :)
Is there someone you want to follow you who doesn't already? If so, who?
Not really. I approach this medium very openly, where if people want to listen or discuss, then I'll be here.
Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?
Of course. I won't get into specifics, but I tend to not follow those outside of the creative realm. I enjoy having inspiration on hand.
Why should we vote for you?
I'm ambitious, inspired, creative and honest. I love creating as much as helping others find their vision. I'm also a big nerd :)

How do you make your tweets unique?
I keep it honest and optimistic. I tweet about what I like, not about what I dislike. It's positive energy, man, and we all need it.
What inspires you to tweet?
Art and design, no question! I can't imagine not having this connection to so many creative types. It's wonderful.
Ever get called out for tweeting too much?
Just once, and it confused the hell out of me. It's not like I was shouting in the guy's face in a library.
140 characters of advice for a new user?

fame. He posts so much inspirational material everyday it's almost hard to keep up.
Why'd you start tweeting?
To connect with like-minded artists and designers, and have closer contact to the global design scene.
Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?
Yes, I love seeing what artists are working on and what news they post. Twitter makes the creative world a LOT smaller, which I like.

Twitter is a great vehicle to hold poster giveaways to a wide and attentive audience. I've done several and they are super fun.
How will the world change in the next year?
Hopefully, less conflict and more understanding. It's about time we stopped shooting and started listening.
What are some big Twitter faux pas?
I dislike seeing 'LOL' after every sentence whether it's meant to be funny or not. Ridiculous. LOL . . . oops.

Hopefully war and currency will be abolished so we can all explore space, together, forever.
