The Shorty Interview with Addy Miller

What was the funniest trend you've seen?

I see a lot of Norman Reedus fans. I think it is funny bc he is just the nicest guy, but these women see him as someone to marry!

Has Twitter changed your life? If yes, how?

Yes it has. I have been able to connect to new fans and I get to talk to people from all over the world. It is amazing!

What are some big Twitter faux pas?

Once it is tweeted, it's public domain. Some people let their emotions get in the way of their minds!

Why'd you start tweeting?

I felt is was the next step for me socially. I have had a facebook page with lots of fans, so I wanted to see what tweeting was all about.

Twitter or Facebook?

Oooo that's a tough one. I love them both. Facebook bc it is easier to see responses from posts, Twitter because it is easy, quick and fun!

Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?

#Moira. She's a girl I have met that is fighting leukemia in Canada. She's a huge Walking Dead fan. I think about her all the time.

What will the world be like 10 years from now?

You mean if we live past 2012? LOL. I would love to see flying cars by then, and 3D tvs are standard and you don't need glasses!

How do you use Twitter in your professional life?

I use it to connect with my fans. I know I'm not a big star or anything, so social networks like twitter help me get my name out there.

Have you ever unfollowed someone? Who and why?

I have. It was someone that used cuss words and seemed angry all the time. I was afraid my mom would see it and take me off twitter.

How do you imagine Twitter changing?

Maybe twitter can have some fun apps for games. But I like Twitter the way it is!

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

I say "Thank you" and "You're Welcome" instead of TY and YW. I just think it is worth saying it completely if you mean it.

How do you decide what to tweet?

I usually answer questions or retweet to support a friend or share some news. I admit I am private to most of my personal life.

What are six things you could never do without?

#1 my family. They are the reason I can live this crazy life! #2 my dogs. #3 my ipod, I love music. #4 sour skittles #5 my computer #6 acting

How long can you go without a tweet?

a couple of days if I'm on set. I try to stay focused in my character.

What inspires you to tweet?

My fans inspire me. I am so thankful I can even type that sentence. This whole experience has been incredible!

Why should we vote for you?

I hope to prove you don't have to be a huge, A list celebrity to be worthy of votes, but a nice, sweet person that loves her fans can win too

What is one of the biggest misconceptions of Twitter?

That every tweet sent is seen. It all depends on timing of being on at the same time you tweet. There are a lot of tweets to read!

Who do you wish had a Twitter feed but doesn't?

Dakota Fanning. I worked with her once and she is my idol. I would love to reconnect with her. There are so many posers out there.

What do you wish people would do more of on Twitter?

Tell jokes and share photos of puppies! LOL. Just kidding. I really can't think of anything, I like the ppl I follow and follow me!

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

Taylor Swift! I am a huge fan of hers!!

Who is the funniest person on Twitter that you follow?

The Ellen Show - Ellen Degenres!! She is so funny! I would love to be on her show one day!

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

Norman Reedus. He is just a genuine person that cares for his fans and does little things to make their days. He's like that in person too.

What question are we not asking here that we should?

What are YOU doing to better the world and why? My answer would be - raising money and awareness for Autism. It is personal to me.

How do you make your tweets unique?

I like zombies, I mean I did play one. So as a young girl, mine could be considered unique because I like scary stuff.

140 characters of advice for a new user?

I like using "quote retweet" to answer most tweets, it is easier to see what you are responding too, for both you and me!

What feature should Twitter add?

DMs that can include more than two people chatting back and forth and can also have photos sent back and forth

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

A connection with a producer. I am still over the moon over it!

Terms you wish would start trending on Twitter right now?

Um. #Moira #AutismAwareness #WalkingDead #Addy

Ever get called out for tweeting too much?

No, noone has been mean to me at all on twitter, and my mom is very cool about it at home.

Can you name some one-of-a-kind Twitter accounts that you follow?

@JonnyFairplay @ghostsnhaunts @dixonsvixens @shortyvotes :) @LegendsofHorror @celebutardz @deaddavesradio so many!!

How will the world change in the next year?

Not sure, that's kinda over my head, but I hope for breakthroughs in autism research and that the economy improves.

What's your best tweet?

A conversation I had with #Moira a brave little girl I have become her friend and I hope she beats the rare leukemia she has!

Why should people follow you?

I hope bc they liked me as an actress and want to see how this crazy, scary but exciting journey takes me. I think I am fun too :)
